In cooperation with the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences, BST offers majors in the areas of Electronics Engineering, Mechatronics, and Computer Engineering. In these dual study programs, higher education and career training takes place at the same time.
The basic principle behind dual (cooperative) courses of study is as follows: Students attend classes in their respective majors four days a week. They work at the cooperating company on the fifth day of the week and during breaks. A training contract is also signed, which leads to a trade proficiency or journeyman’s certificate. Over the course of the degree program, the students are increasingly involved in projects in the company.
Requirements: General higher education entrance qualification, Abitur [German advanced secondary school leaving certificate], or similar
Training sites for the BST dual course of study: Bielefeld Altenhagen and Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences

A dual course of study according to the Lippe model has two special benefits:
1. With the introduction of the bachelor’s degree, the standard period of study in the dual course of study is only six semesters (plus one year of specialist or journeyman training up front in the business), so it is not longer than a conventional bachelor’s degree program at a university of applied sciences.
2. Students in this program study together with fellow students that are completing their studies without the professional experience component.
