The main aim of the programme is the integration of practical, technical and business knowledge. Our graduates are generalists, not specialists. Key skills such as methodology, social and communication skills complete the programme. The Business Administration and Engineering - Product Engineering course provides specialized knowledge in the areas of product development, and product and technology management which can be applied across all industries. The combination of engineering, business and management know-how is what make our graduates stand out from the crowd.
Complete mastery of the product lifecycle in companies - from the product idea, through development and manufacture, to sales, marketing and service. This is at the basis of all our Business Administration and Engineering study programmes. The foundation level courses are the same for all three bachelor's courses, providing a basis of technical, business, communication and foreign language know-how. The course is practical and project-oriented right from the start, with 1 internship semester and 2 projects built into the course. In order to put theory into practice and to deepen this knowledge, students carry out an internship in the 5th semester in a company. An 8-week pre-study internship should also be carried out before starting the degree programme. The projects in the 3rd and 4th semesters, carried out in teams and supervised by a professor, are real-life jobs from the business world. During the projects students also develop valuable teamworking and project management skills.
The aim of the Product Engineering course is to provide technical and business knowledge about the product lifecycle with particular focus in the area of development, testing and production. Students also develop other key skills such as project management, presentation techniques and rhetoric.
Graduates of the programme typically work in the areas of product management, production management and sales support.
