Can a single degree programme manage to roll technological advances, economic growth and social transformation into one? Industrial Engineering – Mechanical Engineering certainly can. Besides acquiring precise specialist knowledge, you will learn to identify how things fit together overall, act flexibly and work effectively with other people.

What’s unusual about industrial engineers? They aren’t fixated purely on either technological progress, economic growth, or social change, but rather – thanks to being an all-rounder – observe the continuous interplay between all three dynamics.

Work as an industrial engineer in the field of mechanical engineering means interlinking technical, business, social and international tasks. It is therefore essential to understand the full picture of structures and processes to act with appropriate circumspection. And that’s exactly what this degree programme hones in on. Throughout your studies, we support you with tutorials, small learning groups, special programmes for students and intensive mentoring for internships and bachelor theses. We offer a preliminary maths course especially for students in the first semester of technical bachelor’s degree programmes.

In addition, you can expect practically relevant teamwork and learning, a friendly atmosphere and professors who care about your wellbeing.

You can only apply to join a bachelor’s degree programme in Summer Semester 2023 if you will be entering a higher semester:

Details about this course

On the foundation course (1st and 2nd semester), you will learn all the important fundamental principles in the relevant fields of science, technology and business.

During the advanced course (3rd to 7th semester), you will expand upon your core knowledge and hone it with more application-related and professionally relevant aspects – including integrative subjects, language courses and training in giving presentations.

During the sixth and seventh semesters, you can tailor your specialist studies by choosing from a wide range of elective modules including product management, sales, logistics, quality management, vehicle engineering, energy and environmental technology, Industry 4.0 and data science.

During your practical semester (5th), you will gain experience in a company, happily abroad, if you wish,

before completing your degree by writing your bachelor’s thesis. The tasks addressed frequently stem from companies, which gives you another chance to forge contacts with potential employers. You can also complete your final thesis abroad if you prefer.

Upon successfully completing the programme, the university of applied sciences will award you the academic degree of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) .

Professional environment:

A key distinguishing feature of the career profile for Industrial Engineering is interlinking technical, business and social tasks. Many specific roles are directly linked to companies’ customers, e.g. in product management, sales and service, while others involve fulfilling customers’ orders, e.g. planning projects, procurement / logistics for materials, production planning/control, logistics, and quality management. Others lay the groundwork for successful business activity, such as in business development and planning, innovation and technology management, or factory planning.


Career prospects:

Most of our graduates to date have enjoyed an excellent start to their career. Projected demand and the growing importance of interdisciplinary mindsets and action coupled with an understanding of international correlations indicate outstanding career prospects once you graduate.

The traditionally typical destinations for Industrial Engineering graduates are automotive construction or mechanical and plant engineering. However, the mixture of technical and non-technical subjects that we cover on this programme opens up an incredibly wide range of additional appealing options for you.


Fields of activity:

  • Aerospace
  • Mechanical and plant engineering
  • Information and communication technology
  • Medical technology
  • logistics
  • Service providers
  • Research and development
