Trainee Programme

Programme Structure

The programme is open to all university applicants and first and second semester bachelor's students.

Furtwangen University has been offering the cooperative trainee programme together with both regional and national companies since 2002. It currently offers over 150 trainee positions in over 45 different local companies. While working towards their application-oriented degree programme, the students/trainees receive the ideal training for their future workplace, gaining additional technical expertise and hands-on work experience.

Income

During the entire training period, students receive an income of €750 per month.  As a rule of thumb, one semester of financial support requires 10 weeks of full-time employment in the company.

The programme offers the partner companies involved an excellent opportunity to recruit skilled staff and potential management.

M Programme

The M Programme comprises the normally 5-semester period of advanced studies, beginning in the 3rd semester. Trainees carry out both their internship (in the 5th semester) and their thesis work (usually in the 7th semester) in the company. In addition they work in the semester breaks for a total of 16 weeks on various company projects, thus gaining valuable additional practical experience.

L Programme

The L Programme comprises the complete, normally 7-semester study programme, plus one additional semester. In addition to the internship semester and the thesis work, as in the "M" programme above, the trainees work during the semester holidays for a total of 46 weeks in different departments and on various projects. Additionally, after the 2nd semester, they voluntarily complete a further practical semester (which the university counts as leave of absence.)

Prerequisities

Applicants generally require:

  • Committment and high performance
  • High motivation and enthusiasm
  • Initiative, ability to work independently and sense of responsibility
  • Strong communications and teamworking skills and flexibility

Individual partner companies may have additional company-specific requirements.

Which study programme and which company?

In principle it is possible to take any bachelor's degree offered at Furtwangen University as part of the cooperative trainee programme.
