The Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State
University (DHBW) is the first university in Ger-
many to integrate academic studies with work-
place training. Founded on 1 March 2009, it is
based on the successful ‘dual learning’ concept
of studies that was pioneered by the Berufs-
akademie (University of Cooperative Education)
in Baden-Wuerttemberg almost 40 years ago.
At its eight locations and four campuses, DHBW
offers nationally and internationally accredited
bachelor degree programmes in the fields of
economics, technology and social studies, in
cooperation with about 9,000 selected com-
panies and social institutions all over Germany.
Recently, the course programme was extended
by master degree programmes as professional
development for students in employment. With
about 31,000 current students and more than
120,000 alumni, DHBW is the biggest university
in the state. DHBW is able to respond to current
and future demand for qualified engineers in
its commitment to electric mobility. The mobil-
ity industry is a leading generator of jobs – in
Germany and other important industrial nations.
Electric drive systems in addition to combustion-
engine-based mobility are a large part of this fu-
ture-oriented industry. Therefore DHBW students
learn about the challenges of electric mobility in
study and research projects. DHBW Mannheim
has set up a laboratory for electric mobility and
starts in the winter semester of 2013/2014 a
course programme with this special focus.
