Choice of two specialisations
Students receive training in manufacturing and intelligent machinery with a view to optimising production. The curriculum covers topics such as the industrial application of efficient and user-friendly human-machine interaction and shop-floor IT, using mobile hardware and the latest 3D and virtual reality technologies. There is also a strong emphasis on small and medium-sized enterprises as suppliers and users of smart production methods.
The concept of networking in industrial manufacturing takes centre stage in this specialisation. Students learn about internal and external production processes, as well as the implementation of distributed and networked production plants, systems and processes, which are examined from the perspectives of industrial security and automated production.
