Teamwork in the Engineering Management degree

Practical experience

What I associate with my studies at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences above all is the practical relevance: Theoretical learning content was implemented in the very well-equipped laboratories. My semester abroad at Kettering University, USA and my internship in Detroit helped me a lot in the area of intercultural skills. Many companies today are globally represented and you have contact with people from different cultures several times a day.
