Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – specialising in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

Bachelor of Science

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen – technische Fachrichtung Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, B.Sc.


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 programme 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.

Special Features For this degree programme, the Technische Universität Darmstadt offers Online Self-Assessment for selecting a course of study.

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.

Use these tools for a smart start into the programme:

Online Self-Assessment

Mathematics pre-course

Orientierungswoche (OWO) (orientation event) at the beginning of the first semester.

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.
