Smart solutions are in great demand everywhere to keep our world running smoothly. Whether we are talking about complex logistical systems or the challenges of raw material and energy management – these are all tasks performed by industrial engineers.

The course closes the gap between industry and technology and trains managers who consider structures and processes in their entirety and guide various operational forces towards common goals. Industrial engineers are able to develop technical strategies, assess their economic viability, implement them for the company in question and make realistic estimations of the impact of decisions made on the business, its staff and the environment.

  • Final qualification: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
  • Duration: 7 semesters (6 theoretical semesters and 1 practical semester)
  • Dual education: academic studies “with advanced work experience” and combined studies are possible
