Our motto: The worst thing is not to change anything!

1.) Our goal at PEP:

The Master's course in Process Engineering and Production Management (PEP) aims to train highly qualified young professionals for management positions in the planning, design and management of process and manufacturing technology production areas. The standard period of study for the course is three semesters.

2.) Our advantages for PEP:

  • Uniform combination of lectures and seminars
  • Independent work in small project groups (2 to 5 persons)

  • Direct handling of design, planning and analysis tools

  • Three lectures and seminars in English

 

3.) Course objective and admission to PEP:

The Master's course in Process Engineering and Production Management (PEP) aims to train highly qualified young professionals for management positions in the planning, design and management of process and manufacturing technology production areas. The standard period of study for the course is three semesters.

The focus of the education is both the acquisition of an in-depth theoretical understanding and the learning of common industrial management techniques as well as the use of computer-aided development and planning tools.

Graduates of this Master's course acquire a qualification comparable to a university degree. They have the option of a subsequent doctorate as well as access to the career path of the higher civil service.

The entry requirement for the Master's degree course in Mechanical Engineering - Development is an above-average university degree of (Bachelor of Engineering) Mechanical Engineering, Process-, Energy- and Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Hochschule Hannover – University of Applied Sciences and Arts or a comparable university degree.

 

4.) Course structure of PEP:

The course comprises two theory semesters (A and B) and the 3rd semester with a practical project and master's thesis. The course offers two specialisations: Process Engineering (focus point: Process Engineering PE/VT) and Production Management (focus point: Production Engineering PM/FT).

Semester A contains modules for mathematical-engineering specialisation from the fields of engineering mathematics and engineering informatics as well as modules for subject-specific competence development from the fields of PE/VT and PM/FT.

Semester B includes modules for general competence development from the areas of process control engineering, international value creation, planning and logistics as well as further modules for subject-specific competence development from the areas of PE/VT and PM/FT.

 

5.) Content-related focus points in PEP:

The PE/VT specialisation focuses on engineering based on process and energy engineering processes. It is therefore primarily aimed at mechanical engineers as well as process and energy engineers. The PM/FT specialisation places particular emphasis on the management of production processes and is therefore primarily aimed at mechanical engineers as well as industrial engineers and production technicians.

Typical for the Master's course in PEP is the almost universal combination of lectures and seminars, in which the focus is on independent work in small project groups (2 to 5 persons). For this purpose, direct handling of the design, planning and analysis tools as well as work on laboratory plants plays a key role in the development and implementation of the theoretical content.

Three lectures and seminars are conducted in English.

Selected, content-related focus points PE/VT:

  1. Dynamic systems
  2. Thermal processes
  3. Heat and mass transfer
  4. Simulation-based design and planning

Selected, content-related focus points PM/FT:

  1. Lean Management
  2. Value-added processes
