Bachelor of Science; tuition language: German

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 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 B.Sc. Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen – technische Fachrichtung Materialwissenschaft (i.e. Business Administration and Engineering: Materials Science) focuses on a smaller scale on the engineering area of specialization than the non-business engineering programmes. With respect to their technical field of studies, the students of Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen otherwise attend the same courses as the students enrolled in the corresponding purely technical bachelor’s programs.

Furthermore, the programme includes modules from the areas of Mathematics and Legal Studies.

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen (eusiness 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 Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen — technische Fachrichtung Materialwissenschaft programme can find employment in areas such as material development, material technology (i.e. the development of new production and processing methods), applications engineering, materials testing/quality control, and failure analysis as well as consulting and service businesses. They can find work in the industrial sector and research institutions but also in administration or the insurance sector.
