In the industrial engineering course, business and interdisciplinary modules complement the technical aspects of the course. Industrial engineers with practical training are particularly suitable for interdisciplinary activities at the interface between technology and business administration. Due to the balanced engineering and business management training, they are able to assess, organize and optimize company processes economically and technically.
In the practice-integrated bachelor's degree in industrial engineering, practical phases in the company (eleven weeks) alternate with theoretical phases at the university (twelve weeks).
The students prepare themselves for the theoretical phases during the practical phases using didactically prepared self-study materials. The compulsory modules offer a broad education in engineering (50%), business administration (27%) and interdisciplinary qualifications (23%). 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 use an elective catalog to individualize their competence profile in the fields of automation, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.
* Elective modules:
• Digital technology
• Documentation of mechatronic systems
• Electrical machines
• Production technology
• Semiconductor components and circuits
• Industrial communication
• Power electronics
• Measuring systems and sensors
• Methodical design and CAD
• Microcontroller programming
• Process engineering
• Materials engineering
Abitur or advanced technical college entrance qualification or previous education recognized as equivalent. For the practice-integrated course, evidence of an apprenticeship or internship or an employment relationship with a cooperating company is required.
Industrial engineers are needed wherever interdisciplinary activities at the interface between technology and business administration are involved. Due to the universal orientation of the course, various fields of activity can be taken on in many industries. Small and medium-sized companies also value industrial engineers because of their diverse skills. The main areas of application are purchasing, production planning, quality and project management as well as technical sales. Often they also fill positions in marketing, finance and controlling, because interdisciplinary technical and business qualifications are in demand there.
