History in a nutshell
In 1998, the study program Global Production Engineering (GPE) was the first international postgraduate master program of the TU Berlin. The program was started with a particular focus on the education of bachelor engineers in the engineering and management of production technologies. Soon it became evident to adjust our course portfolio to meet the demands of the ever-growing solar industry.
In 2008, GPE divided its courses into two specializations: GPE Manufacturing and GPE Solar Technology.
In 2015, the focus of GPE Solar Technology was expanded to further renewable energy technologies such as wind, hydropower or bio energy. The specialization was re-named to GPE New Energy Technologies.
Scope of GPE
The Global Production Engineering program from TU Berlin promotes technical competencies in production engineering disciplines, global value creation, development of manufacturing processes and tools, factory planning, production control, logistics and global supply chain management, sustainability, modeling and simulation, quality control, technology management, economic evaluation and global management. The degree program offers comprehensive qualification in booming renewable energy technologies, such as photovoltaics, wind energy and hydropower. Relevant aspects from the production of renewable energies components, up to management, financing, law and marketing aspects are addressed.
