To meet the growing challenges and opportunities in a globalized economy, the need for leaders with international perspective increases. In order to take global leadership in the dynamic world economy, knowledge in technological innovation, scientific solution spaces, comprehensive management and intercultural skills are necessary. GPE accepts the challenge to comprehensively train engineers for work in international value chains with its program structure consisting of five modules production, engineering, management, intercultural communication and special profile. A GPE intake is composed of approx. 30 students – per study major. The students come from about 15 different countries and all continents.
The global village comes in together - in the classes of GPE. Thus students learn on concrete examples of how technological leadership through global products and processes with local specifications can be achieved.

All professors of TU Berlin have excellent skills in research and teaching, extensive industrial and leadership experience and intercultural skills. The International pool of lecturers composed of worldwide leading academics and senior industry representatives allows the interplay between research and industrial practice. The mechanisms of innovation and diffusion of new technologies is discussed in class and case studies are analyzed together with the lecturers. Best practice experiences of lecturers with industry background will facilitate the transfer of the learned knowledge to real cases.

GPE students learn in groups of average 15-20 students per class. This gives teachers the opportunity to respond individually to the students' training interest. Education topics can be discussed in class and project-oriented teaching can be carried out with moderation by the lecturer in small groups. This in contrast to mass lectures guarantees maximum learning progress and individual preparation for the final exam. Many of the tests are then carried out as an oral discussion with the lecturer. We guarantee that no student is lost and that together the students achieve the high quality standards and demanding academic goals.

Teaching is carried out as much as possible within the framework of practice-oriented exercises in the laboratory. For this, an experimental field of more than 3500 m2 is located at the Production Technology Centre (www.ptz-berlin.de). This includes state-of-the-art production technical equipment and laboratories for Sustainable Manufacturing and Solar Technology. At the RENAC (www.renac.de) a laboratory is available for the Renewable Technology training. In addition, all students have at their disposal modern computer work spaces for the implementation of IT-based classes, such as calculations, programming and simulations.

GPE graduates attain their career goals with above average success compared to other engineering programs graduates. The Technische Universität Berlin with its worldwide reputation and GPE with its 15 year tradition of training are known as trademarks by the companies. Human Resource representatives of Germany's leading industrial companies regularly hold presentations to GPE students to recruit graduates for a career in their companies. Companies get in contact with our students at career fairs and through internships and master theses during their period of studies. In some cases, even before graduation, the companies offer attractive work contracts to the students.
When compared to other countries, such as U.S. or England, in Germany GPE Master graduates easily obtain a visa in order to find an employer after graduation or to start a job (www.anerkennung-in-deutschland.de).

Most universities in Germany have not the right to award PhD titles in Engineering. These universities also offer good master programs, but if graduates want to do a PhD, they must then apply to a different university, for example, one of the „Technischen Universitäten“(www.tu9.de). The TU Berlin belongs to the group of universities where a PhD can be done. GPE students have the advantage to work together with their potential PHD supervisors already during their master studies. Therefore compared to other master program students, many GPE students work as research engineers on their PhD title after they graduate.

Not only we Berliner do like our city – please get information from your friends or in the media about your host city, i.e. you find “Top 10 Reasons Why Berlin is the Greatest City on the Continent” under: www.europeupclose.com/article/top-10-reasons-why-berlin-is-the-greatest-city-on-the-continent/.
Also interesting might be, that Berlin is usually ranked as one of the cities with the highest quality of life, i.e. have a look under www.monocle.com/specials/35_cities .
Berlin is among the largest and most diverse scientific areas in Europe. Berlin has the most students (about 150,000) and is home to Germany's largest concentration of scientific institutions (http://www.businesslocationcenter.de/academy).

Since the early industrialization, Germany is among the leading manufacturers of technical solutions for mobility, energy and manufacturing equipment. 1200 companies act as worldwide market leaders, amongst others in the field of automobiles, aircraft, trains, photovoltaic cells, wind generators, steam turbines, robotics, machine tools or construction of special-purpose machinery and represent the high competence of German Engineers (http://www.berndvenohr.de/dwmf/english). International engineers with German expertise and knowledge of the local conditions in their home country are sought by German companies to work as intermediaries in technological innovation.

The innovative strength of the engineers is the strongest competition factor in Germany. The close links between university hands-on teaching and its application to technology leading companies is therefore of great importance. Many professors of TU Berlin lead departments of the Fraunhofer Institute (www.fraunhofer.de). During their studies, from the 2nd semester on, GPE students work on projects with problems from industry and practice. This is followed by the internship, in which students go through two to six months in the various corporate functions. In their master thesis, the students demonstrate that they can theoretically analyze a problem from the industry and autonomously implement a solution into practice.

In international rankings, TU Berlin is generally ranked among the top five technical universities in Germany. The TU Berlin has about 28,000 students and it is the most popular technical university in Germany among students. In research, particularly in production technology and energy technology, the TU Berlin is generally ranked among the top 5 research universities in Germany, e.g. in 2009 ranked place four after RWTH Aachen, TU Munich and TU Dresden (www.destatis.de).

GPE graduates also keep contact with each other after graduation. In summer and winter, we celebrate a graduation ceremony, where alumni and students congratulate the new graduates. Our alumni have been active for years in the conference series "Sustainable Manufacturing" having met in India in 2009, Abu Dhabi in 2010, Russia in 2011 and Turkey in 2012. They are also networked together through Facebook, LinkedIn and Yahoo for job offers, business cooperation and research projects.
