StREaM is the study programme for you if

The English-language, international Bachelor’s study programme StREaM has its roots in industrial engineering. It has a particular focus on sustainability. As a graduate, on the one hand you will have acquired knowledge of the fundamentals of industrial engineering and business administration, whilst on the other hand you will have become familiar with the principles of sustainable development and their importance for the economy and industry as well as the environment and society. 

As a student you will acquire the skills and knowledge that enable you to:

  • identify and analyse problems where engineering and business management overlap and jointly develop solutions to them with others in a team,
  • plan, execute and evaluate projects in terms of sustainability and in the process incorporate specialist perspectives from economics and industry, ecology and society as well as taking into account cultural contexts,
  • successfully communicate, collaborate and cooperate - in an interdisciplinary, intercultural and virtual manner,
  • as well as reflect upon your personal skills development and continuously evolve as an individual.
