Programme contents

This interdisciplinary course imparts engineering, mathematical, socioscientific, economic and IT knowledge, so that students are able to model, simulate and design systems from different perspectives. To be able to meet variable requirements, industrial engineers must have hands-on professional scientific knowledge and methodological skills. On the one hand, the design, optimisation and implementation of operational processes in terms of business production of goods and services are required; on the other, monitoring by a qualified individual of the constantly changing competitive environment, particularly the technology-dominated markets, is needed to identify new challenges early and use them for a company's benefit.


The Programme preparation and reflection phase of the Bachelor's Programme Mechanical Engineering - Management consists of an online self-assessment on mathematical and mechanical engineering related topics.

Interest in technical scientific processes and their business/economic contexts is ideal for this course. You should be open to the use of computer tools, for example to develop and simulate technical and business models in order to create forecasts for the real world.

The Faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering is particularly interested in encouraging students from general and vocational colleges to study engineering. Economy and science depend on tapping into the talents and skills of young women. Social skills, versatility and communication skills are particularly important for the Business Engineering specialising in Mechanical Engineering course, in addition to technical and analytical strengths.

The facilities of the Faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, including study areas and laboratory equipment, are modern and forward-thinking. The course is not currently oversubscribed and there are plenty of free spaces for all lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions and seminars.

The job prospects reflect the modern, interdisciplinary qualification between engineering and business that this degree is. Business Engineering caters to the economy's urgent need for engineers who are trained in business and management. The prospects for good and interesting positions are excellent and many of our graduates have found employment in top positions. Unemployment amongst Business Engineering graduates is practically unheard of and starting salaries are well above average.

The combination of technical expertise and modern management techniques makes this course the best investment for a successful career in the Austrian or European economy.

The completion of the bachelor's degree in industrial engineering - mechanical engineering (E 033 282) entitles the student to continue studying directly in the master's degree in industrial engineering - mechanical engineering (E 066 482).
