Graduates of Information Systems Engineering are working at the interface between computer science and economics, especially in business economics. This concerns among others engineering science, communication science and operations research. There is a close relation to Industrial Engineering and Management, especially in the fields of materials management, production planning and controlling and logistics.

Information Systems Engineering deals with principles, models, methods and tools for information systems. Information Systems Engineering considers the planning, development, implementation, the running and progression of information systems that are applied for the formalized support of business procedures and for the structured strategic and operational decision-making in companies and public administration.

The goal of this program is to enable graduates to responsibly and interdisciplinarily cooperate with computer scientists, economists, merchants and other specialists to develop and design computer-aided information systems, to implement, introduce and use them and to adapt them to changing requirements. In the medium-term, students are enabled to successfully take over managing positions in the surroundings of Information Systems Engineering.
