Why study industrial engineering?

The industrial engineering course is attractive to you if you want to pursue economic and technical interests in your studies. Graduates have huge job opportunities for three reasons in particular ...

That speaks (among other things) in favor of the course:

  • Germany is a high-tech country that depends on innovation. Anyone who would like to take on responsibility here in a company will benefit from an interdisciplinary degree in business and technology.
  • In the digital society, the separation between technical and business issues is becoming blurred. Industrial engineers understand both and can therefore take on important interface functions.
  • Data and data-based decisions are becoming more and more important in companies and research. The industrial engineering course has a strong quantitative and methodical orientation and is the perfect preparation for these tasks.

 

Why industrial engineering at KIT?

There are some universities in Germany where you can study industrial engineering very well. In comparison, studying with us has three important advantages:

If you study industrial engineering at KIT, you can design your course content particularly individually. When you start your studies, you do not commit to a technical subject. First of all, our compulsory courses in the basic program offer you a broad overview. In the subsequent specialization program, you can choose the course content in the technical subjects and economics according to your own interests and goals. Link to the module manual.

Digitization permeates all areas of business and technology. That is why computer science content is particularly anchored in our basic program as well as in the advanced program. As a graduate, you can actively help shape the digital transformation of the economy and society.

For us, the industrial engineering course is the core course at the KIT Faculty of Economics. The courses in economics and computer science are designed for your degree program and tailored to your interests.

What else speaks in favor of studying industrial engineering at KIT?

The three advantages mentioned make the industrial engineering course at KIT unique. In addition, there are a number of other reasons that speak for studying with us:

  • Top positions in rankings. In surveys of students and personnel managers in companies, our degree program regularly scores very well.
  • Job opportunities. After completing their studies with us, students usually find a job that they like very quickly.
  • In order to get in contact with exciting companies during your studies, the KIT Faculty of Economics has set up a partner network especially for your degree programs. In lectures, workshops or excursions you have the opportunity to exchange ideas with exciting companies and you will gain insights into how your knowledge from your studies is applied in practice. Here is an overview of the corporate partners.

This is what our students say about the industrial engineering course:

Max K. is studying industrial engineering as a bachelor

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

After graduating from high school, my preferred course was mechanical engineering. But first I wanted to explore the world a little, which turned into a two-year stay abroad. During this time I came up with new thoughts and made plans. I realized that I was not satisfied with the existing economic system and thought about what I can do about it. I came to the conclusion that if you want to change something, you have to be very familiar with the subject. I was torn ... business or something technical? Thank goodness I became aware of the industrial engineering course at KIT, which combines these two departments and much more. What can I say, so far I am extremely happy with my choice!

What do you particularly like about your studies?

The diversity of the different subjects appeals to me very much. You quickly learn basic skills in various technical, mathematical, economic and other subjects. So things rarely get monotonous, if at all.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

In my opinion, Karlsruhe has the right mix of opportunities for excellent education and leisure activities. The KIT definitely has an absolute premium location in Karlsruhe. In summer you can be in the castle park in less than 5 minutes after studying. This is ideal for an after-work beer with friends, jam or slackline sessions and much more. Student life in Karlsruhe can be very inexpensive. The bike is a good choice in every season to get to your destination quickly. The distances are very short, the way to the university is usually less than 10 minutes.

Which leisure activities do you use at KIT and how do you get involved at KIT / on campus?

In my free time, I do weekly swimming training, which is offered as part of university sports. There you get to know cool people and make new friends quickly. Furthermore, I am a member of the KIT fitness studio "Walk-in". The training vibe there is really great. The trainers and employees can fall back on extensive specialist knowledge and are happy to give valuable tips and answer questions about training, nutrition, etc. at the highest level.

What is your ultimate insider tip in Karlsruhe?

Surfing in Karlsruhe. Who would have thought? At least not myself. But there is a spot very close by where you can enjoy a casual lap on the board in the middle of Baden. I won't tell you where that is, but if you ask around you will find out quickly;)

Max R. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

To be honest, I did not deal very intensively with why I want to study at KIT before starting the course. I just knew that at the beginning of your studies you don't have to decide in which direction you want to go. And I was aware that the course places a great focus on mathematical influences. In the master’s program, the options available were a very convincing argument.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

In order to link directly to the selection options, I like the current topics in the various departments. Be it in computer science, data science or Industry 4.0, the wide-ranging and highly topical selection of topics runs through our studies.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

In Karlsruhe, the distances are super short. That means that you can get everywhere quickly and that life takes place in the city center. In addition, there are a lot of student pubs in the east of the city and you have a huge park in the university and residential area through the palace garden.

