Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – specialising in Mechanical Engineering

Master of Science

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen – technische Fachrichtung Maschinenbau, M.Sc.

Description

All Business Engineering degree programmes at the TU Darmstadt are defined by their distinct interdisciplinary nature. They contain parts of both the 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 Business 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.

Part-time Studies possible under specific conditions
Special Features TU Darmstadt offers a Double Degree Programme at a partner university for this course.

While a Bachelor’s degree focuses mainly on the fundamentals of the field, the Master’s degree serves to upgrade the qualifications of graduates and to analyse the subject based on research. The Master’s degree focuses more than the Bachelor’s degree on enabling and requiring students to adopt their own major focus.

For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the TU Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at TU Darmstadt

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.
