Management and Production Engineering


In front of a backdrop of intensified international cooperation, the processing of tasks at the interfaces between engineering, ecology and business is becoming ever more complex. This increasingly calls for the integration of technical and economic mind-sets and trained capacity for action. The global struggle surrounding the availability of production resources and the boost to global cooperation between enterprises provided by telecommunication networks increasingly impacts on all branches of production. New forms – often only temporary – of intra- and inter-organizational cooperation are required. This is where the interdisciplinary master’s study program Management and Production Engineering comes to the fore.

The Master's degree in Management and Production Engineering is offered in cooperation with the Departments of Production Engineering (FB4) and Economics (FB7) and offers the combination of elements from the classical subjects of Business Administration and Mechanical Engineering (Production Technology).

Based on a bachelor's degree in Management and Production Engineering(mechanical engineering / production technology), the accredited master's program provides in-depth knowledge of both business administration and mechanical engineering and allows intensive consideration of one of the two main topics "logistics and production management" and "system development and innovation management" from both perspectives. An independent role is played by the "industrial internship" and the module area of ​​the "methods", through which the professional ability is promoted by means of practical experiences and the acquisition of interdisciplinary and supplementary knowledge. Students should be taught integrative knowledge in the degree program Management and Production Engineering and support the development of integrative and interdisciplinary skills.

The study program Management and Production Engineering at the University of Bremen differs from many other programs offered by German universities in the area of management and engineering in that management and engineering contents are awarded equal status. The program is run jointly be the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics since winter semester 2009/2010.
