  • Special features regarding teaching
    One degree - two professions! Our graduates are both Engineers and Business Economists in one. They combine technical and commercial skills and are therefore ideally prepared for management tasks in technically demanding projects. You can specialise from the 6th semester onwards - you can choose from three specialisation areas. Compulsory elective areas in the 6th and 7th semester further round off the personal profile. The course has very good business contacts for excursions, internships etc. Lecturers from the business world deal with current practical topics.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Different sub modules can be offered in English if required.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Northumbria University in Newcastle, UK; Institute of Technology Carlow, Irland; University of Limerick, Irland; Institute of Technology Limerick, Irland; Institute of Technology Tralee, Irland; FH Kufstein Tirol, Österreich; Yasar University Izmir, Türkei; Universidad del Pais Vasco, Spanien; Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spanien; University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    All common test devices for determining the most important material and component parameters, modern scanning electron microscope (SEM), micro-range analysis (EDX), modern light microscopy and image analysis, CNC universal milling machine, X-ray devices with goniometer; ultrasound test set; wave machine; wind tunnel, 3D printer, software application SolidWorks for learning CAD, programming and building robots with LEGO Mindstorms, Excel VBA programming.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Current research specialisations: Leasing accounting; IFRS 16 handling in an international environment; development of innovative 3D circuit carriers for medical micro implants; ENsource, phase 2: Several universities and industrial partners work in a ZAFH (Centre for Applied Research at Universities) on methods for an optimal electrical and thermal energy supply in neighbourhoods (districts, company locations, etc.): New method for simple measurement of load profiles for thermal consumers (application KI); use of industrial robots with an open control system.
  • Support for founders
    Integrative project laboratory: Groups of students simulate start-ups as part of the course "Integrative Project Laboratory". According to a given task, they build and program a prototype of a robot and create a business plan for their start-up and their product. At the final presentation, they try to convince investors to invest in their start-up on a simulated exhibition stand.
  • Other special features
    The course is offered in three study models: As a classic full-time course, as a "cooperative study model" and as "study with in-depth practice". The cooperative study model combines shortened vocational training (skilled worker training) and full-time study, the entire time is paid. Three apprenticeships are possible: Industrial Clerk (m / f / d), Electronics Technician (m / f / d) or Mechatronic Technician (m / f / d). When studying with more in-depth practice, students gain practical experience in a company during their full-time study, during the semester break.
