Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – specialising in Materials Science

Bachelor of Science

Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen — technische Fachrichtung Materialwissenschaft, 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 Materials Science. 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.

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 Material Science 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.
