Information for foreign applicants: Incoming
This program requires a preliminary internship of 8 weeks that has to have been completed by the end of the fourth semester. It is recommended that the internship is completed at least 4 weeks prior to commencement of studies.
The contents of the preliminary internship should be geared towards the following sectors (each 4 weeks):
- Business internship
(Cost accounting, Purchasing, Procurement, Marketing, Sales and other business departments)
- Technical internship
(basic training in metal and plastic machining, working, design, production engineering, assembly, montage and quality assurance)
International Industrial Engineering is a modification of the program Industrial Engineering, where the focus is laid on internationalisation. During the first semesters, students learn the basics of technology, business sciences and computer science. The language skills are developed from the fourth semester onwards (usually English) and important soft skills are trained. Starting in semesters five and six, more than half of the courses taught are organised in elective modules. Two further semesters are spent abroad in non-German speaking countries. The first of these two semesters, the seventh semester, is reserved for more study courses that students can choose at a partner university abroad. After this, the eighth semester is intended as an internship in the same country abroad. Studies are concluded with the bachelor's dissertation. By offering more courses in a foreign language and including aspects that compare international countries and cultures in the program, you are prepared for a managerial role on the international job market.

Goals and Career Prospects
The aim of this program, which is based on scientific principles and practice-oriented, is qualifiying the students to be employable on the international job market after their studies. Industrial engineers combine their hybrid knowledge based on their technical and business training and thus provide the industry and service sector with direct access to profound interdisciplinary qualifications. Engineers who have completed this program also distinguish themselves thanks to their language skills and intercultural competence that they have gained from their time spent abroad.
The occupational profile covers generally all areas of industry, from the production to the service sector. Graduates will be able to find jobs in departments that coordinate technical and business tasks, such as purchasing, production, logistics, marketing, sales, controlling, organisation and data processing. Due to the competencies that have been gained abroad, students are well trained for working in or managing international mixed teams.