Which leisure activities do you use at KIT and how do you get involved at KIT / on campus?

In winter I use the swimming pool again and again and in summer the faculties' summer festivals are always a welcome change from everyday university life.

What is your ultimate insider tip in Karlsruhe?

Evening events from the event forge and the offer of the old slaughterhouse with regard to events is very good, but little used.

Layla W. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

Since I really enjoyed the subject "economics" at school and at the same time wanted to study engineering, the course was of course the right one for me. After inquiring about the offers of different universities, it was clear that I would like to go to Karlsruhe, because at the beginning of the course you don't have to commit yourself to a specific direction (business administration or engineering), but can first get an overview .

What do you particularly like about your studies?

What I like most is the freedom to design my studies myself. In the basic course you quickly find out what you really enjoy and in which direction you should continue. There is a huge range of modules for the specialization course: energy industry, vehicle technology, finance, logistics ... it really is everything. In principle, every industrial engineer in Karlsruhe enjoys a different education and can then enter precisely the areas in their professional life in which they have deepened.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

The nice thing about Karlsruhe is that it is not an incredibly big city and that makes it very cozy. You have everything you need in close proximity, you have many opportunities to go out, but there is still no big city chaos. After a stressful day of learning (or a night out), you can relax in the castle garden or at the surrounding quarry ponds.

Marit M. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

I decided on the bachelor's degree because you didn't have to commit yourself to a specific area of ​​specialization right from the start. In the basic course you can first get a taste of all areas and then decide how to proceed. The international offer played a particularly important role in my decision to stay here for my master’s degree. Our faculty has double master's agreements with universities in France and Sweden. In Linköping I was able to get to know a new city and a different student culture for another year.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

I particularly like the wide range of courses that we can take. Especially in the bachelor's and master’s courses you have individual options and can deepen in different directions depending on your interests. Whether logistics, vehicle technology, energy industry or biosystem technology, the spectrum is huge! The KIT also has a large number of partner universities - both within the framework of the Erasmus program and overseas. In this way, you can gain various international experiences with the support of the university.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

Since there are a few other universities here besides KIT, Karlsruhe is full of students. The city is a good size and everything can be reached quickly by bike. Especially in summer, life next to the university takes place outside in the castle garden or at the quarry pond. In addition, you can get to the Black Forest or Alsace very quickly from here!

Which leisure activities do you use at KIT and how do you get involved at KIT / on campus?

I try out a new sport in university sports almost every semester. The offer is huge and cheap. The large selection of university groups also offers the opportunity to get involved or to gain practical experience. There are also various choirs and orchestras. The leisure time activities I use most at KIT are definitely drinking coffee and meeting people at the AKK;)

What is your ultimate insider tip in Karlsruhe?

Just discovered, but chosen to be your current favorite place: the Rhine harbor at sunset.

Hanna L. is studying industrial engineering as a bachelor

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

After graduating from high school, I was not sure which direction I should take. I then decided on the industrial engineering course, because you are very broadly positioned here, you can work in a wide variety of areas afterwards and thus keep many options open during the course. Reasons for me to go to KIT were the overall rather economic orientation of the course and the fact that you can also take a supplementary course in "Sustainable Development", which I found very interesting.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

I particularly like the wide range of specialization options and the variety that it creates. In addition, there is a great atmosphere among us, who are students of Karlsruhe, and a great sense of solidarity, with which even the most difficult challenges and math exams can be mastered.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

For me, Karlsruhe is the perfect size: There are many leisure activities, bars and clubs, parks, shops, everything you need and yet everything can still be easily reached by bike. And Karlsruhe is one of the sunniest cities in Germany!

Which leisure activities do you use at KIT and how do you get involved at KIT / on campus?

This summer semester I am playing with a few friends in the beach volleyball university league, where you can compete against other teams in an easy-going competition. I am also involved in the university group Enactus KIT e.V., which sets up social, innovative projects with an entrepreneurial background. In the student university groups, in addition to applying what has been learned from the course, fun is of course not neglected!

What is your ultimate insider tip in Karlsruhe?

Old but gold and not quite so secret: the palace garden in every season, but especially in summer during the palace light show! But there are also a few more hidden, beautiful spots to discover, e.g. Haydnplatz in the West City or the Grand Ducal Chapel in the forest in the East City.

