What does it cover?

In the first two semesters of the study programme, students are introduced to three areas of engineering: Applied Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Food Technology. Here they learn about different specialist disciplines and acquire basic skills. In the third semester students elect to specialise in one of the three areas.

The study programme is intended both for prospective international and German students, especially prospective students from an immigrant background.

The language of instruction in the introductory part of the programme (“Basisstudium”) is English. This helps to improve access to the programme for international students and to develop the language skills of German students.

In addition to knowledge of the subject, students acquire linguistic and intercultural skills as well as competency in social and cultural sciences.

Your Profile

  • You enjoy science and technology.
  • You are keen to get an insight into different kinds of engineering so that you can subsequently decide on the right specialisation for your degree programme.
  • You want to prepare yourself in the best possible way for internationalisation in industry by learning other languages.

Your background

  • You have a high-school leaving certificate, technical high-school leaving certificate or a qualification as a master craftsman.
  • Your proficiency in English is good enough (B1 level) for you to follow teaching in English.

Information for new students

Introductory session: October 16.-18., 2017

Before the regular classes of the 1st semester start, introductory sessions will help you to get familiar with the campus and your fellow students. Beside welcoming events, you will get a lot of information around the degree program, planning of lessons, visiting the library as well as the city of Fulda, and much more.

Start: Monday, October 16, 2017

You will find further information under "Downloads".

We look forward to meeting you!


Preparatory Course Mathematics, October 4.-10., 2017

Do not be afraid of mathematics!

We want to help you to have a successful start in your studies. Therefore, a preparatory course in mathematics is offered before the semester starts. It will refresh and supplement your knowledge and closes any gaps that may exist between school knowledge and study requirements. You will find more information under "Downloads". In addition, we offer regular tutorials during the first semesters. Our student mentors help you to answer your questions and assist with any problems that arise during the first semesters at the University.

Contents of the course:

The preparatory course in mathematics will refresh and supplement your knowledge and closes any gaps that may exist between school knowledge and study requirements. We strongly recommend that students attend this course in order to simplify the entry into student life.

The course is free of charge and requires no registration.


General orientation week for foreign students, October 9.-15., 2017

The International Office has organized a special orientation week for new international students at Fulda University of Applied Sciences to answer questions about enrolment, classes, campus, making friends, and many other topics. During this week, we will take the first steps together and you will be able to meet many other students.

You can expect an exciting week packed with activities and a lot of valuable information. Student mentors from International Office will be your first contact and will accompany during the first week at the university.

Start: Monday, October 9, 2017

Registration is needed at the International Office

Programme content and structure

The Bachelor of International Engineering programme commences each year in the winter semester. The standard duration of studies is eight semesters (240 ECTS credit points). The first two semesters of the study programme cover general engineering principles (including mathematics, physics, computer science and chemistry), and the language of instruction is English. An important component of this introductory study (“Basisstudium”) is for students to learn German to the level of the DSH II German proficiency examination (for students whose mother tongue is German this is replaced by an equivalent course in a foreign language). Students are introduced in an “Orientation” module to essential content of the three available specialisations (Applied Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Food Technology). This is intended to make it easier for them to choose their subsequent specialisation (third to eighth semester).

Detailed information on the programme content, structure and the detailed description of the modules can be found in the current examination regulations (see Quicklinks).

Career prospects

The study programme prepares students for working in an international environment. Graduates acquire skills in planning, processing and evaluating technical or specialist tasks and problems in engineering disciplines.
