Engineer Pedagogy (Bachelor)

The Bachelor's degree programme in Engineering Education combines an engineering degree with elements of classical teaching training. This means that you have the option of entering the seventh semester of the teacher's training programme at TU Dresden after graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Zwickau. You can then take the state examination for vocational schools and have the chance to become a teacher in the civil service.

In addition, the degree programme qualifies you to pursue a career as an engineer in various disciplines and to work in advanced training institutes or the training departments of companies.

The degree programme is part of the OptLA-Project of the Saxon Ministry of Science and the Arts (Sächsisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst - SMWK)
