Short Description

The  Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education for Single-subject Bachelor's Graduates (LBS-Sprint) is aimed at graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or nursing sciences. The requirement for admission is a Bachelor’s degree in either  Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Nursing Sciences.

Students learn how to teach the chosen vocational subject area of Metals Technology, Electrical Engineering or Nursing, as well as Vocational and Business Education and a teaching subject.

Students can choose from the following teaching subjects: German Studies (only in combination with the vocational subject Nursing), Protestant Religious Education, Mathematics, Physics, Politics and Physical Education.

Students complete four weeks of practical training in the vocational subject area and two weeks in the teaching subject.

Graduates of the  Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education for Single-subject Bachelor's Graduates (LBS-Sprint) may apply for the preparatory phase of teacher training (teacher training period) for technical education.

Areas of Focus

  • The degree programme focuses mainly on the teaching subject, worth 60 credit points, in addition to teaching methodology in the vocational subject area, worth 23 credit points, and Vocational and Business Education, worth 22 credit points.
Course Content

The degree programme is divided into teaching methodology in the vocational subject area, worth 23 credit points, the teaching subject, worth 60 credit points, and Vocational and Business Education, worth 22 credit points. The degree programme concludes with a written Master’s thesis, worth 15 credit points. The Master's thesis can be written in the vocational subject area or in vocational and business education.
