Those who are interested in a career in the field of energy and resource efficiency will soon become aware that both a sound technical and economic knowledgebase is necessary. Those who are also interested in renewable energies, engineering and its maintenance, repair and operation in connection with economic viability and project management, are suited to the Bachelor of Industrial Engineering programme. These particular aspects are the focus of this bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering specialising in “Maintenance – Repair – Operation” (MRO) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn in Pfarrkirchen.

A particular emphasis will be on the acquisition of fundamental knowledge in the areas of maintenance, repair and operation engineering and management. This includes topics such as sustainability, renewable energies, process and operation technology, IT in plant and equipment engineering (Industry / Energy 4.0) as well as in leadership, investment and financing, business and operational processes, logistics and in maintenance, repair and operation strategies and planning. A further important component of the programme is the development of language and intercultural competencies, including the specialisation of a particular cultural and economic region.

Course Aim

Modern industrial companies are characterised by a high level of complexity of various technologies and processes. More and more, topics such as energy and resource efficiency as well as the safe operation of processes and procedures are essential aspects of their economic success.

In light of a growing scarcity of resources and the need to limit the effects of climate change, one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is the decarbonisation of industrial societies. The ongoing maintenance and repair of processes and procedures in production as well as energy generation play a crucial role in this.

An intelligent service and maintenance schedule, as well as the organisation of service and maintenance for production and energy generation facilities, help enormously to increase efficiency and thus save energy and resources. Maintenance, repair and operations; manufacturing and assembly; engineering, the efficient planning of internal processes as well as building and property management are thus important components of future industrial society.

MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operation) engineers, industrial engineers with a focus on maintenance, repair and operation engineering and management, are characterised by their role in the safe and efficient operation of industrial processes; from facilities to energy production and / or the processing of raw materials and the energy-efficient management of buildings and properties. In addition to a basic bachelor course in industrial engineering, the programme integrates technical training in the fields of maintenance, repair and operations engineering and management, sustainability and data processing. From the third semester onward, the students have the opportunity to select a focus in the technical or in the management area.

This interdisciplinary-oriented programme with an additional qualification in the area of language and culture is targeted toward engaged people from all over Europe and beyond, who would like to work in the future-oriented field of environment, resource and climate-conscious processes and technologies.

Career Prospects

The range of career prospects and application areas for industrial engineers is extremely extensive. From system configuration, project management and project controlling to innovation management, technical purchasing, sales, organization and logistics to service and maintenance engineering and maintenance management.

This degree offers students a combination of business, engineering and linguistic-cultural course content, providing a solid basis for success in the international environment. This course qualifies graduates to be capable of adapting existing and newly designed processes, methods and technologies so that energy and material resources can be saved. Thereby, future graduates will make a significant contribution to achieving the European Union objective of industrial decarbonisation.

Potential employers can be found in all sectors: from the public sector and public utilities such as electricity, gas, heat and water utilities, to industrial companies carrying out industrial processes for production. In particular, industrial companies in the Bavarian Chemical Triangle which operate a large number of chemical-technical production processes, offer excellent career opportunities for graduates. Furthermore, industrial engineers are professionals in consultancy companies, whilst MRO engineers find excellent employment prospects in power engineering management of large-scale buildings and properties.

The growing renewable energy branch provides graduates of the Industrial Engineering Bachelor programme with excellent opportunities for a secure professional future.

Course Objectives

The Bachelor programme in Industrial Engineering with a focus on “Maintenance Operation and Repair” (MRO) aims to offer a comprehensive interdisciplinary qualification in the knowledge-intensive fields of engineering and business administration through practice-oriented instruction based on scientific methods. It is also the goal of the programme to impart technical, methodological and social competencies which enable graduates to apply scientific knowledge and methods and to act responsibly in both business operations and in society at large as an employee or as an entrepreneur.

The students also gain social and international competencies which enable them to act competently in a complex, intercultural economic landscape; particularly in the energy and resource sector. Against a backdrop of increasing economic internationalisation, international aspects; the development of language competence and at least a one-semester stay abroad are of particular importance.
