DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Due to the rapid technological development and the social and economic changes going hand in hand with it, companies are constantly faced with new challenges. An increasing technical specialization on the one hand and the globalization and digitalization of economic processes on the other, change the requirements for coordination and cooperation within a company, but also across company borders. It leads to a considerable demand for specialists and managers who are familiar with thinking and acting in complex interrelations and who have the competence and flexibility to react appropriately to constantly changing circumstances. The profile of industrial engineers meets these requirements by combining technical expertise with economic judgment and adequate personal skills.

The interdisciplinary bachelor program „Industrial Engineering and Management - Production Engineering“ conveys knowledge of business administration and production technology as well as diverse specialist and methodological skills. The combination of elements from the classic subjects of business administration and mechanical engineering (production engineering) enables students to understand not only the business side of products, processes and companies, but also the technical background and dependencies. By working in interdisciplinary projects and project groups, students are also trained in practical methodological and personal skills.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Industrial engineers often work in

  • Project management,
  • Product planning and development
  • Production planning and control
  • Pocurement and production logistics
  • Distribution and financial controlling in machine and plant manufacture,

They find jobs for example in

  • the automobile industry,
  • space and aviation industry,
  • foodstuffs and luxury goods industry,
  • steel industry and testing facilities.

Interesting occupations are also to be found in the areas of business consultancy as well as service and trading companies.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program in the disciplines:

  • Master of Science Production Engineering
  • Master of Science Process-oriented materials research (ProMat)
  • Master of Science Space Engineering
  • Master of Science Engineering and Management
