BST – the start for your career

 

 

Training

Would you like to complete an apprenticeship with maximum practical relevance and promising prospects for the future? Are you looking for a training company that is internationally successful and versatile? Then BST is the right place for you.

In Germany, at our headquarters in Bielefeld Altenhagen, we have been training committed young professionals with an interest in technology in various apprenticeships for many years.

In cooperation with the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences, we offer dual study programs in electrical engineering, mechatronics and computer engineering. 

Dual studies - what is it?

The basic idea behind dual studies is to integrate university studies and practical work in a company right from the start. This is made possible by limiting all courses at the university to four days a week during the lecture period. On the fifth day of the week and during the lecture-free period, students work in the company. In the course of their studies, students are increasingly involved in company projects.

Two different study models are available at BST

Apprenticeship-integrated model

In the apprenticeship-integrated model, an apprenticeship contract is also concluded, leading to a skilled worker's or journeyman's certificate. The first year is completed as an upstream in-company training period, before the bachelor's degree course is completed from the second year onwards in parallel with the skilled worker/journeyman training. The training period is generally 4 years in total.

Practice-integrated model

The practice-integrated model begins immediately with the bachelor's degree. The training period is usually 3 years, as for a conventional bachelor's degree. Here, too, practical work in the company is completed in parallel from the very beginning.  

Prerequisites
High school diploma or comparable degree 

Training locations
BST GmbH, Bielefeld-Altenhagen, and Ostwestfalen-Lippe Technical University, Lemgo.

Dual studies - your advantages

1

Students in the dual study program study together with their fellow students, who complete their studies without accompanying practical work units.

2

The standard period of study in the practice-integrated dual study program is no longer than that of a conventional bachelor's degree program. The apprenticeship-integrated study program offers the skilled worker's or journeyman's certificate as an additional degree.

3

Valuable practical experience can already be gained during the course of study and a training allowance is already paid during the course of study in both study models.
