In today's complex world of work, interdisciplinary and social skills are increasingly in demand. For example, economic and technical know-how is required for many topics. Social skills also play an important role - from working in teams to a later role as a manager.
The practice-integrated industrial engineering course optimally prepares students for these challenges. After completing their studies, the graduates have acquired in-depth technical and business knowledge and the necessary soft skills. In addition, the close interlinking of practical phases in the company and theoretical phases at the university aims to apply and reflect on the skills acquired in a timely manner. Due to the balanced engineering and business management education, the students 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). During the practical phases, the students prepare for the theoretical phases using didactically prepared study letters. The compulsory modules offer a broad education in the fields of engineering, business administration and interdisciplinary qualifications. In three practical modules and as part of the bachelor thesis, the students carry out projects related to operational practice in coordination with the lecturers. In this context, company-specific topics and contents can be deepened in order to prepare the students for the special tasks in operational practice.
A specialization in technology and business administration is possible in various directions. For this purpose, from the third semester onwards, students can choose modules from an elective catalog.
Abitur or advanced technical college entrance qualification or previous education recognized as equivalent and proof of practical work in a company during your studies. An apprenticeship or internship or an employment relationship is required for the practice-integrated course. Evidence of a cooperation agreement with the company must be provided.
Industrial engineers are needed wherever interdisciplinary activities at the interface between technology and business are involved. Due to the broad focus of the course, the professional field is neither limited to certain industries nor to certain positions in the company. Companies of different sizes and from different industries value industrial engineers because of their universal skills. Examples of areas of application are purchasing, planning and control of production or quality management. Very often they also fill positions in technical marketing or sales, because this is where interdisciplinary technical and business qualifications are in demand.
