Engineering and IT

Programme Overview

On our Engineering and IT Foundation, you will gain a broad understanding of both theoretical and practical concepts in computer science, programming and engineering physics and design in order to successfully develop the analytical, technical and interpersonal skills needed to study an Engineering programme or study an IT degree at the University.

Additionally, there is a key focus on the enhancement of the English language and academic skills, as well as the German language.

Finally, students will undertake modules in research, critical and creative thinking and advanced mathematics to ensure they have the general knowledge and skills suitable for studying at undergraduate level.

The Foundation will be taught at the SRH Heidelberg campus and then you can progress to degree programmes at either the SRH Heidelberg or SRH Berlin campus depending on your degree choice.
