Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Production Engineering and Management

International course of studies with a double degree in the OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Master of Science ( M.Sc.)) and the Università degli Studi di Trieste (Laurea magistrale (LM)). Students acquire the necessary technical and economical knowledge to be professionals and executives in internationally operating companies.

Medium-sized, manufacturing companies are increasing their international activities. Executives, as well as qualified professionals, must therefore be able to operate in this environment and make strategic decisions. The international master's program starts here and trains technically oriented specialists and managers for medium-sized, manufacturing companies (SMEs).

The focus of this Master's program is in the manufacturing industry, such as the wood industry, but also in the field of metal and plastics processing. Professors impart the students, both technological competence as well as business management, logistical and process-oriented knowledge. In addition, they acquire skills along the operational value chain in the areas of product development, technology, organization, logistics, information technology and business administration. Internationally required key qualifications are integrative and additively included.


Graduates have career prospects as technically oriented specialists and executives in internationally operating medium-sized manufacturing companies.
