Detailed description of the degree programme

Long-term business success requires integrated management. This is especially true for technically oriented companies, where executives should not only think and act economically, but also have an understanding of their company’s core business. In our Bachelor programme in Business Management in Technology focusing on Engineering Physics, you will be trained to become an expert in this field.

Objectives

The degree programme combines business thinking with technical implementation. After completing your degree, you will be able to establish connections between the disciplines. You will consider problems in an interdisciplinary manner, find solutions independently and be able to present your knowledge convincingly. During your studies, you will work independently and efficiently – another skill you will benefit from in your professional career.

Occupational fields

Your abilities will make you a sought-after expert. For example, you will take on leadership responsibility in development and production departments or manage the sales of a production group. Not least, your Bachelor’s degree will enable you to pursue postgraduate studies. For more information about your opportunities to pursue a Master’s programme, please visit our departmental website and the Institute of Business Administration and Engineering website.

Content and course sequence

The Bachelor programme in Business Management in Technology focusing on Engineering Physics consists of various modules, enabling you to tailor your academic career individually. You can choose between two different lines with regard to content: the business elements are provided by the Institute of Business Administration and Engineering (ITB); in the Department of Engineering Physics you will learn about engineering.

These two lines are closely linked from the very beginning. In the first few semesters, you will learn the basics of business administration and controlling. At the same time, you will acquire a fundamental knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.

In the fourth and fifth semesters, various optional modules will enable you to improve your expertise. At ITB, you will develop your profile, for example in Human Resources, International Management or Patents. At our department, you will be able to choose from a variety of modules, such as: Laser Engineering, Sensor Technology, Technical Optics, Clinical Biomechanics, and Medical Device Technology.

In business simulations, communication training and project management exercises, you will learn how to apply your expertise specifically.

In the final semester, you will apply your knowledge during a work placement. Our good contacts with the business world and industry will make sure that you will find an attractive partner for your practical experience. You will also write your Bachelor thesis at this time. During colloquia, you will be involved in networking events, enabling you to discuss your hypotheses and ideas with other students.
