Global Production Engineering Digital

Global Production Engineering (GPE-D) is an online graduate program offered by the Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin, Germany. Is it the digital version of the Master Program "Global Production Engineering" and can either be studied in full-time in four semesters or in part-time.

The program is largely location and time-independent and thus also enables ambitious employed people to successfully complete their studies.

The curriculum is designed for outstanding international students seeking to improve their personal competence portfolios in the fields of production, engineering, management and intercultural communication.

The program is designed to train manufacturing engineers in state-of-the-art production technologies and management methods of global companies. The planning and design of flexible, adaptable factories is a major educational focus. Production planning and control, process-oriented factory layout through simulation and virtual design are all part of the mix. Designing global supply chains, factory management and project management are key skills required to ensure economic viability and sustainability of manufacturing companies striving to obtain a competitive edge in a constantly changing global context. The GPE program promotes technical competencies in

  • production engineering disciplines,
  • global value creation,
  • development of manufacturing processes and tools,
  • factory planning,
  • production control,
  • logistics and global supply chain management,
  • as well as sustainability.

Particularly relevant for the program is also an adequate knowledge conveyance of IT tools for planning and designing products and processes. The curriculum includes courses on how to work in the field of Industry 4.0. Simulation tools for designing strategies in production planning and control, e.g. Tecnomatix Plant Simulation are taught.

The last twenty years have seen the formation of a global network of alumni. Today GPE graduates are employed as consultants or specialists in the manufacturing industry, e.g. for automotive, electric, electronics, aircraft and food processing. GPE graduates also shape their professional careers in non-profit organizations and governmental institutions as well as in research and development.
