Find everything about studying at the Duale Hochschule Gera-Eisenach here:

The Cooperative University (“Duale Hochschule”) of Gera-Eisenach offers a wide range of bachelor degree programmes in the fields of Business Administration, Engineering, Computer Science and Social Pedagogy at both its Eisenach and Gera campuses.

All degrees are designed as “practice-integrated dual programmes”, consisting of six full-time semesters. Each semester is divided into a theoretical part held at the university, and a practical part based on the theory learned, held on-site at the location of a co-educational industry practice partner (“Praxispartner”). During the final practical phase, students are required to write a bachelor thesis, in which they demonstrate their proficiency in solving a complex practical problem, utilising the theoretical and practical knowledge and methods they have acquired.
