Business Administration and Engineering

The Business Administration and Engineering degree programme combines business and technical content on an equal footing as an interface discipline. There are five independent specialisations to choose from, ranging from chemistry, electrical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering to environmental and process engineering. The focus of this degree programme is therefore on the interdisciplinarity between economics and engineering and graduates are equally familiar with the mindsets of engineers and business people. Graduates have demonstrated a broad, partially in-depth and integrated knowledge and understanding of the fundamental areas of economics and engineering, which qualifies them for most areas of a company. In addition, graduates should be able to apply this knowledge and understanding to activities in scientific and professional practice and work out and/or further develop solutions to problems at an operational level in their specialist area and justify their own actions on the basis of their mastery of basic scientific working techniques. Graduates should be able to perceive, reflect on and process existing scientific communication and be able to present the results of their analysis process in writing and orally in a manner appropriate to the target group. In addition to the recommended entry into a consecutive Master's programme, the Bachelor's degree primarily qualifies graduates for operational tasks in industry and business. Graduates are usually employed in interdisciplinary technical and economic functions, for example in project management, quality assurance or sales.
