Fields of study at our school.

What are our 6 fields of study?
  • Construction
  • Woodworking
  • Mechanics
  • Electricity
  • Graphic communication and media
  • Industrial sciences
What are the students supposed to study after 6th form?

A lot of our students are ready to start working but those who chose a more theoretical education are supposed to continue their studies. This is a short overview of the possible options:

  • Industrial science: This is a very theoretical section which prepares students to become an industrial engineer. So, a lot of maths and 5 more years to study to obtain that master!
  • Students of the sections electromechanics, electronics ICT and building and wood technics will aim for a bachelor in their study field.
  • All other studies can also aim for this bachelor but are essentially prepared to start on the workfloor. Therefore they also do internships in their last year
