Qualification profile of the graduate
The Bachelor of Economics Engineering is divided into a basic program with mandatory modules (semesters 1-4 with a total of 110 credit points (CP)) and a specialisation program with elective modules (semesters 4-6 with a total of 70 CP).
The course of studies strongly focuses on quantitative methods. The foundations are laid in the basic program which features mandatory modules comprising three mathematics courses (analysis, linear algebra, differential equations), two statistics courses (descriptive and inductive statistics, probability theory, regression), and two operations research courses (various optimisation models and methods). The other mandatory modules pick up these basics and carry them forward with subject-specific focuses.
The interdisciplinary Bachelor of Economics Engineering aims for a broad qualification in the following subjects: Economics with Econometrics, Business Administration, Informatics, Operations Research, Law, and Science. In the specialisation program, it is possible for students to set a certain thematic focus, whereby at least two modules (9 CP each, usually comprising two lectures with tutorials) must be selected from the Economics courses and one module from the Business Administration courses. In addition, students must select two modules and one seminar module from a specified range of subjects. Both modules can be chosen from among the subjects of Informatics, Operations Research, Business Administration, Economics, Engineering, Science, Statistics, Law or Sociology. Both elective modules can generally be taken in one subject. However, a maximum total of one module can be dropped for the subjects of Law and Sociology.
A full-time internship comprising at least 12 weeks provides an insight to business practices and to the job chances of economics engineering. At least one seminar and the Bachelor's thesis train the skills to compose and present an independent piece of research. The possibility of an international exchange is provided through ERASMUS+ programs and bilateral direct cooperation programs.
In Economics and Business Administration, a variety of theoretical approaches are applied as well as all commonly applied methods of empirical analysis: from the collection and analysis of field data to laboratory experiments and computer-aided simulations. The Business Administration courses comprise accounting, finance economy, business management, information engineering and management, industrial production, and marketing. The Economics courses comprise microeconomic and macroeconomic theories, industrial economics and network economics, public finance and economic policy, as well as political economy. In Operations Research, the methods and models of continuous, discrete, stochastic, and dynamic optimisation are taught and algorithmically applied. Informatics focuses on theoretical fundamentals as well as on practical methods for applying information and communication technologies in economy, management, and society. In Law Students will learn the fundamentals of private and public law. For Science, students can choose if they would like to learn the fundamentals of physics or chemistry.
This sound methodological education provides graduates with the skills to apply subject-specific terms, methods, models, and approaches, and to combine these in an interdisciplinary manner. They can analyse and evaluate economic issues within the context of business and technology, and take on responsibility within interdisciplinary teams. They are able to carry out subject-specific and interdisciplinary debates and defend their views when discussing these with expert representatives and laypersons. They possess the ability to apply the acquired knowledge in career-related activities in the fields of industry, the service sector, or public administration, as well as the ability to take on the Master of Economics Engineering or a related course of study.
