To qualify as a teacher at a vocational school, students have to complete a master's degree programme and an 18-month internship after the bachelor's degree.
Teacher or engineer
Are you interested in becoming a teacher? Are you interested in electrical engineering?
Are you thinking about becoming a teacher or an engineer?
This unique electrical engineering and teaching course enables you to decide after you've completed your bachelor's.
How does it work?
Initial pedagogical content and an internship in a school are integrated into the electrical engineering bachelor's degree programme. In this way you can gain insights into the profession of a teacher and engineering work. You can thus decide on your career path while you're studying.
The focus of the subsequent three-semester master's degree programme at the Heidelberg University of Education is on pedagogical content and teaching theory.
The bachelor's degree provides you with a wide range of career options. One possibility is to keep working towards becoming a teacher, while another is to apply to work in industry as an engineer, or complete your studies with an engineering master's degree programme. Teaching is not your only option.
If you decide to become a teacher, an 18-month internship follows the successful completion of a master's degree programme.
Afterwards, you can teach in technical sixth form colleges, engineering colleges, vocational schools etc. There is a major lack of young talent in all these types of schools, meaning that you have a high chance of finding a job anywhere in Germany.
