A Degree Program with a Future

Type of Study

Our degree program is accredited as a full-time degree program. However, course schedules are designed so that students can keep some days free of lectures in order to gain practical experience through a corporate cooperation or complete professional training at the same time.


You will bring one of the following educational backgrounds:

  • General university entrance qualification (Abitur)
  • Specialized university entrance qualification
  • Advanced technical college certificate (Fachhochschulreife)
  • Professional qualification (Case-by-case examination)

6-Week “technical” internship and 6-week “IT” internship Both can be completed by the end of the third semester. This means you do not have to provide proof of a completed internship at the start of the degree program. Relevant training and previous work experience can be credited.

German language level: C1

Acquired Knowledge and Skills

Learn an exciting combination of engineering, IT, digitization, and production technology. 
While the first three semesters will focus on STEM fundamentals, the later semesters address specific issues in product development, such as industrial 3D printing processes and laser technology. 
In addition, it includes content specific to digitization such as programming, databases, data analysis, app development – always with a focus on state-of-the-art content.

Job Profiles

With a degree in digital engineering, you will be in high demand in industry. In particular in production areas, demand for staffing is high as the industry undergoes a digital transformation to become a resource-saving sector. Therefore, your future work in the production industry will be very diverse, either as a technician or as a manager.

Cooperation With Companies

We cooperate with many local and national industrial companies, from theses and study projects to research projects.

Our fields of research

Research in the Department

In the ProErgo – “Ergonomics and industrial engineering” – research area, the goal is to design new technological developments alongside industrial social-technical systems, also called work systems, with an eye towards ergonomic and economic criteria and in consideration of new technological developments.

The overarching goal of the DiMan – “Direct digital manufacturing in the context of Industry 4.0” – research focus area is to ensure digital consistency throughout the entire product creation process, from defining a product to manufacturing to use.

Studying at Innovation Campus Lemgo

Our Innovation Campus in Lemgo

At the Innovation Campus in Lemgo, you will study at one of the most exciting technology locations in NRW. Here you will find state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching rooms as well as science-to-business factories. For example, the Centrum Industrial IT, in which companies from all over East Westphalia-Lippe (OWL) have their branches. Or the Smart Factory OWL, which showcases data and AI management. In the Future Food Factory OWL, which is unique in Europe, something similar is happening in relation to food production. New work and transfer meet at InnovationSPIN. Here, TH OWL, the district administration and the skilled trades demonstrate transparent cooperation and a spirit that allows new things to emerge. In addition to Fraunhofer IOSB-INA, the campus is also home to two vocational schools and the national handball league team TBV Lemgo-Lippe. And best of all, the campus also has student residence halls with short distances to the university and the city.
