A Unique Concept: The b.sc. Information Engineering Program

The subject combination of our BIE program is unique and can not be studied at any other German university. However, industry and companies urgently need graduates with according qualifications. This is why you will be irreplaceable as one of the first Information Engineers. Not only in Germany, but worldwide.

 

New digital technologies give companies more and more possibilities to collect, network and evaluate information. To seize opportunities such as the introduction of intelligent products, they need specialists for planning and implementing interconnected holistic IT systems. In our Bachelor program in Information Engineering, you look at the entire chain - from the sensor to the IT system to the business model.

 

The degree offers you the opportunity to acquire solid theoretical, practical, and technical skills in a constantly evolving field and prepares you for your role as an information engineer.
