International Student Body

An international attitude

The special international composition of the GPE student body that attends GPE each year is the distinguishing feature of the program. The strong international orientation of our program can be seen in the fact that 95% of our students are natives of countries other than Germany. Over 1.400 students from more than 50 different countries already chose "Global Production Engineering" since it has been launched in 1998 and roughly 1.000 students graduated from TU Berlin with a "Master of Science in Global Production Engineering" until 2022 from which 22 percent are female. All courses are taught in English, giving students the option of taking all of their examinations in the English language.

This kind of special mix of students is rarely found in comparable programs. In courses designed for a working environment in the digitalized world, students teach one another how to develop ideas, come up with common solutions, and implement them daily. Thus, their education prepares them for intercultural teamwork to deal with tasks in ever-changing teams – always being supervised by experienced instructors.

The internationality of the student body and assistant professors is a significant element in the educational process. Every year, visiting professors give lectures for GPE; in recent years these have included professors from the University of Michigan, USA; the University of New South Wales, Australia; the Korean Institute of Science and Technology, Korea; the University of Cincinnati, USA; the Rochester Institute of Technology, USA; the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil; Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China; Tongji University Shanghai, China; and Waseda University Tokyo, Japan.
