All Business Engineering degree programmes at TU Darmstadt are defined by their distinct interdisciplinary nature. They contain parts of both Business Studies (Business Administration and Economics) and Law on the one hand, and Engineering on the other to nearly the same extent.
In their technical orientation, the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Business Engineering focus on a smaller scale on the engineering area of specialisation than the non-business Engineering programmes. With respect to their technical field of studies, the students of Business Engineering attend the same courses as the students enrolled in the corresponding purely technical Bachelor’s programmes.
The Bachelor of Science programme Business Engineering – Technical Field of Studies Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (WI-etit) is located at the interface of Business Studies and Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. Courses from these two areas make up the largest part of the studies. Furthermore, the programme includes modules from the areas of Mathematics and Legal Studies.
The module handbook will help you gather detailed information on the content of the programme.

How to Prepare for the Programme
For a beginning, start with TU Darmstadt's own specific Online Self-Assessment tool.
As mathematical knowledge is very important for the study programme, the Fachschaft (Departmental Students` Representative Committee) organises a Mathematik-Vorkurs (supporting mathematics course for beginners).
Alternatively/additionally it is recommended that beginners participate in the online mathematics pre-course offered by the Department of Mathematics.
Please do also check the general information on pre-courses.
The study programme starts with the Orientierungswoche (OWO) (orientation event) at the beginning of the first semester.
Advice for Prospective B.Sc. Students
Studying Business Engineering is suitable for everyone who is interested in a business-oriented as well as an engineering-oriented – and thus interdisciplinary – education. The skills and knowledge taught within this framework aim at enabling the students to communicate with experts of Business Studies and Engineering on problems and their solutions.
A solid scientific-mathematical basis is absolutely essential for a successful course of study. Mathematics plays a particularly vital role in the general context of the programme.
Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.
Apart from technical qualifications, the everyday professional life of business engineers also requires Soft Skills such as communication skills and the ability to work in a team, or creativity.

General Information: With the Bachelor of Science, the students will acquire a first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science is considered the standard qualification at TU Darmstadt. For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.|
Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.
