Your Bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering & Management career outlook

After completing their Industrial Engineering and Management Bachelor degree (BEng.), our graduates often work in manufacturing companies at the interface between business management and technical functions. Be it in management, engineering or consultancy roles – there are plenty of opportunities for talented professionals in this field.

Solutions Architect

IT systems are becoming increasingly complex and much more powerful. At the same time, optimised efficiency, reliability and safety remain a top priority. As an IT solutions architect, you will be responsible for an entire system’s design in order to manage the increasing number of machines and products that are connected in real-time in the digital age.

Software Engineer in Industry 4.0

As a software engineer, you will plan, create, manage and distribute software systems. You are responsible for the operation and maintenance of products, as well as for quality assurance. You will regularly carry out system tests, evaluate the results and document them, using your knowledge to improve existing systems or create entirely new ones.

Data Scientist

Data scientists are the creative minds behind algorithms. You will structure large amounts of data and compile usable information for your supervisor with the goal of identifying relationships between data sets. You will also carry out analyses to identify new opportunities for productivity and efficiency.

Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • I wanted a career change but still be able to apply the knowledge I've gained to my work.

    Anne-Kathrin Gansebohm

    Online student

  • I chose IU because it is the most flexible of all the online universities I looked at.

    Marie Arnold

    Online student

  • I find data science is an interesting area of science where lots of things have not yet been discovered and development moves fast. That's also why I chose to join the M.Sc. Artificial Intelligence programme which I am currently studying at IU. The programme, tutors, and professors at IU are really accessible. I'm convinced this programme will keep my knowledge current or even create a new trajectory for my career.

Tuition fees

Study models & fees for your Bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering & Management

Depending on your personal or professional circumstances, you may wish to complete your studies as quickly as possible, or you may prefer a more flexible study programme that is less time-consuming. That’s why we offer part-time options for all our study programmes. This allows you to study alongside professional or personal commitments. We adjust your study fees based on your chosen time model.

Are you unable to finish your programme within the given time? No problem! If you realise that you need more time, you can simply switch to another time model with one months’ notice before the end of the month.

No registration or administration fees are charged when you apply for studying – you'll only be charged once your studies have started. If you won't be admitted to a programme because you do not meet the admission requirements, no fees will be charged.
