Something with technology?
Orientation semester (new from summer 2023)

Hochschule Niederrhein. Your way.

Find out what suits you.

You are fascinated by technology, but don't know exactly what you want to study? Our orientation semester helps you decide on the right technical Degree programme. For one semester you will get to know the Faculties of Chemistry, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Mechanical and Process Engineering and Industrial Engineering.

In projects and events you can find out what suits you, what you enjoy and what really excites you. Only then do you decide on one of eight Bachelor's degree programmes. During the semester, you will get to know everyday life at the university and other technology enthusiasts.

The orientation semester begins in the summer semester and precedes the bachelor's program. This allows you to start the Bachelor's degree programme of your choice in the winter semester. The orientation semester enables you to register more regularly, which means that you can apply for BAföG, for example.

Which studies at The Hochschule Niederrhein are right for me?

In order to support you with regard to your choice of studies, we offer you with the HSNR navigators of the Hochschule Niederrhein the possibility to inform yourself comprehensively about individual Bachelor's degree programmes of our university in the run-up to your studies.

Divided into different topic chapters, you will learn details about programme content, study structure and career prospects in the individual fields. In addition, you will have the opportunity to test yourself on study-related tasks and case studies as part of a "SelfAssessment", i.e. a web-based self-test. Take about an hour and find out to what extent you are interested in such questions and can imagine dealing with topics like these in the next years of your studies and professional life!
