In the winter semester 2018/19 the Faculty of Engineering Management in conjunction with the Faculty of Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering is offering a new Master’s programme: “Smart Factory”.
It is aimed primarily at graduates with a degree in engineering or a subject which combines technical and business disciplines.
SPECIALISTS IN INDUSTRY 4.0
The Smart Factory Master’s programme trains students to become specialists in the field of Industry 4.0 and on graduation, they have a broad knowledge of engineering, information technology and business management for medium-sized enterprises.
Since intelligent production requires interdisciplinary collaboration in different areas of business, students acquire skills in planning, developing, monitoring as well as in supply, production, procurement and sales & marketing.
The programme focuses on topics such as technology, industry and information technology. It also includes digital business models, organisational development, services computing and “smart production” as well as digital logistics. The whole of “Industry 4.0” is thus comprehensively included in the Master’s degree programme to provide graduates with a solid foundation for their subsequent career.
COURSES CUSTOMISED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF INDUSTRY
The Master’s programme was developed in intensive and detailed discussions with regional companies. Particular emphasis was placed on what companies expect of university graduates and also on the skills and competencies which need to be taught. The “Smart Factory” Master’s programme provides students with the optimum preparation to work in industry, because they learn to understand digitisation and to adjust production steps accordingly.
