What does it cover?

In the first two semesters of the study programme, students are introduced to three areas of engineering: Applied Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Food Technology. Here they learn about different specialist disciplines and acquire basic skills. In the third semester students elect to specialise in one of the three areas.

The study programme is intended both for prospective international and German students, especially prospective students from an immigrant background.

The language of instruction in the introductory part of the programme (“Basisstudium”) is English. This helps to improve access to the programme for international students and to develop the language skills of German students.

In addition to knowledge of the subject, students acquire linguistic and intercultural skills as well as competency in social and cultural sciences.

Your Profile

  • You enjoy science and technology.
  • You are keen to get an insight into different kinds of engineering so that you can subsequently decide on the right specialisation for your degree programme.
  • You want to prepare yourself in the best possible way for internationalisation in industry by learning other languages.

Your background

  • You have a high-school leaving certificate, technical high-school leaving certificate or a qualification as a master craftsman.
  • Your proficiency in English is good enough (B2 level) for you to follow teaching in English.
  • You also need evidence of German language skills (Level B1 or equivalent).

Programme content and structure

The Bachelor of International Engineering programme commences each year in the winter semester. The standard duration of studies is eight semesters (240 ECTS credit points). The first two semesters of the study programme cover general engineering principles (including mathematics, physics, computer science and chemistry), and the language of instruction is English. An important component of this introductory study (“Basisstudium”) is for students to learn German to the level of the DSH II German proficiency examination (for students whose mother tongue is German this is replaced by an equivalent course in a foreign language). Students are introduced in an “Orientation” module to essential content of the three available specialisations (Applied Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Food Technology). This is intended to make it easier for them to choose their subsequent specialisation (third to eighth semester).

Detailed information on the programme content, structure and the detailed description of the modules can be found in the current examination regulations (see Quicklinks).

Career prospects

The study programme prepares students for working in an international environment. Graduates acquire skills in planning, processing and evaluating technical or specialist tasks and problems in engineering disciplines.
