Engineering and Management will be assigned to a newly founded Faculty of Engineering Management in winter term 2019/20. This will not entail considerable changes or effects for students or applicants though.
The programme provides a sound engineering education with modules such as engineering mechanics, material sciences, mechanical design, computer science, mathematics, software development and electrical engineering. Besides, above mentioned job requirements regarding management know-how are met by lectures such as accounting, marketing and controlling. In addition to those competencies, “soft-skills” are trained, e.g. by team projects and student presentations.

The studies also prepare students for international projects and positions. Specific modules such as “intercultural studies”, “selected topics in international management” and a second foreign language are part of the curriculum.
Students gain further international exposure by studying abroad at one of our partner universities. Internships, which are scheduled during the 5th semester, help to gain work experience as well as business contacts which may lead to future employment. Last-but-no-least, lectures are taught in Englisch - the language of international business. While attending lectures taught in the English language, students are encouraged to learn German as their foreign language (courses scheduled during semesters 1, 2 and 3).
Courses include mathematics, physics, mechanical design, materials sciences, engineering mechanics, computer sciences, electrical engineering, software development, power engineering

Previous Education: “allgemeines Abitur”, Spain
I wanted to study in an international environment in which cultural diversity is not only learnt in the lectures, but also experienced at first hand. This expectation was instantly exceeded thanks to a class with people from all over the world. In addition, the Engineering and Management program is very flexible to foment and support exchange semesters in form of courses at partner universities or internships.
I have chosen Engineering and Management because it provides me with the tools required to succeed in today’s global business marketplace. After providing you with a solid base in both engineering and economic subjects, the program enables you to choose out of a broad variety of electives, which let you specialize in your desired field of interest. It encourages you to go overseas and is designed to give you the necessary flexibility for one or even multiple studies abroad. In my opinion this course program has helped me to progress both professionally and personally.
