Why do we study civil engineering

All courses from A-Z

Bachelor of Education + Master of Education -> teacher training at vocational schools

The study of teaching at vocational schools at TU Darmstadt consists of two interconnected courses of study:

  • first the course Bachelor of Education (6 semesters; professional subject), and
  • after that the course Master of Education (4 semesters; general education subject / specialist science).
  • Methodology / didactics and Practical phases complement the technical content of the subjects.

First graduation from Bachelor of Education and Master of Education is equivalent to the First State Examination in Hesse and is therefore an obligatory requirement for acceptance into preparatory service (legal clerkship) or school service.

Teachers in the wide-ranging vocational school system give general, theoretical and practical lessons. An interest in educational work with children and adolescents and a joy in teaching are prerequisites for studying and working. For this, teachers need extensive specialist knowledge as well as pedagogical-didactic, psychological, communicative and social skills. In addition to the work in school, the quality of the lessons depends crucially on the preparation. This is very time-consuming and takes place primarily at your desk at home.

Civil engineering deals with the technical-constructive aspects of civil engineering. In general, it is about techniques as well as the material and equipment that are used in the construction process. Since the technical part is borne by the architecture department, questions of design and design play a central role.

Anyone who opts for the Bachelor of Education - Commercial-Technical Education - Structural Engineering course needs an affinity for mathematical and scientific tasks. Skills such as spatial thinking or artistic and creative talent facilitate the course of studies. It is also helpful if prospective students are familiar with the technical basics of building before starting their studies.

The Center for Teacher Education conducts special aptitude advice for the teacher training course.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Education degree program - there are employment opportunities in vocational educational institutions in the economy, in the field of vocational training sciences or on the open labor market.

Entry into the preparatory service (legal clerkship) for a teaching position at a vocational school, a vocational high school, a technical school, a technical college, a vocational school as well as in classes of the basic vocational training year and the vocational preparation year is only open to them after completing a postgraduate course Master of Education.

It is difficult to make predictions about the future demand for teachers and their chances of being hired in the school service, as they depend on a large number of different factors. This includes, for example, demographic development, the chosen combination of subjects or type of school, political framework conditions and more.
