The bachelor's degree alt = "Industrial engineering can be completed as a face-to-face course in Bad Sooden-Allendorf, as a distance learning course with face-to-face events at selected study centers or as a virtual distance learning course with online lectures and exams at all DIPLOMA study centers in Germany. Visit us in the" Virtual Trial events technology ”, which are regularly offered.

The standard period of study for the course old = "Industrial engineering in distance learning is 7 semesters and in semester study 6 semesters . Completed studies entitle to a subsequent master's degree in engineering or economics, for example to continue the course with the consecutive Master of Arts (MA) Economics and law - focus on management or the master's degree MBA at DIPLOMA University.

Contents of the course alt = "industrial engineering

The bachelor's degree course alt = "Industrial engineering conveys operational and legal science as well as natural and engineering science content. The focus of the course is in particular to rethink conventional mechanical engineering and electrotechnical solutions and to plan and use less complex, usually cheaper combination solutions of mechanical engineering and electrotechnical components. The industrial engineer thus bridges the gap between economic and technical ways of thinking and designs, plans and organizes the work and business processes of a company with regard to their optimal economic and technical implementation.

By choosing one of the three core elective areas of logistics, industrial informatics or renewable energies , individual and labor market-related differentiation and specialization is possible within the course.

Fields of activity for industrial engineers

Graduates of the course of study alt = "Industrial engineering offer themselves as an" all-rounder "a wide range of professional opportunities: Industrial engineers are very much in demand, particularly in industry, but also in business consulting . In industrial companies in particular, there is a high need to automate and modernize processes related to the modern IT society There are often areas of application in departments for product development, manufacturing, sales, logistics, administration, controlling or quality management.
