In addition to traditional core areas of mechanical engineering, cross-technology and interdisciplinary key topics play a decisive role for mechanical engineers in today's working world.

Why study industrial and organizational psychology?

Engineers must be able to recognize, understand and shape the context of their working environment and that of their employees. This includes all questions of work organization, work processes and people in the workplace, especially in the interaction with technical systems. Whereas in the past, engineering graduates either did not have the associated skills and knowledge at all or only by chance, today they are a natural requirement for every mechanical engineering graduate. Occupational and organizational psychology is therefore an important part of a present- and future-oriented engineering education. Of course, this content is also of great importance for later professional life in other degree programs and is therefore open to other graduates in accordance with the study regulations.
