Program contents and profile

Mechanical engineers are significant pioneers for progress and development in the field of industrial production. Germany as a location for business is characterized by excellent industrial production and scientific research at international level. Due to the increasing complexity of mechanical engineering developments a comprehensive understanding of the coherences within and between the individual fields of mechanical engineering is essential. Owing to an increasing globalization in the production sector cross-cultural communication has become a decisive criterion for success. English being the language of instruction, students become prepared for the integration in international networks. The Master's program "Master of Science in Manufacturing Technology" equips students with detailed knowledge, skills, and competences in the field of interdisciplinary production engineering. Researching learning represents a key component in this context. For this purpose, students are offered lectures and courses at different chairs and institutes of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Thanks to the program's language being English and its international structure as well as due to the close cooperation with renowned industrial companies students receive the best possible preparation for a professional career in the production sector.

Program structure

During the first two semesters students will gain profound knowledge in machining technology, materials science, and forming technology. In addition, students chose three elective modules according to their personal interests. The third semester is characterized by project and laboratory work, teaching students the competence of applying theoretical knowledge in practical applications. The module "Interdisciplinary qualification" is geared to impart soft skills as well as language skills in order to prepare students for their later profession.
