Management & Engineering

Masters Programme

The Management & Engineering Masters programme is focused on the interaction between aspects of management in manufacturing businesses and engineering. The programme also addresses the latest issues in both disciplines, with a key focus on digitisation in production – Industry 4.0.

Both the strategic design and everyday operation of efficient production and logistics processes demand a comprehensive knowledge of the interfaces between engineering, business and management. A deeper understanding of various aspects of engineering is a key factor for success in the management of industrial enterprises. That is why the degree programme combines the acquisition of management skills with an introduction to academic and scientific methods in the field of engineering.

Two profiles – one programme

The Management & Engineering programme offers two options that are tailored to current demands on industry in the era of Industry 4.0 and students’ prior knowledge from their Bachelor degrees. The Production Systems profile is aimed at students with a non-engineering – generally business – undergraduate degree and provides an in-depth introduction to the basics of engineering. The Production Engineering profile, on the other hand, is aimed at students with a technical undergraduate degree – generally engineering or business engineering.

Both profiles offer targeted and relevant training for today’s challenges in production, development and research, always including the key interface with management. Alongside fundamental aspects of engineering, the programme focuses on topics pertaining to digitisation.
