Technology drives our progress, innovations shape our future. But ideas and ever more intelligent technical solutions also have to be implemented in ever shorter time frames and under increasing cost pressure. Technical knowledge alone is then no longer enough - economic thinking must be added. After all, innovations only succeed if they are produced cost-effectively and successfully brought to market. This means that engineers and business economists must work hand in hand. Industrial engineers support them in this. They find solutions across departmental boundaries, with engineering expertise and business management competence.

The Industrial Engineering degree program is characterized by a generalist and interdisciplinary education, in both technical and business subjects. This opens up a wide range of fields of application for you in almost all areas of the company - especially in areas where technology and business meet.
