The Dual Studies track is a comprehensive cooperative educational concept. Students work and study at the same time. It is a reaction to two challenges: to raise the employability rate of university graduates and to provide the labor market with qualified employees.
The program consists of two parts: academic and practical training, the program is implemented at two locations: the university and a partner company.
For the university, the content of the academic part is the same as for regular students concerning the level and quality of the taught courses. Also, the number of academic courses is roughly the same.
