Study overview

The part-time Bachelor's degree course in "Applied Polymer Technology" is a broadly based and practice-oriented course that prepares students for a wide range of applications in the plastics industry.

Engineering and business fundamentals are supplemented with modules for personal development and profile modules, which include special knowledge in the field of plastics:

  • Process control
  • Simulation technology
  • Surface technology
  • Prototyping

The knowledge is imparted with a strong application orientation and deepened with project and practical work.

This special knowledge enables graduates to be innovative and thus strengthen the competitiveness of the plastics industry.

* Competences and skills already acquired outside of university as well as existing professional experience can be credited, so that ideally the duration of study is only six semesters!


Applied Polymer Technology is accredited by the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute ACQUIN.

Accreditation certificate


The Bachelor's programme consists of eleven semesters. Due to the competences and skills already acquired outside the university, the business, scientific and personnel management basics of the first three semesters can be credited. As a rule, the practical study semester is also credited by the present professional practice. Ideally, the duration of study should be six semesters (three years).

A description of the individual modules can be found in the module handbook.

Module study

You can also attend courses outside of a classical course of study and continue your education in this way. As part of a module course, you can take individual, selected subjects from the regular range of courses. After successful completion of a module you will receive a certificate. Completed modules can also be credited towards a later course of study. The module study allows prospective students a step-by-step, flexible entry into the study programme or the acquisition of job-relevant academic competences. It is possible to switch from module studies to bachelor studies after each semester.

Target group

The course is primarily aimed at qualified professionals. It offers an innovative form of continuing vocational education tailored specifically to the target group of industrial foremen, technicians, technical business economists or similar occupational groups.

State-certified plastics technician, State-certified mechanical engineering technician, master craftsman for metal, master craftsman for chemistry, master craftsman for paper and plastics, master craftsman for plastics and rubber, master craftsman for mechatronics, master craftsman for electrical engineering, technical business economist, technical specialist.

Teaching methodology and presence phases

The courses take into account the particular situation of working people. They are organised in such a way that they are compatible with full-time employment. Attendance phases are limited to the acceptable minimum. Lectures take place in four blocks per semester (usually Wednesday to Saturday). In addition, the professional activity is integrated into the studies, which results in a high practical relevance. The knowledge gained is put into practice in one's own company, for example in the form of project work.


The lectures take place at the kunststoffcampus bayern in Weißenburg. The Technology and Study Centre Weißenburg is a joint research and educational institution of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and the Deggendorf University of Technology. It also includes leading companies from the region as well as other cooperation partners from the scientific community and trade associations.

Entry requirements

Qualified are persons with a general higher education entrance qualification or a technical college entrance qualification or qualified professionals, i.e. graduates of the master craftsman examination or an equivalent advanced training examination (e.g. industrial foreman) as well as graduates of technical colleges and technical academies (e.g. technicians, technical business economists). In addition, proof of practical activity in a technical field for at least one year or proof of completed vocational training in a plastics technology field is required.

Dates, registration and costs

Registration is possible from 2 May to 15 July. Study begins on 1 October.

Fees are charged at Bavarian universities for extra-occupational studies. These are calculated in such a way that they cover the additional costs resulting from the special form of organisation. The costs per semester amount to 2,400 € tuition fees plus 42 € student union fee.

Lecture plans

The lecture schedules are in German. You can find them on the German page.
