Bachelor of Industrial Engineering Industry 4.0


Program Description

What digitization potential is there in production or logistics? How do you develop solutions for manufacturing the self-driving car? Industrial engineers deal with such questions and ensure that Germany maintains its global leadership role in the digitalization of industry. In the distance learning industrial engineering industry 4.0 we prepare you with a mixture of business administration know-how and specialist knowledge for this demanding task. We also attach particular importance to a high practical relevance. Tasks in our virtual laboratories are part of your studies during the entire study period.

What are virtual laboratories?

Our virtual laboratories are practical tasks that you can simulate, model or calculate with special software tools, or solve them with the Arduino kit provided. You receive the kit consisting of an Arduino microcontroller and some accessories such as sensors and LEDs from us at the beginning of the distance learning. The work in the virtual laboratory takes place in the following modules:

  • Electrical engineering
  • Manufacturing process Industry 4.0
