Information Systems sandwich degree course
Bachelor of Science in Information Systems + practical on-the-job training in just 7 semesters
The full-time sandwich degree course in Information Systems at AKQUINET and the Institute of Software Technology and Outsourcing at Wedel University of Applied Sciences is the perfect training for a confident entry into the working world of IT. You combine study, training and practical work and achieve within 7 semesters a Bachelor of Science degree with vocational experience.
During the time when you have no lectures, you gain additional training at the Institute, which builds on what you learned at the University and prepares you for working on projects and in your future workplace. For all successfully completed courses you receive from us a meaningful certificate.
As part of your training at the Institute, you can also pick a specialist subject of interest to you and you will then receive the appropriate training:
- Specialist subject - Software projects: IPMA project management level D certification
- Specialist subject - Data centre technology: ITIL certification
AKQUINET covers all course fees incurred at FH Wedel (Wedel University of Applied Sciences). You also receive a training salary, a public transport travel card (HVV-ProfiCard) and a complete set of computer equipment - for both course and also private use.
You will become part of the student community within the company. You can discuss lectures, exercises or any aspect of course life with your fellow students and find tips for completing the course successfully.
The sandwich course starts each year at the beginning of the winter semester in October. The first semester includes day-release at the company, when you spend days rotating between departments. You are able to familiarise yourself with akquinet's different areas of IT and to find out which speciality suits you best.
Over the following semesters, you work actively with others on projects tailored to your interests or take these on autonomously in the company you select. You are thus able to directly apply the theoretical knowledge learned at the University. This cements your knowledge!
In the sixth semester, you spend all of your time at the company, working on larger projects and writing a major paper on that work. During that semester, you do not do any other written tests at FH Wedel.
You spend the final seventh semester at the company as well. Here, with our support, you write your thesis on a current, relevant topic and subsequently gain the title of Bachelor of Science.
