The following English language content is for information purposes only. The legally binding content can be found on the corresponding German website.


All “Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen” (Business Administration and 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 Master’s degree programmes in Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen — technische Fachrichtung Maschinenbau (i.e. Business Administration and Engineering: Mechanical Engineering) focuses 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 otherwise attend the same courses as the students enrolled in the corresponding purely technical Master’s programmes.

During the programme, it is possible to do the internship abroad as well as spend entire semesters in a foreign country.

Business engineers work at the interface of technical and business needs. Development, marketing and product life cycles, for example, are much shorter today than only a few years ago. Therefore, business, 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 Studies Mechanical Engineering programme 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.
