Engineering and business management
In companies, many details are critical for creating added value. An important prerequisite for this is interdisciplinary know-how equally considering business issues and technical processes. Strategic vision and detailed knowledge of operational processes are both imperative. That is why experts with an awareness of the big picture and with an understanding of engineering issues and modern business management are in demand.
Whether in the industry or in the service sector, industrial engineers operate at the interface between economics and technology. They mediate between the disciplines and keep an eye on business process chains from purchasing to production through to sales and distribution. In professional life, expertise and especially communication skills and team orientation are of great importance for a successful employment in fields like production planning, marketing and distribution, technical purchasing or quality management.
