Program description

M.Sc. Networked Production Engineering

In a globalized world, networking is tool. Build your own toolkit for success!

Graduates in specialized fields of expertise are immensely sought after. Through three individual focus areas or tracks, prospective students can obtain technology-related qualifications in a highly interdisciplinary Master's program: Additive Manufacturing, Smart Factory, and E-Mobility Production.

Smart Factory

Building "Smart Factories" means networking all plants, products and processes in a self-organizing factory. This is a central component of "Industry 4.0" and will be used in numerous sectors such as chemistry, automotive and electrical engineering. Within these networked production processes, qualified graduates play an essential role: They act as problem solvers, experience bearers and decision-makers.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing processes are among the major topics of production technology that will significantly influence product development and production. There is a high level of industrial, intersectional and international significance attached to additive manufacturing processes in production technology, which is closely linked to a strong demand for qualified personnel in the area.

Electric Mobility Production

The electrification of propulsion systems has developed into a global trend, which extends from container ships and aircrafts to the automotive industry. The challenges and opportunities of e-mobility are very diverse: With mechanical engineering as one of the key players in technological change, suppliers and manufacturers will need skilled engineers with interdisciplinary expertise in the interface of e-mobility.
