Study overview

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

Engineering and business fundamentals are supplemented with modules for personal development and specialised modules relevant to the field of plastics.

  • Process control
  • Simulation technology
  • Surface technology
  • Prototyping

The course focuses on the practical application of knowledge, consolidated and reinforced through project work and practical assignments.

With this specialist knowledge, graduates will be able to work innovatively and thus strengthen the competitiveness of the plastics industry.

* Expertise and skills acquired outside of university including current professional experience may be accredited, making it possible to complete the course in just 6 semesters.

Accreditation

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

Accreditation certificate

Content

The Bachelor's programme consists of eleven semesters. However, the first three semesters, which cover the basics of business, scientific and human resources management, may be credited due to competences and skills already acquired outside of the university. Likewise, the practical study semester is usually also credited based on existing 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 subsequent course of study. The modular study programme can provide prospective students with a gradual, flexible introduction to a study programme or allow them to acquire professionally relevant academic skills. It is possible to switch from module studies to bachelor studies after each semester.

Dates winter semester 2020/2021

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 professional groups.

Examples:
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 are designed to accommodate the specific needs of working people. They are organised in such a way as to be compatible with full-time employment. Periods of attendance are limited to an acceptable minimum. Lectures take place in four blocks per semester (usually Wednesday to Saturday). In addition, professional practice is integrated into the course, which results in a high level of practical relevance. The knowledge gained is put into practice in students’ own companies, for example in the form of project work.

Campus

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

Entry requirements

Eligible applicants include those 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 Fees

Winter semester: Registration is from 2 May to 15 July. Courses begin on 1 October.

Fees are charged at Bavarian universities for extra-occupational studies. These are calculated to cover the additional costs arising from the specific form of organisation. The costs per semester are 2,400 € tuition fees plus 52 € student union fee.

Lecture plans

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