Engineering and Production Management, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
Engineers with the confidence to innovate are in greater demand than ever. Our co-op master degree programme in Engineering and Production Management will prepare you for a managerial role in the production companies of the future – and our academic course incorporating extensive experience of the working world is your key to success.


What materials can be used to build vehicles which are safer yet weigh less? How should the composites in a rotor blade be joined to the steel foot section? Methods and solutions to production technology issues are the focus of the Master’s degree programme in Engineering and Production Management. The topics covered range from specific calculation methods through production techniques to the use of robotic systems. We’ll provide you with the necessary expertise to use the latest manufacturing and process technologies.

The co-op Master’s degree programme allows you to consolidate what you have learnt while working at your training partner company. You have the opportunity to specify your particular areas of interest while, at the same time, laying the foundation for your subsequent Master's thesis. Together with your personal supervisor you can prioritise the following topics according to your own interests:

  • Production technologies
  • Energy and environmental technology
  • Technology and innovation
  • IT for business and production
  • Management
  • Business management and law

So you can specify the field in which you wish to work in consultation with your training company. Since you’ll be working within the company in an interdisciplinary fashion, you’ll gain in-depth experience in various topics. Our students generally specialise in two or three of the topics listed. The overall focus however remains on applied production technology.

Engineering and Production Management is a demanding degree programme, both in terms of its content and organisation. The university’s lecturers make every effort to cover the subject matter comprehensively and thoroughly in class. Nevertheless it is inevitable that students must work on some of the curriculum content on their own or consolidate their knowledge in their own time. The time required for this varies greatly and often depends upon the student’s particular area of focus. However, during the theoretical blocks, students should reckon on average on two to three hours per day with an additional six to eight hours at weekends.
