As an interdisciplinary degree program, the Industrial Engineering and Management program combines engineering and business content.
Industrial engineers are in-demand specialists who work predominantly in industrial companies. They take on specialist and management tasks in production and production-related areas such as work scheduling, quality management, production controlling, logistics or industrial engineering. They also work in project and product management, technical sales or procurement. The degree program is characterized by a high degree of practical orientation. This is ensured through laboratory internships, simulation games, continuous case studies and specialized lectures.
Graduates are offered excellent career prospects in manufacturing companies. They assume responsibility in various areas: production, logistics, production controlling, project management, work scheduling, production planning, quality management, procurement or technical sales.
The ability of industrial engineers to take equal account of technical, organizational, logistical and business aspects makes them ideally suited to take on management tasks in companies.
Subject-related Certificate of Higher Education Entrance Qualification (Fachabitur) / General Certificate of Higher Education Entrance Qualification (Abitur) or a qualification recognized as equivalent (master craftsman).
Six-week internship each in "Business" and "Engineering", which can be completed by the end of the 3rd semester.
