The Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences offers a total of 17 bachelor programmes at the faculties of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Business Law and Business and Economics.
Business Administration (B.A.)
Our business administration programme contains all relevant theoretical knowledge and still keeps its practice-oriented focus. Building on 15 compulsory subjects, there are broad elective options, e.g. in the areas of management accounting, marketing, taxes and balance sheets or tourism management. Depending on your personal area of interest, you can qualify in more depth in the various specialisations. An internship semester completes the business administration programme.
The Business Psychology programme comprises the central methods and findings of psychology, their practical applications, and the basics of general economics. The interplay of scientific rigour and practical experience makes for fascinating and future-oriented studies.
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (B.Sc.)
These bachelor studies are very practice-oriented and offer five future-related specialisation subjects: automation technology, embedded systems, electrical engineering, vehicle electronics and information technology. You will be trained in the fields of mathematics, physics, computer science, electrical engineering and communication technology.
HealthTech – Smart Assistance Systems in the Healthcare Sector (B.Sc.)
These bachelor studies will qualify you for developing and faultlessly operating assistance systems in the areas of healthcare, medical science and nursing. These practice-oriented studies will provide you with both medical-technical and healthcare-related skills.
These bachelor studies address the different task fields of informatics such as process structuring, system architecture, network building, hardware and software development and implementation as well as the economic and ergonomic design of application systems.
In the six-semester programme IBE, the business studies programme is specialised in international aspects. Students are prepared for their career entry by acquiring intersectoral competencies for management positions in internationally operating companies, associations and organisations. The entire programme can be completed in English. The integrated semester abroad at one of our more than 70 partner universities enables students to get to know other cultures and behavioural patterns in management.
This course of studies addresses students who are especially interested in a career with an international focus. You will start by acquiring basic knowledge in the fields of business law and economics. With targeted programmes you will expand your English language skills. By selecting elective-compulsory modules and focus areas you will be able to tailor your academic studies to your preferences.
Mechanical Engineering is the classic within the technical studies: rich in tradition and at the same time innovative and future-proof. The standard study period is seven semesters. Upon successful completion of the course you may use the professional title “engineer”. A previous four-week internship in a company is required for admission to study.
These Bachelor studies will provide you with specific skills on digital marketing. Starting with the basics of economics and programming you will then focus in more detail on media design, on-line marketing (e.g. SEO, social-media marketing) and current marketing issues.
The fundamentals of economics are the focus of this course of study. You will learn about the functioning of markets on a microeconomic level as well as the macroeconomic relationships of economic cycles of entire national economies. In addition to the teaching of the relevant economic models, a special focus of the course is on the development of economic policy recommendations, for example in such important areas as environmental or health policy, but also trade or monetary policy.
Business Informatics builds on the findings of informatics and links them to the requirements of the economy. You will learn about information and communication systems that are used to support business processes and decision making in organisations as well as in public administration.
The main focus of these Bachelor studies is on practice-oriented legal training, attaching special emphasis on a close link to economic issues. Furthermore, you will acquire key qualifications such as foreign languages, IT skills and social competence, in particular consideration of gender-specific aspects.
The degree programme in Economics comprises both business administration contents (economic processes at the company level, such as procurement and production) and macroeconomic contents (individual or overall economic contexts, such as pricing or labour market policy), in order to understand and evaluate economic contexts holistically. In just six semesters, you will gain a comprehensive perspective on business administration and economics and their interconnections, for example in current issues of the digitalisation of the economy.
