Economics and Industrial Engineering (German Diplom Degree)

Our course in Economics and Industrial Engineering combines two fundamental economic fields – business and engineering. With this combination you will learn the scientific and methodological basis of all functional areas of economics and engineering. Building on this knowledge in the second part of your studies, you can specialise in selected areas of business studies and engineering. By the end of your degree you’ll speak both languages, that of the business studies graduate and that of the engineer and as a result you will be in great demand by companies in all possible sectors of industry.

Furthermore, there is the opportunity of completing a double degree program at our partner University in China (CDHAW – Tongji University Shanghai) or in Mexico (ITSEM Moneterrey). The double degree program is completely integrated in the Economics and Industrial Engineering curriculum and includes one study semester and one internship semester abroad.
