The digital transformation in industry (Industry 4.0) is changing production processes and requires new skills from future engineers. They have to design production systems as well as understand, navigate and interpret data flows. The Digitization Engineering degree program accompanies you professionally on this path.
The degree program imparts in-depth knowledge of modern production systems paired with special content of production-related digitization. Substantial engineering and digitization-specific teaching content forms the basis for this. The degree program enables you to use basic manufacturing processes in modern production environments as well as to design the data-based networking of production in a manufacturing-related manner.
If the mix of practical technology and applied digitization appeals to you and you expect versatile job prospects from your bachelor's degree, then this is the right degree program for you!
Graduates in Digitization Engineering are in demand from industry. Particularly in the manufacturing sectors, the need for personnel to shape the digital transformation in the context of Industry 4.0 is high. Your future field of work can therefore be very diverse. After successful completion of the degree program, you will be qualified, among other things, for a career as:
- Specialist or manager in the manufacturing industry
- Project engineer digitization/Industry 4.0
- Production management
- IT specialist for production

For a study start in the winter semester 2021/2022:
- 15 April 2021 to 15 August 2021
The structure of the Digitization Engineering program follows a well-established basic concept: In the first three semesters, you will learn the essential fundamentals of the natural sciences, computer science, and selected engineering disciplines such as manufacturing technology. The higher semesters are then dedicated to the special topics of product creation such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), laser processing and product lifecycle management.
Alongside this, digitization-specific content such as the storage and analysis of production data and app development is taught in each semester. IT systems and software programs that are based on the current industrial standard are always applied. As a result, in addition to the theoretical fundamentals, you will acquire the practical skills to actively drive forward the digital transformation in the manufacturing industry and to shape it in a way that is adapted to the needs and circumstances in the companies.
Simultaneously, you will develop targeted non-technical skills such as working in teams or the confident use of the English language.
