Industrial engineering is still a young academic discipline which established itself in German universities in the 1980s. In the meantime it has become one of the most sought after areas of study with excellent job perspectives. This is because industrial engineering is an interdisciplinary science combining technology with business studies. In companies today, these two disciplines can hardly be separated any longer nor allocated to different areas. Industrial engineering deals with relations between engineering, business and legal problems, and seeks to find comprehensive solutions.

Based on technical knowledge, business data are collected and analysed, and corporate targets set with regard to the demands of the market. In the past, an engineer was responsible for optimising the technical details of a product and the business economist would then set the price and market it; today, the industrial engineer must take into account both aspects simultaneously.

Job profile

As an industrial engineer, you will work on the technical design of products and processes, and also manage and market these products and services. You will be able to work in companies which produce industrially, in the electro-industry, with logistics and software companies, and with consulting companies, e.g. in manufacturing/production, purchasing, materials management, distribution and logistics planning, supply chain management, quality management, marketing and sales, controlling, organisation as well as in research and development.
