Project Engineering

Electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and project management meet management skills

Anyone who likes to organise, is a tech head and aims to take responsibility for technical projects with regard to industry 4.0, data networking and digitisation will be enthusiastic about the Project Engineering course. In an ideal combination of theoretical phases at the DHBW Mannheim and practical units with their corporate partner, our students acquire interdisciplinary know-how preparing them for a steep career path – in any industry and around the world. And all this on a state-of-the-art campus with laboratories and workshops where they can conduct research, experiment and carry out exciting projects.

Fit for industry 4.0 with the Bachelor of Engineering

Projects have a beginning with a clearly defined goal, follow a sometimes complex course, and then come to an end or continue on into subsequent projects. This involves experts from different disciplines – sometimes three, sometimes three thousand. Who maintains the overview? Project engineers. They manage and organise technical projects and keep communication going, i.e. they form the core control centre that controls the individual processes. In order to successfully fulfil this task, our students acquire the relevant fundamental knowledge from mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, automation, theory of industry 4.0, digitisation, project management, business administration, conflict management as well as negotiation and leadership skills. Since companies, some of which operate internationally, require good foreign language skills, this content is also reflected in the curriculum.

The reality of the working world starts with us in the lecture hall

The strong practical relevance of this course is clearly demonstrated by our extraordinary study projects, which range from electrically powered racing cars to waste heat utilisation technology and, in addition to increasing knowledge, provide our students with many key experiences. In the simulation games, a class can be transformed into a complete company with different hierarchical levels in order to solve a task as authentically as possible.

A concept that is well received. For its innovative study profile and future-oriented approach, Think ING chose ours as Course of the Month August 2018.
