Production & Operations Management

  • Abschluss Master
  • Dauer 4 Semester
  • Art Berufsbegleitendes Präsenzstudium

You have made the world your home and are interested in global production, digital transformation in supply chain management and logistics? Then the M. Sc. in Production & Operations Management is the perfect fit for you!

Production technology and supply chain topics shape the future of the manufacturing industry. Major developments in the context of industry 4.0 require highly qualified engineers with comprehensive knowledge of state-of-the-art technology and methods to successfully realize innovative concepts. Only a multidisciplinary approach can meet the requirements of today's interconnected flow of data, products, and money in production and logistics. Fundamental concepts are conveyed for the analysis, design, and realization of innovative concepts for operations management and also for methods of screening the performance of a manufacturing industry.

The master's program also includes an international engineering module in China that is conducted in cooperation with the Global Advanced Manufacturing Institute (GAMI) and the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC) as well as Tongji University.

In addition to the engineering expertise, the program in Production & Operations Management shares five management modules with other Master's programs. This fosters networking across industries and provides the participants with general knowledge in finance, accounting, marketing, international multi-project management, international law, and human resource management. Therefore, participants can consider the commercial implications of project decisions.

Überblick über den Studiengang

Studienverlauf

The part-time Master´s program is organized in 10 modules over a period of 15 months. It consists of five engineering modules and five management modules, each lasting two weeks. The time between modules is typically spent at the participant’s workplace. This allows participants to focus either entirely on their studies or on their jobs, and to continue with their demanding careers while acquiring new skills.

In addition, the program concludes with a Master's thesis, which the participants can either carry out in their company in cooperation with an institute of KIT in the form of an innovative project or only with one of the KIT institutes. The program completes with a Master of Science (M. Sc.) from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with 90 ECTS.
