Engineering sciences aim to find innovative, practical and economical solutions incorporating the latest scientific and technical knowledge – regardless of the study field. With the advancement of technology, communication, and health care, there is a great need for Engineering applications that can solve problems to enhance the quality of life for the world.
The impact of Engineering on the advancement of civilization is innumerable. From the processors that run our smartphones to the power plants that keep our cities lit, to the skyscrapers that seem to touch the sky and planes that travel across continents daily, the mastery and application of engineering effect and improves every aspect of how we work, live, connect and travel.
Besides the technical contents, the teaching of interdisciplinary qualifications, e.g. Leadership, rhetoric, and presentation techniques, is a part of engineering studies. Also, the acquisition of basic knowledge from the fields of economics and law sciences, especially from business administration, is included in the studies.
However, globalization has increased the need for the knowledge of foreign languages as well as openness and understanding other cultures (e.g., Asia).
The engineering degree program will help prepare you to be an innovator of tomorrow with the knowledge and soft skills needed to be a revolutionary Engineer.
Major Fields of Study Include:
This study focuses on the design, development, manufacturing, and testing of new aviation technology, defense systems, space exploration, problem-solving, and improving aircraft systems.
Bioengineering refers to a discipline that works with living systems, including humans, plants, and even microscopic organisms. The discipline applies principles of life science, mathematics and engineering to define and solve problems in the fields of biology, medicine, and healthcare as well as areas of agricultural engineering and national defense.
Biomedical engineering combines medical and biological studies with engineering analysis and design with emphasis on analyzing biological organisms as engineering systems and applying engineering approaches to clinical, biomedical research, and medical problems. By applying engineering methods such as robots for eye surgery, implantable defibrillators, artificial organs and tissues, prosthetics and the like, biomedical engineering aims to improve our quality of life.

Successful graduates of Engineering programmes have excellent career prospects in Germany. Naturally, your chances of finding a job after your studies strongly depend on your personal qualifications.
As new technologies come into play so do new possibilities that arise for the next generation of engineers. By mastering the study and application of the art and science of Engineering, you can improve every aspect of life itself while enjoying a successful career anywhere in the world.
The tasks of engineers are diverse and depend on the respective field of study (or major field of study). Engineers usually work in teams. They plan, organize and optimize operational procedures, develop, calculate, construct and test innovative products and economic manufacturing methods, plan and supervise the production, installation, commissioning, maintenance and operation of machinery and equipment. They plan, calculate and monitor the construction of buildings, calculate costs and are responsible for purchasing, material management, distribution, and application-related customer support.
In addition, they assume planning and supervising tasks in public administration, work in associations and business organizations or in the freelance engineering consultancy.
