Do you work and want to expand your career opportunities?
We'll show you the way there.

With the master’s degree in industrial engineering you will achieve the
following goals:

  • Expansion and deepening of technical knowledge as well as business and organizational management skills
  • Recognition, analysis and solution of processes or problems in engineering and mathematical practice
  • Specialization through one of the main areas of production management, sales management or automation technology    
  • Diagnosis and evaluation of interactions between operational functions and the corporate environment
  • Promotion of leadership skills


The four-semester joint industrial engineering course begins in the winter or summer semester and ends with the Master of Engineering. Approx. 70 percent of the course consists of self-study sections and approx. 30 percent of face-to-face events at the university.

The course content, which is the subject of lectures in traditional full-time courses, is conveyed in the combined course via didactically prepared self-study materials (learning letters). In addition, exercises and internships take place at the university, usually on the second Saturday of the semester. Learning takes place in groups of around 25 students.

In addition, courses or examination dates can take place on up to five days of the week per semester (also possible as block courses). In addition, the exchange between students and teachers is supplemented by the internet-based communication platform ILIAS. The degree is completed by the master's thesis and
the colloquium (oral examination).

The qualification with 300 credit points fulfills the formal requirements for a doctorate at all universities.
