Help to transform the economy in a climate-friendly way! Many billions of euros will be invested in this over the next few years. Engineers who drive this transformation with technical and business interests are needed for this. Working in a digital environment should feel natural to you.

As an industrial engineer, you know what is technically feasible and economical at the same time. At DIT, you can choose between two specialisations during your studies. The focus on business management prepares you for managerial positions, but also for later self-employment. With the knowledge from the focus on "Business Analytics", you can optimally control and constantly improve the use of resources in your company. Especially when it comes to a more climate-friendly economy. But also the construction of prototypes or the calculation of PV systems are examples of the areas of responsibility of our graduates.

career prospects

Many high-quality and varied jobs await industrial engineers. Often in the automotive or renewable energy sectors. The path to research is just as open to you as tasks in engineering offices or with associations and management consultancies.

These are your fields of work:

  • Product and market development: green solutions for tomorrow and beyond
  • Project management and cost centre responsibility
  • Innovation and technology management, also as a company founder
  • Industrial goods marketing and technical sales
  • Logistics, quantitative planning and business analytics
  • Digitalisation of processes
  • Business unit management and executive management

The core competence of the industrial engineer lies in the integrated view of problems and their solutions. This means that you have to reach agreements with colleagues and convince them. Often you will find yourself in the role of a mediator. The whole thing can also happen on an international level, so you have to be linguistically and interculturally competent. Flexible, cross-sectoral thinking and communication are in the DNA of this degree programme. This gives you a secure basis for dynamic action and the successful development of your personal network. In the course of your career, you can also take on a higher position in management. Working in a digital environment is a matter of course for you at all times.

Through the focus area "Business Analytics", you can grow digitally. You deal with the analysis and evaluation of data of all kinds in order to discover patterns and correlations, as well as with the best possible design of economic and technical systems and processes. Business analytics helps large and small organisations make better decisions and is characterised by interdisciplinary collaboration. It is a key competence for tackling the major challenges of our time: digitalisation, information overload, climate change, sustainability and resource scarcity.
