Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen – technische Fachrichtung Maschinenbau, M.Sc.
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 tot 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.
The programme deepens and expands the skills and knowledge acquired in the Bachelor’s degree programme for planning, management, and production of machines and technical systems. Located at the interface of Business Studies and Mechanical Engineering, the programme is particularly characterised by its research orientation. The Master’s degree includes various other forms of learning to work scientifically (seminar papers, research papers, Master’s Thesis) in order to gain initial experience in basic and applied research. The programme caters to personal preferences by offering numerous electives and areas of specialisation. Therefore, we recommend that you attend the introductory lecture “Introduction to the Master’s Degree Programme” offered by the department at the beginning of your Master’s programme.
An additional commercial internship serves the qualification of students. A completed commercial training or a completed vocational training in the field of mechanical engineering may be taken into account completely or partially. If possible, the 12-week internship should be completed before the start of the programme; it must, however, be completed no later than by the day of registering for the last subject exam. During the programme, it is possible to do the internship abroad as well as spend entire semesters in a foreign country.
