International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE) Do you want to change and improve the world as an engineer? Then the cooperative bachelor’s degree programme in Sustainable Engineering (BEng) is the right one for you. It combines electrical engineering and mechanical engineering and focuses on energy efficiency, regenerative energies and sustainability. As a cooperative degree, it combines studying with business training and leads to a vocational qualification and a university degree after four-and-a-half years.
Programme content Our cooperative degree programme in Sustainable Engineering (BEng) is a training path that combines vocational training with studies. Here, theory and practice are combined in a way that is not possible during a regular programme of study. The overall duration of the cooperative study programme is nine semesters. During the first and second semester, students are given practical vocational training in a company. Study at the H-BRS begins with the third semester. In keeping with our tradition as a university of applied sciences, students already apply what they have learned in practice during their course of study: during the practical semester and when writing their bachelor thesis, students again work in the company.
Students first learn the engineering and scientific basics. Subjects such as renewable energies, ethics and environmental science create the basis for understanding sustainability. They deepen their knowledge in modules such as sustainability and life cycle analyses and energy efficient residential buildings. Modules such as measurement and regulation technology and thermodynamics provide an engineering background. In the elected subjects and in projects, students have the opportunity to select topics according to their particular area of interest.
All teaching is conducted in German. Deadline for the winter term enrolment: 17 september.
