Production Engineering- Mechanical Engineering & Process Engineering (M.Sc.)

The master’s study program Production Engineering in the Faculty of Production Engineering constitutes a modern engineering education in which, building on the accordant bachelor’s program, students acquire the knowledge, skill sets and capabilities equivalent to the former Diplom-Ingenieur studies. To successfully complete the master’s study program in Production Engineering, students must acquire 90 CP over three semesters resp. 120(CP) over four semesters. Admission to the study program is reserved for students who have graduated from an undergraduate program lasting 6 or 7 semesters (i.e. 180 CP / 210 CP). In order to be awarded the Master’s Degree, students must gain 300 CP incl. including the CPs awarded for their undergraduate study program.

SStudy schedule

The study programs Production Engineering I and II comprise three resp. four study phases accounting for 30 ECTS credit points (depending on whether you are aiming to graduate with 90 or 120 CPs).

Study phase “Specialist field basics�?: Compulsory modules related to the specialist field; only in the four-semester schedule “MScPT II�? with 120 credit points

Study phase “specialist field-specialization�?: Compulsory modules and compulsory electives relevant for your specialist field

Study phase “general compulsory electives�? comprising courses belonging to the compulsory electives area of “Production Engineering subjects�?, the compulsory electives area of General Studies “Management and social science�?, as well as a project assignment undertaken in the area of specialization

Study area “Master’s thesis�? comprising a methods workshop, completion of the master’s thesis and the subsequent viva in study.

specializations / specialist fields

The 27 thematic fields in the Faculty of Production Engineering represent the subjects taught. Combinations of these subjects in the six specialist fields lead to a specialization in the following thematic areas:

- General Mechanical Engineering (AM), Prof. Dr. Marc Avila
- Energy systems (ES), Prof. Dr. Fabio La Mantia (FG30)
- Manufacturing Engineering (FT), Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Carsten Heinzel
- Industrial Management (IM), Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Freitag (FG 20)
- Aeronautical Engineering (LT), Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel S. Herrmann (FG12)
- Materials sciences (MW), Prof. Dr.- Ing. Kurosch Rezwan (FG17)
- Process Engineering (VT), Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Udo Fritsching

It is a registration requirement that students choose a specialist field before taking up studies. However, in subsequent master’s studies they are not obliged to study the same specialist field as in their bachelor’s studies.
