Industrial Management focuses on the acquisition of comprehensive economic methods and instruments. The overall economic understanding of the management of technical processes is the focus of this specialization. The focus is on modules in economics, which are accompanied by lectures in mechanical and electrical engineering. The elective area of economics is deliberately broad in scope and open in terms of possible combinations in order to enable you to pursue an individual course of study and an interest-driven education.
Key topics such as accounting and finance, technology and innovation, production and logistics as well as management and organization, which result from the module combination of different subjects, complement the technical knowledge and skills in an optimal way and qualify you in particular for taking over interface functions in the industrial sector. Possible fields of activity range from controlling (e.g. at energy supply companies), to operational innovation management (e.g. in the automotive industry), to (technical) sales. Students can take on more commercial tasks in marketing, consulting, human resources as well as seek employment in the engineering sector with sound commercial knowledge.
The compulsory and elective modules can be found in the Module Handbook Bachelor in Industrial Engineering of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
The modules from the field of economics can be found in the module handbook of the Department of Economics.
