The Applied Science Domain contains nine programmes of which seven programme profiles have been established nationally through cooperation within the domain. The two other programmes are only being offered at one university within the domain. In this case, the programme profile reflects the situation at this individual university.

National programme profiles

A national programme profile shows whether the programme provides training for a specific professional domain, what the minimum attainment target of each competence is in the domain profile and what level of knowledge and basic skills must form the basis of the subject of the programme (Body of Knowledge and Skills, BoKS). Each institution formalises this programme profile in the curriculum for the programme.

You can download the seven nationally agreed programme profiles below. Would you rather have all the programme profiles in one document? Download the full section of the profile description. Download the full section of the profile description

Please note: An addendum for the current profile description was published in January 2018. The English version of this document was published in May 2018. With this document, a new Body of Knowledge and Skills of the Chemical Engineering programme and a new competence profile of Engineering Physics were published. These changes will be incorporated in the next version of the profile description. Untill then you read the profile description and the addendum together.
