Practical days

Practical days are "hands-on days" - take advantage of the opportunity to get to know companies and make valuable contacts for your career.

An opportunity for students!
As a student you will have additional opportunities to get to know many companies, to build up your personal network and gain further insight into practice. A varied programme is on offer through the collaboration with companies.

The opportunities offered by companies are manifold:

  • Look over the shoulder of an engineer or computer scientist during the working day.
  • Let yourself be guided through the company and then talk to company representatives about the possibilities of a professional career.
  • Deepen your knowledge of the industry by attending lectures given by the companies.

Use the practical days for your career!

Build up your own company network and make suitable contacts for your practical semester, your bachelor or master thesis or get to know potential employers!
Don't hesitate, secure your place early. As soon as registration is possible, students of Ansbach University will receive an information mail. Registration takes place directly with the companies.
The current catalogue with company offers will be available here from the beginning of 2018.

*Legal information on visiting and participating in practical days in companies:
Visits to and activities in companies within the framework of or in connection with the practical days are exclusively on a voluntary basis based on the sole decision of the participants; they are not teaching or study events and are not any other university events of your faculty or the university as a whole.
The university is not involved in or responsible for the agreement, implementation or other handling of such visits or activities.
We would therefore like to draw your attention to the fact that only you, yourself, as a participant, have to bear the risk of an accident which exists or arises as a result of or in connection with your voluntary visits to or activities in companies within the framework of the practical days, or must personally provide sufficient private insurance cover.

Benefit as a company

The practical days also bring many advantages to you as a company:

  • Your direct commitment to your target group will strengthen your employer image.
  • You make direct contact with the employees and managers of tomorrow.
  • Career Services takes care of the organisation, you simply receive the student registrations and organise your practical day at your convenience.
  • Participation is free of charge.

What the practical days are, how they benefit you and how we advertise the practical days can be found in the >> project description (German) <<.

 

Who organizes the practice days for you?

The practice days are the product of the union of the Career service of 13 Bavarian universities, university Ansbach, OTH Amberg-Weiden, Augsburg, Coburg, yard, Evang. university Nuremberg, Kempten, Landshut, Munich, OTH Regensburg, rose home, peppering castle pig ford and the TH Nuremberg.
Together with companies, interactive days for students are organised, which take place directly in the company and can therefore be carried out very close to the company. Students can get to know twelve companies in twelve days.

Review of past events

Try Studying - Trial Study Day on 8 March 2016
The course of studies "Applied Engineering Sciences" has invited pupils of the upper secondary school to get a taste of lecture hall air at the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences. A total of 47 pupils from the three Ansbach grammar schools will experience the lecture atmosphere in the lecture hall for the first time on this day. Since, in contrast to universities of applied sciences, the practical part of an engineering degree course is very high, the students can give a lecture on the study course and university, carry out experiments on photovoltaics (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg Rosenbauer) and physics (Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Torsten Schmidt), get to know working with a scanning electron microscope (Prof. Dr. Hans-Achim Reimann) and attend a project seminar on wind energy (Prof. M.Sc. Stefan Weiherer).   From the point of view of Prof. Dr. Astrid von Blumenthal and her colleagues with their research teams, this taster study day is an ideal opportunity for young people to focus on the practice-oriented degree course "Applied Engineering Sciences" and the attractive professional field of an engineer.
