Industrial Engineering (Wi-Ing) at TU Berlin

The Technical University of Berlin is an internationally renowned university in Germany's capital, in the centre of Europe. It is characterised by a clear profile, outstanding achievements in research and teaching and the qualification of very good graduates. The pursuit of knowledge enhancement and technological progress is guided by the principles of excellence and quality. The range of courses is determined by a broad spectrum of complementary disciplines. They range from engineering sciences to natural sciences, planning sciences and economics to the humanities and social sciences. The Technical University of Berlin is the only university in the region to offer an engineering education.
As a strong research university, it intensively promotes cooperation between science and industry, from which students benefit significantly. In order to meet the social demands and technical issues of the future, the Technical University of Berlin organises its core competencies in interdisciplinary research networks. Six future fields exist as focus areas, all of which have direct or indirect interfaces with the Industrial Engineering and Management degree programme and the topic of logistics:

  1. Digital Transformation
  2. Energy Systems, Mobility, and Sustainable Resources
  3. Human Health, Humanities, and Educational Science
  4. Urban Systems and Environmantal Systems
  5. Photonics and Optical Systems
  6. Materials, Design, and Manufacturing

The Industrial Engineering and Management Degree Programme

The programme in Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technical University has a long tradition and was the first of its kind to be offered in Germany in 1926. Today, it is one of the most renowned and, with over 2,500 students, one of the strongest degree programmes at the Technical University of Berlin.
Its success is essentially based on the interdisciplinary educational concept, which is based on theoretical and practice-oriented questions with the inclusion of technological, economic and social references. The comprehensive study programme leads to an education that is unique in its breadth and of a very high standard in its depth. The basis for this is provided by the excellent technological, information technology and economic courses offered by the chairs of the Technical University of Berlin participating in the training.
Graduates who work in an interdisciplinary and competent manner, who are able to work in a team, who enjoy communication and who are trained in analytical thinking are sought by the practice. Mature personality traits and a high degree of commitment, entrepreneurial thinking and leadership skills round off the profile of success. Recent studies prove the success of this training concept - especially the reputation of our graduates among personnel managers of leading companies is excellent. It is certain that graduates of industrial engineering from the Technical University of Berlin will continue to be sought-after career starters with above-average career opportunities in the future. The level of performance and the associated opportunities of the industrial engineering degree programme at the Technical University of Berlin inspire first-year students and advanced students alike.
For the structure of the Master's programme in Industrial Engineering and Management, current professional developments were taken into account, which can be deepened in various technical fields of study. A comprehensive compulsory elective area rounds off this individual specialisation. In addition, there is a free elective area where students have the opportunity to take courses in sciences unrelated to the subject.
