Partnerships and work-study courses

Bachelor of Arts in Business Information Technology

Duties:

Business IT specialists plan and develop business information and communication systems in line with analyses of the internal organisational structures.

Typical activities:

Where business administration and information technology come together, business IT specialists research a company’s structures and workflows. They analyse the existing IT systems in terms of their effectiveness, security and efficiency. They check whether these can be modified to meet the latest requirements. If this is not possible, they adapt standard software to the current needs or design new programs. Before a software solution can be presented to the company management or the customer, business IT specialists hold in-depth planning meetings and consultations with their client and IT specialists. They work with future users to test new or modified programs by carrying out typical tasks that arise during actual business usage. Once a system has been approved, they coordinate the programming, integration, support and maintenance of the new software. Business IT specialists also construct databases and create web-based information and knowledge management systems. They optimise internal information and communication processes and take on data management and archiving tasks.

Prerequisites:

Subject-specific secondary school leaving certificate (IT/business college) or general secondary school leaving certificate with good grades in Mathematics, German and English as a minimum, plus excellent IT skills.

Course duration: 6–7 terms

 

Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering

Duties:

Mechanical engineering deals with the design and manufacture of all types of machines and systems. The engineers develop, build and operate both individual, simple elements and highly complex systems such as production lines and entire factories. Mechanical engineering combines basic research with the development and application of the latest production techniques.

Typical activities:

Within the field of production engineering, production engineers are involved with production technology (production methods) and control (process development). Further areas of responsibility include maintenance as well as operational factory and production planning. Typical positions include: workshop manager, production technology specialist and maintenance and operations planning engineer.

Within the field of design and development, mechanical engineering graduates can work in all of a company’s design- and testing-related areas as part of their first job. This can be within, say, the design department, testing department, development department, project planning, sales or equipment design.

Prerequisites:

General higher education entry qualification with good grades in Mathematics, Physics and English as well as a pronounced love of technology.

Course duration: 6–7 terms

 

Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Engineering

Duties:

Industrial engineers are found wherever technology and management come together. In companies, they are mainly responsible for value creation processes from product development, production and logistics through to marketing and sales, as well as the interdisciplinary areas of controlling and project management.

Typical activities:

  • Planning and managing interrelations between operational processes
  • Designing, selecting, optimising and procuring products, processes and systems
  • System planning
  • Project engineering
  • Controlling
  • Customer service and support, technical management

Prerequisites:

General secondary school leaving certificate with good grades in Mathematics, Physics and English.

Course duration: 6–7 terms

 

Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineers resolve practical technical problems and tasks in the electrical field by using suitable procedures and the most economical methods possible. They generally specialise in a specific sub-area of electrical engineering or electronics. Sub-areas of this kind can be divided into four main groups:

  • Information technology
  • Electrical energy technology
  • Measuring, control and automation technology
  • Micro-electronics and micro-system technology

The field of electrical engineering covers a broad range of activity areas:

  • Research and development: simulation, calculation, design and testing of new electrical engineering and electronic components, devices, machines, equipment and systems
  • Process technology: procedures for manufacturing products, creation of test systems
  • Installation, commissioning, maintenance and operation of electrical equipment and systems
  • Sales and product management: technical customer support, and the identification of trends as well as their implementation in cooperation with specialist departments
  • Purchasing: technical specialised purchasing, interface to the development and production departments
  • Work preparation and quality assurance, operational organisation and company management

The area of responsibilities also includes the use and further development of engineering knowledge, taking not only economic aspects, but also legal and safety-related regulations and standards into consideration.

Prerequisites:

Subject-specific secondary school leaving certificate (electrical engineering) or general secondary school leaving certificate with good grades in Mathematics, Physics and English. IT skills are advantageous.

Course duration: 6–7 terms
