New degree programmes: apply now!

What are your plans now that you've graduated high school? Have you decided whether to pursue vocational training or a university education yet? And what about after your bachelor's degree: will you start working right away, or do you plan to get your master's degree first? Many young people are currently thinking about questions like these. And with its wide range of attractive degree programmes, the University of Bayreuth is a good place to turn to for answers. This year, the University is adding three new bachelor's programmes and three new master's programmes to its broad spectrum of around 150 programmes of study.

The University of Bayreuth, located in northern Bavaria, has always reacted to social changes and the related demands on sciences and business by creating innovative, interdisciplinary programmes, e.g. its master's programme Sport Technology or the supplemental programme in Environmental Law. With around 13,400 students, the University of Bayreuth is a comfortable size, and its students and instructors make contact with each other quickly thanks to the University's unique campus. This encourages interdisciplinary thinking and a cooperative atmosphere, reflected in a range of interdisciplinary degree programmes such as the new bachelor's programme Environmental & Resource Technology, which links engineering and the geosciences in a unique way.

New degree programmes include

Bachelor's Programmes

Environmental & Resource Technology (B.Sc.)Hide

The degree programme Environmental & Resource Technology (B.Sc.) addresses the challenge of protecting the global eco-systems and supplying the growing world population with sufficient raw materials and energy. It combines a clear engineering focus with (geo-) ecological subjects relevant to resources and the environment so that graduates are able to develop interdisciplinary solutions to problems in environmental and climate protection. The University of Bayreuth also offers attractive master's programmes such as Energy Science & Technology, Biotechnology, Biotechnology and Process Engineering, or Geo-Ecology, thus offering outstanding graduates the prospect of going on to pursue a research-based master's degree and doctoral degree.

Professional education with an emphasis on electrical engineering (B.Ed.)Hide

The University of Bayreuth is also adding to its programmes in teacher education. The bachelor's programme Professional education with an emphasis on electrical engineering (B.Ed.) teaches students the interrelationships of electrical engineering on the basis of engineering, mathematics, and the natural sciences in addition to skills in didactics and education. The objective of the programme is to provide a basis for master's studies; the master's programme then qualifies one to become a teacher at vocational schools.
