The dual study concept

What does „dual“ mean? - The dual study concept

A dual study is defined by a university degree with permanently integrated practice assignements in companies. The knowledge is transmitted at two different locations: During the practical terms the student is learning in a company, during the theoretical terms at an university. The Curriculum consists of a combination of theory and practically learned know-how. This change of practical and theoretical terms lasts during the whole study, that's why a dual study is different to a normal course in terms of higher practical reference. That’s what we call “dual system”.
