Studieren im Praxisverbund ("Studying in a Practice Network")

For students, the Faculty WIAI offers the program "Studieren im Praxisverbund". Selected students (Bachelor or Master) enter into a partnership with a company.

The company supports the student with at least 500 Euros per semester for a maximum of 7 semesters. In return, the student undertakes to complete two separately remunerated internships in the partner company during this period.

In this way, students have the opportunity to gain an early insight into the practice and companies and students can be bound early if they fit well.

Career Day WIAI

Every summer semester, the faculty WIAI organizes an IT-related career day. The students of the faculty WIAI have the opportunity to get to know IT companies from the region, but also internationally operating companies.

As an exhibitor, you have the opportunity to reserve a space for your booth in order to present your company to the students as a potential employer.

In addition, you can offer a workshop in which students can learn more about the processes involved in an application, for example.

Workshops for pupils

In order to attract more students, the WIAI Faculty has been offering regular workshops for pupils of different age groups since 2005.

The programs are very popular and have helped more than 600 students to discover their talents for computer science:

  • BIT – Bamberger Informatik Tag: A whole day full of workshops to inform and try out for pupils from elementary school to high school
  • MUT – Mädchen und Technik: Workshops especially for girls of all school types from 10-14 years
  • Girls'Day: Workshops especially for girls of secondary schools from grade 8
  • I4Kids: Workshops for pre-school and primary school children
  • make IT: Pupils of Q11 experience computer science courses at the Faculty WIAI supported by student mentors

The faculty does not have a budget available for the application and implementation of the different workshops. The supervision of the workshops is carried out on an honorary basis by the scientific staff of the Faculty WIAI.

In order to be able to continue the program to the usual extent and quality, the faculty is dependent on additional donations and sponsors. Of course, the supporting companies are mentioned on all advertising material of the workshops.
