Born in 1951, Bruegge received a bachelor's degree in computer science at the University of Hamburg in 1978, a master's degree in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1982 and a PhD degree in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1985.

Bruegge has been a professor at the Technische Universität München in Munich since 1997. From 2000 to 2003, he was a member of the Deutsche Telekom research committee. He has been a member of the research committee of Munich district (German: Münchner Kreis), a nonprofit association, since 2003 and member of the CIO Colloquium scientific advisory board since 2009. Bruegge is also the liaison professor for the German National Academic Foundation (German: Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes).


His principal research areas are Modeling and semantics, Computational intelligence and Machine learning, Knowledge Management and representation, Process support and human factors, and Process models and methodologies