Rebecca E. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

The broad range of the course and the opportunity to gain insight into many different disciplines. I think it's great that you first acquire basic knowledge in all disciplines and then later incorporate your own interests in the various specialization modules!

What do you particularly like about your studies?

The choices for industrial engineers at KIT are really huge and I think it's great. For me, it is part of studying that everything is not strictly prescribed and that I have choices myself. In addition to the university, there is also a huge range of sports and university groups. Whether individual or team sport, there is something for everyone and you can also get involved in the many different university groups. Social life is by no means neglected :).

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

Karlsruhe is the perfect place to study for me - you can reach everything by bike, there are a lot of student-friendly restaurants, dozens of bars with low prices, the campus is perfectly located in the city center and borders the palace gardens ... I would always go back decide for Karlsruhe.

Ingo Z. is studying industrial engineering for a master’s degree

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

Right after graduating from high school, I didn't know what to do. But since I am interested in technology and enjoy a wide range of tasks and many opportunities, WiIng seemed to me to be a good choice. I made further inquiries, identified future occupational fields and ultimately decided on this course as well. That I came to KIT here was ultimately more of a coincidence. Still, I'm very happy that I made it here.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

I think the solidarity and the sense of community in our degree program are really outstanding, hardly comparable. Most fellow students identify with the term WiWi, stand up for each other and help each other.Right from the start, you get the feeling of being part of a huge community that gives you support in the face of difficulties in your studies. To this day, I have never regretted joining our student council. I have really never worked with such motivated and committed people, organized events for other students or tried to continuously improve our degree program. Of course, the course content is also interesting. Depending on where your strengths lie, you get along better or worse with the material, but in the end everything is doable.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

What I particularly like about Karlsruhe is that the city is generally kept very compact and everything, really everything, can be easily reached by bike. I also find the division into north, east, south and west of the city very amusing, as everyone identifies with their own district. The weather here in Karlsruhe is actually always good, there are seldom days when the sun cannot be seen at all. If you want to go around the houses in the evening, there are many different possibilities to go out to party after all that learning

Vera M. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

Since I have a lot of fun organizing and planning, I wanted to do something in the direction of project management and then learned that most of them study industrial engineering for this purpose. Since chemistry is not my greatest strength and does not play a major role for us, I chose KIT. Plus, it just has a great reputation!

What do you particularly like about your studies?

I think it's great how diverse you can get involved. I also like how open all students are. You meet nice new people everywhere. I enjoy my time and like to travel a lot. I see university primarily as a social happening.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

It's nice and warm here, and the university and students shape the whole cityscape. Our city oasis aka SchloGa is really a great thing. I like KIT as a campus university and the proximity to France. The most important thing in the course is still the nice fellow students.

Chiara P. is studying industrial engineering as a master

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

After graduating from high school, I thought about what to study for a long time. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to go in the economic or the technical direction. That is why I decided on the course, which in my opinion combines both and also gives you the freedom to focus on your own.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

At KIT you have the basic course in the first 3 semesters, after which you have the opportunity in the last semesters, in the advanced course, to choose your modules independently and thus take strengths and preferences into account.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

Karlsruhe offers everything a student city should have to offer. There are enough clubs, bars and restaurants to go out in the evening. In summer you can sit comfortably in the large castle garden and have a picnic or go to the surrounding lakes. The biggest advantage, however, is that Karlsruhe is just big enough to easily reach everything by bike.

Jennifer W. is studying industrial engineering as a bachelor

Why did you choose this course at KIT?

Deciding what to study right after graduation, let alone which profession to pursue, is quite difficult for most of them. It was the same for me, but after some searching, I came across the industrial engineering course, which offers me a good insight into various fields and also gives me the opportunity to deepen myself in certain directions during the course of my studies.

What do you particularly like about your studies?

After the second semester, I can say that the course really does what it says on the tin and gives a wide range of insights into technical and economic subjects. In addition, I am glad that I chose KIT! The cohesion here is unique not only within one's own year, but also across semesters and makes things easier in everyday student life.

What distinguishes Karlsruhe as a (student) city?

Karlsruhe is a pretty green city (if you disregard the construction sites) and besides the large palace garden it also has other beautiful spots. In addition, Karlsruhe is the ideal size: everything important can be reached by bike within 15 minutes and the university is also fairly central.
