Cooperative University and FTE automotive - a model for sucess

Study at a cooperative university or technical college is becoming increasingly attractive!

Based on these solid, practical experiences, cooperative university graduates are sought-after employees. 

FTE automotive cooperates with DHBW (Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University). After three years, students achieve a "Bachelor's" degree. If you add on another 2-4 semesters, you can qualify for a "Master's" degree.
