A bachelor’s degree programme usually takes six semesters. The TU9 universities recommend you to continue your studies after the bachelor’s degree and to study for a research-oriented master’s degree. The master’s degree allows you to enter many interesting professions or to embark on a doctorate.
The master’s stage also presents a good opportunity to change universities. Degree programmes in Industrial Engineering are offered at all TU9-universities. Bachelor’s degrees are mutually recognised by all TU9 universities. Nevertheless, there could be special admission requirements for the individual master’s courses.
Because they are not as specialized as other engineers, industrial engineers are employed in a wide range of industries, including major manufacturing industries, consulting and engineering services, research and development firms, and wholesale trade. This versatility arises from the fact that these engineers’ expertise focuses on reducing internal costs, making their work valuable for many industries. For example, their work is important for manufacturing industries that are considering relocating from overseas to domestic sites. In addition, growth in healthcare and changes in how healthcare is delivered will create demand for industrial engineers in firms in professional, scientific, and consulting services. Projected declines in employment in some manufacturing sectors will temper growth for industrial engineers overall.
