Using their expertise in engineering science, holders of Bachelor of Engineering degrees design and build machines and systems for the most varied application areas. They independently work out goal-oriented, practical and economical solutions based on engineering science and using state-of-the-art technological knowledge.
Each semester of the dual studies program consists of two to three months of study in college and a subsequent practical phase at LEWA. Training during the practical, specialized phase builds upon the contents of the preceding theoretical phase so that the contents taught are explored in depth and added upon with a real-life focus.
The program ends after the sixth semester with the bachelor's thesis. The graduate will then be conferred the degree of Bachelor of Engineering. According to the law on higher education, this degree is equal to the degrees of universities and universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschule).
