Business Information Systems Engineering as an independent discipline has emerged from Business Administration (BWL) and Computer Science. It deals with current practical and scientific questions concerning computer-aided information processing in business. The focus is on the management of operationally relevant information. This includes in particular the planning, development, introduction and operation of enterprise software, but also the use of information technology for innovative business models (e.g. e-business, mobility services).

Basic Study

In the basic study period you will be taught the basics in mathematics, computer science, business administration and business informatics. Subjects like foreign languages expand your soft skills.

The basic study period is completed with the Bachelor preliminary examination.




Main Studies

In the advanced study period, this knowledge is deepened through lectures such as business software, programming of business software, cost and performance accounting.


Supervised Practical Study Project

In the supervised practical study project the acquired knowledge is deepened in practical application. It usually takes place in a company at home or abroad.


Main Studies

In the elective modules Business Information Systems Engineering 1 and 2, Business Administration and Computer Science you can set specific focal points in the 6th and 7th semester.

In the 7th semester you will write your Bachelor thesis in a company. The topic of the thesis is usually determined in cooperation between the university and an external project partner (company). Accordingly, the university and the project partners are jointly supervising the project. The Bachelor thesis is presented in the Bachelor seminar.

Partner Universities

There are further possibilities. Go Australia, for example, regularly organizes information events at the HFT, through which several students have already gone to Australian universities. Furthermore, there are contacts with the Australian research organization CSIRO, which is represented at numerous locations with different research focuses.


In companies of all sectors, business information systems engineering specialists are employed especially at the interface of specialist applications and IT due to their knowledge in both business administration and information technology. Other typical employers are software and consulting companies that offer business software themselves or introduce it to other companies and organizations.
