As an industrial engineer, you combine expertise from two fields: economics as well as technology. You can solve technical issues with business expertise, think beyond individual departments and coordinate different interests. The study programme is interdisciplinary, combining technical and natural scientific, mathematical and analytical as well as economic and social-scientific contents and competences. This interdisciplinary training enables you to work on technical as well as economic or interdisciplinary tasks.
The three-semester master’s programme focuses especially on management competences and production engineering issues. It builds on the engineering basis from the bachelor's programmes of the faculty and expands your knowledge in comprehensive technological and management competences. These competences qualify you to manage and lead teams.
As the word ‘international’ in the name of the programme already indicates, the programme prepares you for issues in globally active corporations. As a unique feature, the innovative management methods of lifecycle and services management, technical sales, quality management as well as innovation and technology management form part of the syllabus. Scientific, practically orientated project work introduces you to the requirements of state-of-the-art international research structures. As a graduate, you are, thus, qualified to work in research centres or continue with doctoral studies. In the context of the course Engineering Conferences, you present research projects in English on an international in-house conference.
Depending on your bachelor’s degree, you can choose between up to three specialisations: production and innovation, energy and environmental or environmental and process technology.
Please note: The language of instruction is partly English, partly German.
