Why wait until after earning your Matura diploma to study? Get ahead in STEM subjects for your studies and the Matura exam while still at school! Academic credit will transfer for courses in the NaSci-Tec program.

The Bachelor's degree program "Fundamentals of Natural Sciences for Technology (NaSci-Tec)" focuses on the basics required for engineering. Offered jointly by departments in chemistry, mathematics and physics, the program provides a base-knowledge understanding in these three particular fields. Choose one of these three subjects and attend the overview lectures in three semesters.

The courses have been designed in close coordination with the curriculum for the Central Matura examination and let you earn university course credit while still in school.

The overview lectures via distance learning have been designed for students in the 11th class and up at AHS or BHS schools, also in remote learning, and can be completed in three semesters. Collaboration within the WPGs is in the planning stages and may be possible after discussions with the respective school. Please ask at your school.
