Why a double degree?
The students of the Double Degree Programme in Engineering graduate to two European engineering degrees with one study programme.
The programme offers students a chance to spend one year of their studies at the respective partner university, Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences or Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences. The teaching contents have been matched between the two institutions and academic achievements from abroad will be acknowledged by the home institution.
The programme includes a personalized study plan and an option for practical training in both countries.
Graduates of the programme get their Bachelor diploma from both partner institutions. This shows the future employers that they have gone through an international training and thus have acquired both professional expertise and intercultural competence - the two key qualifications of future engineers working in a globalised world.
