In the third and fourth semesters (core studies) the economic and engineering core subjects are covered. You acquire basic knowledge and deepen your specialist knowledge.

The fifth and sixth semesters offer the opportunity to specialize in three technical subjects and two economics subjects. You have a choice of options that correspond to your professional interests. In addition, you will complete and deepen your basic knowledge in the integrative modules.

In the seventh semester, you will work on your practical project and complete your studies with your bachelor's thesis. Further seminar elements allow you to test and practice your acquired presentation and moderation skills during this semester.

The learning objectives of the individual modules can be found in the module manual (only available in German).

The bachelor's examination is the professional qualification of the bachelor's degree in industrial engineering (construction). It consists of: 

  • Coursework and exams (to be done during your studies)
  • Bachelor's thesis, planned for the 7th subject-related semester

The bachelor's thesis proves that you are in a position to work independently with scientific methods on a concrete practical problem definition within a given period of time using the knowledge you have acquired.
