  • Abstract technical requirements from abstract plans and design drawings and derive the requirements for process design, logistics and purchasing / supplier management.
  • Together with other departments, project the development, optimization or practical use of prototypes, products, tools or systems to be manufactured industrially.
  • Elaborate a supply and demand side management for an energy system (electricity, heating/cooling, gas).
  • Optimize the use of different generation plants from an economic-ecological point of view.
  • To elaborate and apply measures to increase the efficiency of plant components, especially those of thermal energy plants.
  • Analyze existing energy systems and develop concepts for the optimal use of different energy sources.
  • Quantify the effects of renovation measures in buildings on the overall energy system.

Career Prospects

Due to their interdisciplinary education, industrial engineers have a wide range of fields of application. The largest field of activity is in industry, but there is also a significant demand for internationally oriented and economically trained engineers with high networking skills in trade and the service sector. Accordingly, the prospects for graduates of the International Industrial Engineering and Management program are good. 


They are used in various industries such as metal production and processing, mechanical engineering, plastics, services or information technology.


For example, you work as a product developer, process manager, logistics specialist, industrial engineer, project manager, business unit manager or entrepreneur.


Typical tasks include product development and improvement using the latest technologies and materials, control and optimization of production processes or the design of operational networks.

Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.

You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the International Business and Engineering master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country.

If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program.
