Welcome to the Faculty of Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineering is a relatively young academic discipline. With its close ties between technology and business administration, it focuses on the requirements needed to gain positions in business and industry. Therefore, our programmes offer a wide range of different and interesting assignment opportunities, both at home and abroad.


Some 1000 students cannot only graduate in the "traditional topic areas" of industrial engineering, such as production and logistics, but can also gain their degree in innovative priority fields, such as Cleaning Technology and Hygiene Management, Marketing, Energy Management or in Human Engineering.


The students are taught and supervised by 20 professors, supported and complemented by contract lecturers. The faculty's practical focus also calls for close collaboration and exchange with companies located in the region.


Besides the formal requirements, an interest in and an understanding of business administration, the natural sciences and mathematics plus the ability to engage in abstract logical thinking are also absolutely essential for studying industrial engineering.
