Language skills

The courses and lectures of the Master’s degree programme in Engineering and Production Management are taught partly in German and partly in English. If you are proficient in German and English at level B2 you should have no problem following the classes. Please send us a certificate evidencing your German and English language skills unless these are included in your secondary school leaving certificate or similar diplomas.

Specific requirements

Since the Master’s degree programme in Engineering and Production Management is a co-op course, applicants need to provide evidence of 15 months professional experience in a company. The work carried out as part of individual internships or an employment relationship should have focused on production engineering or product/process development and primarily involved engineering and/organisational tasks.

The co-op study mode means that theoretical education at the university alternates with practical training at a partner company. If you have not yet established contact with a partner company at the beginning of your studies, we will be glad to help you find a suitable company. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries concerning co-op study.
