What Are the Students Supposed to Study After 6th Form?

Many of our students are ready to start working, but those who chose a more theoretical education are encouraged to continue their studies. Here is a brief overview of the possible options:

  • Industrial Science: A theoretical section preparing students to become industrial engineers, involving a lot of mathematics and an additional five years of study to earn a master's degree.
  • Students in electromechanics, electronics ICT, and building and wood technics will aim for a bachelor's degree in their study field.
  • All other studies also prepare students for this bachelor's degree, but they are primarily trained to start working immediately. Hence, they participate in internships in their final year.
