Special features regarding teachingAn Industrial Engineer is a generalist with a wide range of technical and economic knowledge. The basic philosophy is the integration of the three areas of man, technology and economy. Technical and economic questions form the core content of this course. The holistic and integrative orientation of Friedberger WI can be seen in modules such as Project Management, Quality Management and Business Simulation. Specialisations are made possible by the specialisations and electives, such as Mechanical Engineering or Facility Management.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe THM has pursued internationalism for many years as part of self-administration tasks by designated foreign and partnership officers in the specialist departments in cooperation with the centrally located International Office. The WI department has a foreign representative (with deputy). A procedure for recognising achievements made abroad exists. The department tries to provide support and advice to students who are looking for experience abroad.

Other special featuresThe contact and exchange with our students is very important. For this reason, we have a semester spokesperson for every semester in each course of study. These meet twice a semester together with the QMB and the Dean's Office at the so-called "Round Table WI" to discuss current topics. In this way, the department receives many suggestions that are comprehensibly recorded and followed up in a catalogue of measures. The current courses were created in a strategy process, which aimed to anchor the current trends in society in the course.
