Interest in technical scientific processes and their business/economic contexts is ideal for this course. You should be open to the use of computer tools, for example to develop and simulate technical and business models in order to create forecasts for the real world.
The Faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering is particularly interested in encouraging students from general and vocational colleges to study engineering. Economy and science depend on tapping into the talents and skills of young women. Social skills, versatility and communication skills are particularly important for the Mechanical Engineering - Management course, in addition to technical and analytical strengths.

Course content

This interdisciplinary course imparts engineering, mathematical, socioscientific, economic and IT knowledge, so that students are able to model, simulate and design systems from different perspectives. To be able to meet variable requirements, industrial engineers must have hands-on professional scientific knowledge and methodological skills. On the one hand, the design, optimisation and implementation of operational processes in terms of business production of goods and services are required; on the other, monitoring by a qualified individual of the constantly changing competitive environment, particularly the technology-dominated markets, is needed to identify new challenges early and use them for a company's benefit.
