To the current courses

As an independent scientific discipline based on vocational pedagogy and educational science, the didactics of electrical, automotive, information, media and metal technology contributes to the professionalization of vocational school teachers and vocational educators working in the domains of vocational education and training. Committed to interdisciplinarity, the department cooperates with relevant engineering sciences, especially in the fields of mechanical, production and electrical engineering, educational science, vocational education and sociology.

The focus of research and teaching is on university training for vocational education activities in school and non-school educational institutions. The subject area of the discipline extends to professional teacher action in educational institutions and thus to teaching, curriculum, school development and vocational education and training research as well as vocational education and training management at the various learning venues of vocational education and training.

Since the introduction of the consecutive study model, the department has been responsible for the bachelor's and master's degree programs with a teaching option for the technical professional fields of metal and electrical engineering in the university training phase. Within the framework of lectures, seminars, projects and the practical semester, students are prepared for their traineeship. For several years now, the department has also been supervising prospective teachers in the vocational fields of automotive, information and media technology as well as students in the lateral entry master's program with the core subjects of electrical or metal technology.
