Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)

Industrial engineering

As an interdisciplinary degree program, the program in Industrial Engineering combines engineering and business administration subject matters.

Industrial engineers are sought-after professionals primarily working in industrial companies. They are qualified for technical and management positions in production departments and adjacent areas such as work preparation, quality management, production controlling, logistics or industrial engineering. Furthermore, they also work in project and product management, technical sales or purchasing. Laboratory courses, business simulation games, ongoing case studies and excursions ensure the program takes a practical approach.


Graduates will primarily be qualified for careers in the manufacturing industry. They will take on responsibility in the following ares: Production, logistics, production controlling, project management, work preparation, production planning, quality management or technical sales.

Industrial engineers are able to take technical, organizational, logistics and business administration aspects into account in a holistic way, making them highly qualified to take over management responsibilities in different companies.
