Engineering Sciences

The engineering sciences see themselves as applied sciences. The main focus is on the practical implementation of scientific findings in the technical development and design of technical products.

In many cases, engineering sciences are not understood as exact sciences in the true sense of the word. Too many of the basic principles that occur in the practical application of natural sciences are too complex in their combination to be calculated exactly. That is why the engineering sciences try to find practicable methods to master the technical processes safely.

The introduction of computer technology has fundamentally changed the engineering sciences. The design process is now supported by the computer and many experiments that were previously unavoidable can now be replaced by numerical simulations on the computer.

German engineers have a good reputation worldwide.  - Incidentally, the majority of this reputation can be traced back to graduates of universities of applied sciences: According to the Institute of the German Economy in Cologne and the Federal Statistical Office, 60 percent of all German engineers have completed their studies at a university of applied sciences.
