And after your studies?
International industrial engineers are team players; they are interculturally competent and can move confidently and respectfully on the international stage.
Manufacturing companies and management consultancies value your understanding of global value, material, information and financial resource flows.
Their sound technical and scientific expertise and familiarity with the latest technologies is sought for the planning and construction of factories, production facilities and warehouses.
They can manage supply chains in a globalised environment and plan production and logistics systems.
Master’s degree studies
After graduation, you will have 210 ECTS credits and thus fulfil the admission requirements for many advanced Master's programmes in Germany and worldwide.
For me, studies at ESB and especially the international orientation were the basis for an international career. As the head of a global IT project, today I still appreciate the knowledge I gained during my studies.
