Special features regarding teaching

In the practice-integrated Bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering, practical phases in the company (eleven weeks) alternate with theoretical phases at the university (twelve weeks). The students prepare themselves for the theoretical phases during the practical phases using didactically prepared self-study materials. The compulsory modules offer a broad education in Engineering in Business Administration and cross-disciplinary qualifications. In three practical modules and as part of the Bachelor thesis, the students carry out practice-related projects.

Special features regarding the international orientation

The International Academic Office of the FH Bielefeld advises students on study visits abroad and financing options and places them at foreign partner universities. The EU programme LEONARDO DA VINCI is also available to promote work placements of graduates in EU countries. Scholarships for periods abroad (e.g. ERASMUS) are available to students, graduates, teachers and non-academic staff from a variety of programmes, among them also the education programmes of the European Union.

Special features regarding research and development

In the department, great importance is attached to the fact that research projects are interdisciplinary and that the scientists involved work together on an interdisciplinary basis.
