The research-oriented master program Industrial Engineering and Management with the degree Master of Science (M. Sc.) is a combination major which is characterized by its interdisciplinarity and almost balance of engineering science, economic science and law. It is based on a Bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering and Management. On the basis of relevant Bachelor's degree programs, these goals are to be attained by the deepening aquirement of knowledge, skills and practical abilities.

The university-specific combination of economic and engineering areas trains the logical-analytic thinking, scope of action and creative possibilites in the intersection between economics and technology within specific industry profiles. The consistent practical-oriented education shall guarantee a direct route to the competence providers in the free enterprise.

The master program aims at a far-reaching scientific examination of individual tasks and questions in the interface between economics and technology. The economic part imparts classical economic content and recent economic developments. The engineering part is divided into the three independent specialisations: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and automation and biomedical technology.
