In the first two semesters, students gain a deep, theoretical knowledge in the field of manufacturing technology. Furthermore, students choose elective modules according to their individual interests. The second year of study is dedicated to acquiring practical skills by completing the laboratory and scientific (industrial) project work modules. In this way, the understanding as well as the competence of applying the theoretical knowledge in practice is consolidated. In the same way, students shall learn to be able to compare the manufacturing processes currently applied in industry with state-of-the-art developments in specific fields.
Furthermore, students become familiar with organizing and implementing projects with several members. Due to the internationality of the master program, students acquire intercultural competence.
The module Interdisciplinary Qualification allows students to familiarize with the methodology of other disciplines like the humanities, the social or economic sciences.
Competencies acquired in rhetoric and language courses can be applied in everyday working life and contribute to the students´ personal development.
With the final Master´s Thesis, students prove their ability to work on a complex problem independently. Graduates are able to analyze and optimize existing manufacturing processes, evaluate existing production systems, and design new techniques.
Moreover, students can experience the intercultural exchange with classmates from all over the world.
Located in the vibrant Ruhr area, the program excels by its long-standing tradition in manufacturing engineering and the involvement of industrial cooperation, and provides an excellent university training for outstanding, motivated, and committed students within a research-based framework.
The program starts every October.
