to FAQ

Engineering managers are the all-rounders who operate at the interface between the technical and the business levels of a company.
With a Bachelor of Engineering in Engineering Management, you will find varied and interesting work in nearly all sectors of industry and sizes of company.

The foundation courses for our Engineering Management degree programme offer a broad-based, well-grounded range of subjects. For the core courses, students select one of a range of specialisations which include sustainability, logistics and International Studies. Students in the higher semesters can choose from a range of elective courses, such as more mathematics courses, entrepreneurship and language courses. You will gain practical experience during a practical semester, and in laboratory courses and projects, where you will apply your theoretical knowledge to real situations.

Periods of study and/or internships undertaken abroad enhance your already good job prospects. The University cooperates with around 60 partner universities around the globe (in Mexico, USA, China, Singapore, Finland, and many other countries). To enhance the internationalisation of the degree programme, the complete 5th semester is taught in English.

The Faculty of Engineering Management invites you to join it on the Göppingen Campus, approx. 20 minutes from Esslingen. Göppingen is ideal for nature lovers and also offers a wide variety of cultural events and sporting opportunities. The StudiTicket (VVS) makes it easy to reach all the attractions to be found in and around Stuttgart. Many international companies have their headquarter here, and this provides outstanding opportunities for internships, visits and final projects.

The highlights of our collaboration with foreign universities are the
ITESM in Mexico and Tongji University (CDHAW) in China, where you also have the option of taking a double degree.

Our strengths

Our strengths


Engineering Management students form the interface between engineering and management and do not have to opt for only one of these fields. You are familiar with Management and Technology and also with Digitisation and Sustainability. This makes you and the know-how you have acquired particularly valuable assets for any company.

Some of the strengths of the Engineering Management programme on the campus in Göppingen are the emphasis it puts on the issue of sustainability and the four specialisations it offers. One of the highlights is the continuous development of a community of Tiny Houses on its Göppingen campus, which serve as real-world laboratories for laboratory-based courses and also for long-term experiments on a scale of 1:1.

Our teaching is focused and addresses the detail

The team of professors at Esslingen focuses on the latest developments and providing the students with sound knowledge of the fundamentals. This means students on the Engineering Management programme are able to acquire the knowledge base they require. At the same time, the focus on sustainability and the lively exchange of ideas and close collaboration with companies in and around Stuttgart ensure that the topics taught always keep pace with the times. Universities of applied sciences differ from conventional universities in that their teaching is organised in small study groups and has a very high level of practical relevance. Laboratory-based projects and direct contact with professors are a normal part of the curriculum.

Engineering Management programme offers broad range of practical experience

To succeed on the practical level you first have to learn the foundations and acquire theoretical knowledge. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences offers you a practical semester and hence an exciting opportunity to use what you have learned and put your knowledge to the practical test. You establish contacts to important people in industry and develop opportunities to get a foothold on the career ladder. The projects and seminars in our state-of-the-art laboratories provide you with yet more practical experience. In our interdisciplinary projects, you team up with other students and supervising professors to develop pioneering products and inventions from the initial idea through to realisation.

Göppingen campus - a place to study and also to relax

The Engineering Management degree programme is based on our campus in Göppingen, approx. 20 minutes from Esslingen. Göppingen is ideal for nature lovers and also offers a wide variety of cultural events. A whole range of sporting opportunities are also available. These include a free programme of sports including volleyball, football and basketball. If you play a musical instrument, you can become part of the music scene at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences. We have an orchestra and bands, and you are welcome to come along to our rehearsals, which are being held online at the moment. The StudiTicket (VVS) makes it easy to reach all the attractions to be found in and around Stuttgart. Many international companies have their headquarters here, and this provides outstanding opportunities for internships, visits and final projects.

Gain international experience

One of the highlights of the Engineering Management Bachelor’s programme can be the opportunity to take part in a programme abroad. Our exciting options include spending some time at our partner universities around the world. At the ITESM in Mexico or Tongji University (CDHAW) in China, you can also complete a double degree, which means you are awarded not only a Bachelor’s degree from Esslingen but also the degree awarded by the partner university.
