Basic information

The Master Degree Program Digital Business Engineering imparts deeper computer science competences in innovative core topics of Business Information Systems. The focus is on engineering methods for IT-based value-added processes as well as the technical and strategic know-how for the comprehensive and pervasive informatization of companies.

Computers and information processing are primary means of production of digitization. Accordingly, this program discusses topics such as service engineering, business process modeling and distributed systems. In addition, students will learn about the integration of novel approaches of computer science in business-relevant strategies.
