Study Systems Engineering for Manufacturing (SEM)

Climate change, limited natural resources, aging society, digitalization, consumer market globalization, labour market changes, our humanity are facing serious challenges threatening not only our wealth but also our living environments. Solutions for these challenges can not be developed by single experts or single scientific disciplines. They require an interdisciplinary and system-oriented view.

Emerging from space craft and telecommunication system design, systems engineering has advanced to a scientific methodology for design, implementation and control of complex technical systems especially for cyber-physical systems. It combined several engineering disciplines and enables its meaningful coordination over the complete lifecycle of a technical system.

Within the systems engineering for manufacturing master program students will get an overview over the utilization of systems engineering methodologies within the design, implementation, and use of products and production systems against the background of the above-mentioned challenges humanity has to face.
