It teaches you important methods and current trends in engineering and supplies you with theoretical knowledge of areas such as digital systems, energy technology or IT. Projects such as “Systemsimulation” allow you to apply your practical skills. A wide range of electives allows you to follow your interests. 

Specialisation tracks

To give you guidance when choosing your modules, we have put together a number of possible specialisations. If you want to assemble your modules completely freely, you can do so as well.

Careers

Your professional future with a bachelor’s degree in Engineering

If you want to start your career in engineering right after graduating, you have a lot of exciting options. You can choose from a wide range of engineering jobs and might work as … 

Product Development Engineer

Develop new products, expand their function range and analyse performance – as a product development engineer, you’re always busy. What your tasks look like in detail depends on the sector you want to work in. You might go for electric vehicles, renewable energies or consulting. 

Simulation engineer

As a simulation engineer, you develop simulation models such as digital twins. Your tasks might also include drawing up mechanical or electric systems in mechatronics or robotics. You pick the sector you want to build a career in. Sophisticated simulation systems are needed in many areas. 

Cyber Security Engineer

If you care about data protection, you become a cyber security engineer to improve network security. You examine systems, identify security loopholes and figure out how to close them. Your work contributes to the improvement of industrial IT infrastructure. 

Tuition fees

Study model and prices for the Bachelor's online study programme in Engineering

Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That is why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our degrees, which offer flexible and longer study periods. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The content of the different models is identical. Depending on the study model, we will adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time variants, your weekly study workload is reduced.

Can't finish your degree in the allotted time? No problem! We will develop the right study model for everyone. If you realise that you need more time, you can easily switch to another study model with three months’ notice before the end of the month. These are our different study models:
