With the setting up of the Business Engineering degree course, the ASW Saarland University of Cooperative Education has reacted to the needs of the training companies for well-qualified young people in technical and natural sciences and business. These engineers can adopt an integrative role at the interface between technology and business and experience a high degree of practical orientation in the course of their study.
In the Business Engineering degree course, the core competences from both study areas of the ASW Saarland University of Cooperative Education are merged for the design of a course of study that with its integrative approach is more than the sum of its parts.
Objective of the degree course
The objective of the Business Engineering degree course is to train practically oriented engineers in three years who at the sensitive interface between technology and business in the company keep the costs, the sales, the market and the technical feasibility in mind and who coordinate and improve these partially competing areas.
The dual or two-track training concept of a university for cooperative education is ideally suited for this purpose.
After the three years of study, the graduates have the necessary knowledge in the areas of mechanical engineering and business administration and overall interrelated subjects such as project management, logistics, controlling, technical sales as well as basic professional experience that cannot be obtained in this specific form in any other course of studies.
The imparted study contents in the theoretical phases are shown in the following illustration.
