Detailed description of the degree programme

Engineers develop products, design production systems and provide technical services. Business economists calculate prices, secure financing, and market products. As an industrial engineer, you will combine these two areas of responsibility and work at the juncture between technology and business.


After completing your degree at Münster University of Applied Sciences, you will be able to skilfully coordinate and optimise operational procedures and production processes. You will connect the subject areas of economics and engineering sciences, and will also have the communication skills required to successfully mediate between these areas.

Occupational fields

Industrial engineers work in different company divisions, often in production and logistics, project management, sales or controlling, but also in the field of operations and at the middle management level. You will be able to do this work in a variety of sectors, ranging from the automotive industry, to mechanical engineering and management consulting, to auditing, information technology and logistics. After obtaining your Bachelor’s degree, you could also pursue our Master’s programme in Industrial Engineering – either as a full-time or part-time student. After five semesters, you will obtain your Master of Business Administration and Engineering degree.

Content and course sequence

Our degree programme includes three groups of modules.

  • Economics

In this module, you will learn the basics of subjects such as business administration, accounting, controlling, economics, investment and finance. You will also be able to specialise in either marketing or production planning/control.

  • Engineering Sciences

Our modules will provide you with a wide range of knowledge in the technical area. In addition to mathematics and statistics, courses offered also include content from physics, electrical engineering, materials science, design engineering, computer science and automation technology.

  • Key Transferable Skills

In modules such as business communication and management skills, you will acquire interdisciplinary competencies – including for international settings.

Our degree programme is based on nine semesters and is specifically tailored to meet your requirements. A flexible time and learning management schedule will enable you to combine your studies with your job: you can continue working, regardless of whether you serve an apprenticeship or work.

Around 75% of our degree programme consists of self-study sections and 25% of periods of mandatory attendance. We will provide you with learning material for your private studies, enabling you to learn the content yourself. During term time, we will offer you practicals and lab work; sometimes attendance is compulsory. Courses usually take place on Saturdays. In addition, you will do in-depth work placements during the week for a maximum of five days per semester. In the ninth semester, you will write your Bachelor thesis and conclude the degree course with a colloquium.

Why choose us

We attach great importance to combining theory and practice. We want you to apply the methods and tools you have gained not only from the periods of mandatory attendance at Münster University of Applied Sciences, but also specifically from your professional environment. Seminar papers are particularly suitable for such knowledge transfer, enabling you to solve real business issues from an academic perspective.

Small study groups facilitate close exchange with other students and motivate them to reflect what they have learned across functions and sectors.
