Learning outcomes from the WING degree
Your qualifications and skills after completion of the degree programme are closely linked to the “qualification framework for engineering and management”*:
- You will understand the economic, political, social and legal framework conditions of the economy and be able to evaluate these (evaluation skills in a social and economic environment).
- You will be able to make rational and ethically justified decisions and think critically to find innovative and effective solutions for qualitative and quantitative problems across a number of areas (ability to think critically/laterally).
- You will be able to work with people in different situations and in an interdisciplinary environment across a number of subject areas effectively and constructively (ability to collaborate and work in teams).
- You will be able to identify complex sociotechnical tasks within an economic context and resolve these in an interdisciplinary, holistic manner using methods of Systems Engineering (interdisciplinary problem solving skills).
- You will be able to use relevant research methods and new findings in engineering and economics to work on practical tasks taking into account economic, ecological, technical and social requirements (transfer skills).
- You will have in-depth knowledge of the principles of information and communication technology and a broad basis and overview of methods and concepts within information systems and will be able to use modern information technology effectively (IT skills).
- You will be able to articulate logically and convincingly orally and in writing and to communicate with specialist colleagues about content and problems within the respective discipline in an intercultural manner, including in foreign languages (communication skills).
- The high level of practical relevance of your degree means that can integrate into the professional environment and work with partners at different levels (social skills).
- You will be able to analyse your own culture and other cultures and critically reflect on this. You will be aware of the impact of culture on day-to-day communication and will be familiar with the basic terms of intercultural communication and its use, including in intercultural teams (intercultural skills).
