German International University of Applied Science (GIU AS) offers Industry-focused and Future-oriented Study Programs taught in English in cooperation with the German Founding Universities of Applied Sciences.

English is the Teaching Language

Automotive Engineering Program

Automotive engineering is one of the most thrilling, challenging and rewarding careers. Automotive engineers research, design and develop vehicles and their subsystems. They work with sophisticated technologies to be able build products that thrill the senses and bring the autonomy of mobility to the world.

Automotive Engineering helps students understand and have a whole view of the different optimal interactions of various mechanical and electronic components that help in building advanced electric driven cars, trains and other transportation means. Automotive Systems Engineering Focuses on the entire vehicle: from drivetrain to engine and transmission technology, chassis and vehicle bodywork with body and interior to electrics / electronics.

It also improves production possibilities and economic efficiency, but at the same time also recyclability and environmental compatibility and not least vehicle safety play a major role.

The design, development and testing of vehicles of all kinds lies at the heart of the degree program of Automotive Engineering. The Program in Automotive Engineering helps in learning:

  • How to plan, design, program, measure, control, monitor and simulate new vehicle developments
  • The necessary know-how from the areas of mechanics, electronics and computer science, which enables you to be at the forefront of key developments in the motor or electric driven vehicle
  • How to engage in interdisciplinary thinking and acting in teams with different specialists.

Mechanical Engineering Program

Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering by which students apply the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It also involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, operation of machines and tools and production.

Mechanical engineering is one of the largest industries and employers internationally.

The Program in Mechanical Engineering helps in learning:

  • The development and construction of new machines and plants.
  • How you can combine innovative technologies with solid mechanical engineering fundamentals.
  • How to combine your knowledge from different technical sciences into trend-setting solutions.
  • Students receive knowledge of mechanical engineering in addition to the engineering fundamentals, which include the production of metals and plastics

Automation and Robotics Engineering Program

Automation and Robotics – the technology of the future! It solves the problems of today and develops the products of tomorrow. Also helps in forming the bridge between mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science. That's why our students learn methodically and across disciplines to solve technical problems.

The Program qualifies students to describe model and simulate complex technical relationships with mathematical and technical foundations of mechanics, electrical engineering and computer science and thus make a significant contribution to the development of mechatronic systems consisting of sensors, actuators, information processing and the mechanical structure including communication technology and human machine interface with a special focus is on robotics and its applications.

With a degree in automation and robotics, you are well prepared for current and future development tasks in the national, regional and globally active industry.

Electrical Engineering Program

Electrical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity. Electrical engineers work on variety of components, devices and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators. Electrical engineering has two significant pillars which are “Information" and "Electrical Energy". The focus will be upon control engineering and energy systems laying a sound basis for renewable energy processes. Students work in teams on real projects.

The Program in Electrical Engineering helps in learning:

  • how to plan, design, program, measure, regulate, monitor and simulate electronic systems
  • practical and with contacts in the industry already during your studies
  • subjects such as business administration, work techniques and project management in order to qualify for future management tasks.

The Electrical Engineering Program will make our graduates fit for a future-proof job with an interesting and diverse range of tasks.

Manufacturing Engineering (Production and Process Management)

Join us in the whole in production technology! The study program Production and Process Management will give you the chance and prepares you for a job at the interface between technology and business.

Production is a gradual process of transformation of inputs (resources) into outputs - production process. The production process is typical to the secondary sector of the market - manufacturing and industry. Production is closely related to planning, logistics and quality management.

Production and Process Management students will be introduced to the following:

  • In-depth basic engineering education with innovative content focusing on production
  • Cost Consideration
  • Achieve optimal efficiency through the Implementation of operational IT systems
  • Designing and optimizing business processes
  • Qualification for interdisciplinary project work and communication in an international context

Aims of PPM Course:

  • Prepare the students for a job at the interface between technology and business.
  • Provides all those key qualifications that enable graduates to gain planning and managerial positions.
  • Allows students to work together with the greatest possible degree of freedom to work on an industry-related project task, to produce deliverable products.
  • Convey a practical impression of a holistic value-added chain as well as to further develop important social skills already during the study.
