Compulsory practical training

According to the curriculum for the bachelor's programme in polymer engineering, you have to complete a compulsory practical training of 80 working days.

You can find the provisions that apply to the compulsory practice in the corresponding curriculum. The practical training can be divided into several blocks (each with a minimum of 20 working days) and can thus also be completed in parts during lecture-free periods. After the blocks of practical training, you must submit the completed and signed practice form and job description. Explainations on how to fill out the form and a mock-up of the job description can be found under the link for the practice form. Submit the originals and the job description to Programme Director. Submit the originals to the KKV Office during office hours. The practice form and the activity report as well as explanations for filling out the forms can be found below under Downloads


What you need to keep in mind:

  • Practical training is scheduled for the 7th semester of the Bachelor's degree. The aim is to apply and implement the knowledge acquired in the course of study in practice - accordingly, in the interest of the students, we recommend starting the practical training at the earliest after the first two semesters of study (better from the 5th semester). In principle, however, it is also possible to complete the practical training earlier, from the beginning of the degree programme.

  • The activities carried out in practice must be clearly related to plastics technology and assigned to one of the focal points listed in the curriculum for each practical block.

  • You can clarify any uncertainties regarding the creditability of a planned practical activity in advance with the study programme representative (by e-mail with - as far as possible - a pre-filled practical form).

Note for students who are still studying according to study plan 14U: Please contact the KKV Office for the correct practice form.
