Theory and practice - in alternation

This intensive degree course at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences guarantees an exceptionally high quality standard in the conveyance of theoretical knowledge in the frame of lectures, tutorials and during the application and in-depth training during practical study phases at a cooperating company from the aviation industry.

The studies convey basic knowledge in order to be able to enter numerous fields of activities: specialist and methodological knowledge in the field of business administration, scientific work, and the acquisition of action and problem-solving competencies. At the same time a specialization with respect to the aviation industry, its framework conditions and its particular questions with respect to national and international contexts takes place. The theory- and practice phases take place in an alternating manner, a 13-week rhythm.
