The MATSE vocational training course has been run at the Donaueschingen Schools of Home Economics and Business (KHS) since 2019/20. In the Study Plus model, the Faculty of Computer Science at Furtwangen University cooperates with the KHS and various companies in the region. A list of our cooperation partners can be found below.

Programme structure

The Study Plus course takes 9 semesters. Half of the first four semesters is spent learning theory (at university and vocational school) and half on practical training in a company. The qualification examination is taken at the Chamber of Commerce after only two years. This is followed by five semesters at Furtwangen University, where you will most likely take the Robotics and Autonomous Systems specialization. The practical study semester and the bachelor's thesis are carried out at the training company.

Study Plus Computer Science is a cooperative degree programme with integrated vocational training making it possible to gain two qualifications simultaneously: a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and the  Mathematical Software Developer qualification awarded by the Chamber of Commerce.

Thanks to the high degree of practical content, the Study Plus programme is not only an academic qualification, it also ensures that graduates are ready to work right away.
