About Teaching Engineering at TU Dortmund University, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Curriculum

The curriculum of the subject Engineering in the Bachelor’s program with Teaching Profile is oriented towards the development of fundamental vocational competences for teaching and education, assessment, counseling and diagnostics as well as evaluation and quality assurance. Here, the ability to handle diversity is emphasized.

The curriculum is designed in a way that it also qualifies graduates to become a teacher. Your bachelor studies prepare you for a Master of Education focusing on German Haupt- and Realschule as well as the corresponding years at Gesamtschule (HRGe).

Engineering can be studied as a major in your core area and as a minor. These are your possible combinations:

Engineering as Major Subject

You are required to complete your studies of didactic fundamentals either in German or Mathematics within the core area, but your didactic subject may not be identical with your minor. Possible minors are Art, Biology, British/American Studies, Catholic Theology, Chemistry, German Studies, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Protestant Theology, Social Sciences, Sports and Textile Design. Students who strive for a Master of Education GHRGe focusing on HRGe are advised to do their didactic studies in mathematics if it is not their major subject.

Engineering as Minor Subject

In the course of your minor studies you will be taught the fundamentals of didactics in German or Mathematics within the framework of your core area. Here, the subject of your didactic studies and your major must not be identical. Possible majors are Art, Biology, British/American Studies, Catholic Theology, Chemistry, German Studies, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Protestant Theology, Social Sciences, Sports and Textile Design.

Students who strive for a Master of Education GHRGe focusing on HRGe are advised to do their didactic studies in Mathematics if their major is not Mathematics.

Irrespective of your subject combination you can start working on your bachelor’s thesis when having acquired the required credits in or after the fifth semester.

The curriculum of the subject Engineering in the Bachelor’s program with Rehabilitation Profile, too, is oriented towards the development of fundamental vocational competences for teaching and education, assessment, counselling and diagnostics as well as evaluation and quality assurance. Here the ability to handle diversity is emphasized. The B.Sc. prepares graduates for the M.Sc. in Teaching at Special Needs Schools and qualifies them to understand and teach technical systems and processes.

The subject Engineering can be chosen either as a minor or as a second in your core area. If Engineering is chosen as a minor subject the aforementioned modules are to be completed, for Engineering as a second subject only the module Basic Concepts and Fundamentals of Engineering are required. You can start working on your bachelor’s thesis when having acquired the required credits in or after the fifth semester.

Machine Technology can only be studied as major subject. Students can select the following minors: Art, British/American Studies, Catholic Theology, Chemistry, German Studies, Manufacturing Technology, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Protestant Theology, Psychology, Sports and Special Education (foci: learning, emotional and social development, physical and motor development, vision, language).

The Bachelor of Science shall prepare graduates for taking up a Master of Education focusingon vocational colleges, serves as a basis for master’s programs in Mechanical Engineering and simultaneously qualifies for jobs in different employment systems. With completion of your bachelor studies you have acquired a first vocational qualification.

The curriculum in Machine Technology provides students with the expertise and competences answering to the requirements and dynamics of the professional world. Thus, they are enabled to work academically, to think critically and to act responsibly.

You can start working on your bachelor’s thesis when having acquired the required credits in or after the fifth semester Manufacturing Technology can only be studied as a minor subject in combination with Machine Technology as a major.

The Bachelor of Science degree prepares you for taking up a Master of Education focusing on vocational colleges and provides students with the expertise and competences in Mechanical Engineering answering to the requirements and changes of the professional world. Thus, they are enabled to work academically, to think critically and to act responsibly.

You can begin working on your bachelor’s thesis after having acquired the required credits in or after the fifth semester. Future teachers at vocational colleges - both for Machine Technology and Manufacturing Technology - are to complete internships in schools totaling 52 weeks.
