The Master's in Technical Education consists of two study profiles:

Study profile A is primarily intended for students who already have a Bachelor’s degree in technical education or a structurally similar study program and now seek to become vocational school teachers. Still, this degree opens up fields of activity in vocational training in business and vocational education research.

Study profile B is aimed at students who have completed engineering science studies. This qualification profile primarily opens avenues to non-school fields of activity. However, by earning a series of supplementary course credits, the right to enter teacher training (Refendariat) in vocational schools can be gained.
