System Engineering & Engineering Management

Thanks to Fachhochschule Sudwestfalen, Germany.


The central aims for the course "Systems Engineering and Engineering Management" arise out of the changed catalogue of requirements in the area of engineering. Changing working procedures and rationalised processes force engineers to be more and more involved with organisational duties. Key qualifications like team and group work, project organisation, communication and presentation thus become steadily more important as parallel skills and activities alongside the classical technical spectrum of requirements. These requirements can be conveyed by combining the fields of engineering, management, and economics.


The course offers four different pathways: Electronics, Mechanical, Mechatronics and Renewable Systems. Students taking the Electronics pathway will take two electronic modules. Likewise students taking the Mechanical pathway will take two mechanical modules. Students taking the Mechatronics pathway will take one mechanical and one electronic module. Students taking the Renewable systems pathway will take three modules in the field of energy management and generation.
