Make companies digitally fit

Digital transformation encompasses all companies and organizations and rewards innovation and creativity. The completely revised BSc Engineering Management focuses on the necessary competencies and specific specialist knowledge to master the challenges of the digital age.

In the course of studies, both the business side (strategies, processes, customer relationships, etc.) and the digital technologies that make the new business models possible are examined. The new specialisation "Digital Engineering" builds on this with expert knowledge on digitisation strategies, agile project management and digital business cases.


As of autumn 2019: new core subjects Digital Business and Digital Technologies.
