Technology, Engineering (general)

In our modern times, technical systems, devices and systems are being expanded by increasingly powerful mechanical, electronic or information technology components, making them increasingly complex. Against this background, specialists are needed who are fit for the interdisciplinary cooperation of various engineering disciplines.

The study field at a glance

The field of study "Technology, Engineering (comprehensive)" combines a broad, method-oriented education. It combines the general engineering sciences with the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science.

Offered courses

The study program includes:

  • purely engineering studies, e.g. general engineering, "engineering science", "engineering technical systems", international engineering or MINT basic studies,
  • degree courses in cybernetics (e.g. "Systems Engineering and Technical Cybernetics" or "Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory"), i.e. the control and regulation of machines, living beings and social organizations,
  • degree courses in patent engineering that supplement the engineering fundamentals with legal content
  • Systems engineering degree programs (e.g. "Intelligent Mobile Systems" or Systems Engineering) that deals with the development of complex technical systems in large projects.

Contents of the course

First of all, a generalized basic education in the subjects engineering, natural sciences, mathematics and computer science takes place. Depending on the course of study, scholarships may be taught i.a. the subjects General Business Administration, Automation Technology, Electrical Signal Processing, Electronic Systems, Chemistry, Design, Materials Science, Mathematics for Engineers, Microtechnology, Process Informatics, Law and Thermodynamics.

Within the scope of specializations, the students can subsequently acquire subject-specific knowledge. The specializations include, for example, mechanical engineering, medical engineering, optoelectronics, energy and environmental technology, electrical engineering and information technology, and bioprocess engineering.

Admission criteria & course application

In some cases, aptitude tests or multi-week internships are required, which can usually be completed by the end of the third semester. The degree programs are usually restricted. The application is made via the university.

Possible careers after graduation

The areas of responsibility of engineers are diverse and depend on the respective field of study or main focus. They work, for example, in mechanical engineering, in biotechnology, in aerospace, in the automotive, electrical and chemical industries, in science and research at universities and private institutes, in craft enterprises, law firms, patent offices, associations and Organizations or in public administration.
