Degree course or vocational training? Theory or practice? Everything!

You have your university entrance qualification under your belt and are wondering whether vocational training or a degree course would be right for you. With us, you don't have to choose, do both at the same time.

At DB Systel, you can take a cooperative Bachelor's degree course to simply combine the benefits of both options and look confidently to the future.


Students with a general qualification for university can acquire a degree in the fields of Business Informatics, Computer Science and Digital Media during a three-year cooperative education programme at DB Systel. In a very short time and with a practical, goal-oriented approach, they acquire a university degree with an internationally recognised Bachelor title: Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Engineering. The alternating periods of theory and practice facilitate immediate use of newly acquired knowledge and skills.

The basics: successful completion of (vocational) school education, affinity for the subjects of maths, computer science, physics or business studies as well as technical understanding and a capacity for abstraction. We also expect an independent, structured approach to work as well as open mindedness and team skills. A high level of personal commitment as well as mobility and flexibility are essential prerequisites. A good command of German is required for all three cooperative education programmes and a good command of English is an advantage. Due to our internationalization, it may also be possible to work on international projects.

During the programme we offer attractive salaries, numerous social benefits such as travel discounts and rent subsidy, and support the personal development of our trainees, e.g. in seminars and workshops. We offer successful programme graduates excellent chances of a permanent position and opportunities for further development.
