What is it?
In this degree program, students acquire the theoretical and practical fundamental knowledge required for a qualified position in an international company operating in so-called interface fields between technology and economics.
Students will acquire the ability to familiarize themselves with new areas of responsibility within a reasonable period of time and to be able to adapt to constantly changing requirements. In addition, they will learn to solve problems in an interdisciplinary way, to translate knowledge into sustainable solutions and to use their social skills to win over other people to participate in these solutions.
What can I do with it?
Graduates of this degree program are at a particular advantage compared to graduates of purely technical degree programs in sectors and situations in which not only technical knowledge, but also contextual knowledge is required, i.e. knowledge about the environment of technical applications. They are at an advantage compared to graduates of a business administration degree program if business administration know-how needs to be supplemented by technical knowledge. In practice, industrial engineers are therefore often found in positions where work is carried out on an interdisciplinary basis. Typical occupational fields are:
- the mobility sector,
- the healthcare sector,
- the communications industry,
- maintenance and service,
- building and waste management,
- industrial services which also provide services.
Graduates will typically work in the areas of procurement, project and quality management, sales, organization and controlling.

The program is divided into a first segment of four semesters with a prescribed curriculum and set courses and a second three-semester segment. In the second segment, students can choose three modules to create emphases in areas of their own interest, and they also do their internship and write their bachelor's thesis as part of this segment. This is complemented by project work in the sixth semester.
