First a bachelor’s, then a master’s…

How is a degree programme actually structured?

In Germany and other European countries, there is a two-stage bachelor’s and master’s system.

Courses are therefore comparable in both structure and quality. This enables graduates to enter employment more quickly and improves their chances on the European job market. Chemnitz University of Technology also offers diplomas on some courses. Learn how our degree programmes are structured and what a typical semester looks like by clicking the following links.
