Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – specialising in Mechanical Engineering

Bachelor of Science

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen — technische Fachrichtung Maschinenbau, B.Sc.


All Business Engineering degree programmes at the Technical University of 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.

The programme is located at the interface of Business Studies and Mechanical Engineering. 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.

Studying Business Engineering is suitable for everyone who is interested in a business-oriented as well as an engineering-oriented education. The interdisciplinary skills and knowledge taught within this framework aim at enabling the students to communicate with experts of Business Studies as well as Engineering on problems and their solutions.

A solid scientific-mathematical basis is absolutely essential for a successful course of study. Mathematics, in particular, play a 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.

On this website you will find orientation and information about the first steps into the study program, important preliminary courses and the orientation week. Get to know the university, ask your questions and find support and advice.

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 Technical University of 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. Regarding further questions please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

Business Engineering graduates work at the interface of technological and business needs. Development, marketing, and product life cycles, for example, are much shorter today than only a few years ago. Therefore, business or construction and marketing procedures must be concluded simultaneously more often than before. For this interface requirement, business engineers are equipped with the necessary skills in both fields. Graduates of the Business Engineering – Technical Field of Study Mechanical Engineering program may find employment in management positions or in research and development. Their employers include mechanical, automotive, and aircraft engineering businesses as well as logistics, consulting, and service businesses. They take on, for instance, operative tasks in the fields of production control, quality assurance, process monitoring as well as in controlling and marketing.
