Academic degrees

As part of the University of Koblenz, we serve a wide range of research and teaching programmes at the Metternich campus under the umbrella term "Material & Environment".

We offer courses and opportunities for degrees along the entire education chain and publish scientific papers in recognised peer-reviewed journals.

One focus of our range of study programmes is teacher training for primary schools, Realschule plus, Gymnasium and vocational schools, in which we offer the subjects, disciplines including biology, chemistry, geography, physics, sport and mathematics. For subjects related to teaching, the Bachelor's degree and subsequent Master of Education degrees can be obtained in any combination with the second subject and educational sciences.

The disciplinary study programmes usually lead to Bachelor and Master of Science degrees. In cooperation with the university, a degree with an engineering specialisation is also possible.

These have a proven research focus on chemical-physical (e.g. material properties), mathematical (e.g. models, simulations, optimisation processes) and bio-geoscientific issues (e.g. biodiversity & ecosystems). In the context of knowledge and technology transfer, there are established networks with regional and international partners that enable research and final theses to be carried out directly in a company.

At the same time, an international offering in research and teaching via the university partnerships or the Rwanda Centre for African Cooperation located on campus provides a view of the world. In the area of further and adult education, distance education programmes related to the environment and energy management are offered through the university's Centre for Distance Studies and Continuing Education.

With a degree from a Master's degree programme, you will generally be eligible for admission to a doctorate, which you can achieve through supervision in our faculty, for example.

In addition, you can pursue an academic career after completing your doctorate.
