The automotive industry is one of Germany's largest employers
If we consider all the people working in sectors which are dependent on the automotive sector, this amounts to more than five million jobs: in addition to passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles as well as additional services which are offered by the industry.
Information Technology (IT) gets the horsepower on the road
To a large degree, automotive companies rely on IT applications and technologies in e.g development, manufacturing and sales for their products. This is why all automotive manufacturers, as well as the larger suppliers, have their own IT organisations and, furthermore, work closely together with companies from the IT industry.
For the IT industry, automotive IT solutions – that is, IT solutions for the automotive industry – are a source of considerable revenue. Increasingly, all the major IT service providers, as well as many medium-sized and smaller enterprises, are generating specialized, industry-focused solutions and for this require qualified employees with industry know-how who understand the customer. All the large IT service providers have created their own industry-specific departments or business divisions for this purpose.
Specialised knowledge delivers an advantage
This explains the growing need for qualified workers with competence in automotive processes and products, business management, and information systems and technologies.
The Bachelor's degree in Information Management Automotive provides you with the requisite skills …
... in an interdisciplinary degree programme. Graduates have a crucial edge over graduates of non-industry-specific degree programmes when competing for jobs in the automotive industry, which are among the most coveted and best paid in Germany.
