Industrial engineering is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes.
Here are Top 5 Universities in Germany to Study Industrial Engineering*:
Since the beginning of 2009, Clausthal University of Technology has been a member of Niedersächsische Technische Hochschule, NTH. Combining the engineering and scientific expertise of Lower Saxony, the University is part of the best technical universities in Germany. Research and education at Clausthal University of Technology are currently focused on Energy and Raw Materials, Natural Science and Materials Science, Economics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering.
The research interests of the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg focus on environment, construction, energy, material and information and communication technology. And thus BTU claims: We live Science. The creation of key technologies through innovation as well as the creation of knowledge through research and education is decisive factors in a global market. It has been highlighted by the European Commissioner for Science and Research, which it will be necessary to develop strong regional poles of research, innovation and education, which are intensively linked to regional as well as to global economic aspects.
The Technical University of Ilmenau, located in the 25,000-inhabitant town of Ilmenau, on the northern slope of the Thuringian Forest, offers as a small university for their students and staff favorable conditions for study and work, which may not necessarily hold their big sisters. Short distances, small seminars and lectures, the possibility of personal contact between students and teachers and effective networking of scientists are just some of them.
Creative inspiration between Rhine and Ruhr: the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is located in the European region with the highest density of institutions of higher learning. Created in 2003 by the merger of the universities of Duisburg and Essen, the UDE is the youngest university in North Rhine-Westphalia and one of the ten largest universities in Germany. As part of this merger the current shape of the engineering faculty has been created; it is unique in Germany. The four existing departments pursue research on a high, internationally recognized level. With about 80 professorships and more than 9,000 students this department belongs to the largest in Germany.
Following a merger of the existing Technical University, the Teacher Training College and the Medical School in the 1993, the University of Magdeburg is one of the youngest Universities in the state. In order to satisfy the challenges arising in a modern information society, the EIT offers a broad range of modern and interdisciplinary program of study, some of which are conducted in close cooperation with the other faculties at Otto von Guericke University and which open up excellent career prospects to our students. In addition, electrical engineering and information technology in Magdeburg stands for research strength and innovative projects.
