In 2007, the manufacturing sector in Germany accounted for over 20% of the total workforce. Production Engineers are in demand both in the national and the international employment markets. The international orientation of the Production Engineering course is documented by English being firmly anchored in the curriculum over two terms in the first or second term. In addition, students have the possibility to take compulsory course options with an international focus, such as a wide variety of other languages and international exchange programmes, selected from the ”General Studies” catalogue available at various universities. To this purpose, Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences co-operates with universities in France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The International Office provides help and advice for interested students.
