The students in the Digital Logistics course are prepared to understand and control the complex relationships in practice. They should be able to design and optimize the material flows and information processes in the company and, in particular, through the use of digital technologies, to ensure that the right amount of the required items is available at the desired time in the required quality.


In the practice-integrated Bachelor's degree in Digital Logistics, practical phases in the company (eleven weeks) alternate with theoretical phases at the university (twelve weeks). The students prepare for the theory phases during the practical phases using didactically prepared self-study materials. The compulsory modules offer a broad education in engineering, computer science, business administration and interdisciplinary qualifications. In three practical modules and as part of the bachelor thesis, the students carry out practical projects. In this context, company-specific topics and contents can be deepened in order to prepare the students for the special tasks in operational practice.

In the fifth and sixth semesters, students have the opportunity to individualize their skills profile using an elective catalog from digital logistics.

Logistics forms the backbone of every industrial company. Production can only take place as planned if all raw materials, individual parts, order information, manufacturing instructions, etc. are available. The distribution of the goods produced also requires high-performance logistics. It is the key to delivering products to customers on time and with minimal transport costs. In addition to the physical transport processes, the information flows along the value chain are becoming increasingly important. For example, the traceability of individual parts and products for quality purposes as well as the coordination of transport and production quantities to optimize the utilization of production facilities and means of transport are tasks of logistics.

There is a need for graduates of the degree program in every major industrial company in areas that design and optimize value-added processes as well as in management positions in production and logistics.
