Short Description

Metals Technology is offered as a vocational subject area within the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education for Single-subject Bachelor’s Graduates (LBS-Sprint). In addition, students are required to study a second subject or teaching subject. During their degree, students gain the teaching methodological skills in the vocational subject of Metals Technology or Automotive Engineering required as a basis for teaching in technical education.

This involves the analysis, design and evaluation of teaching, and includes internships in vocational schools. In addition, students analyse the professions with a view to taking account of social and technological developments and using them to develop their teaching and vocational schools. The engineering skills acquired during the Bachelor’s degree are addressed, their relevance to vocational education is reflected upon, and they are extended with additional concepts in a class-like situation.

Areas of Focus

  • Teaching methodology in the vocational subject area of Metals Technology
  • Teaching methodology in the vocational subject area of Automotive Engineering
Course Content

The programme in the vocational subject area of Metals Technology comprises six modules. The following modules are elective or conditional modules for students who have not studied teaching methodology or vocational education content during their Bachelor’s degree:

  • Introduction to Studying the Vocational Subject Area of Metals Technology for Single-subject Bachelor’s Graduates (Teacher Training)
  • Foundations and Structures of the Vocational Subject Area of Metals Technology (Teacher Training)
  • These are supplemented by the following core modules:
  • Analysis of Vocational Science (Teacher Training)
  • Training Practice in the Vocational Subject Area of Metals Technology (Teacher Training)
  • Curriculum and Lesson Design in the Vocational Subject Area of Metals Technology (Teacher Training)
  • Master’s thesis

Students must provide evidence of having completed 52 weeks of practical training or relevant vocational education and training before registering for their Master’s thesis. Students may complete this training either during or before their degree programme. Students must be able to provide evidence of having completed at least 12 weeks of these 52 weeks of practical training within two semesters of starting the degree programme.
