Nobody builds a car or a refrigerator by themselves – in production processes there are always numerous people and various machines involved.This includes structuring operational activities, coordinating the distribution of the work to be performed by humans and machines, selecting manufacturing processes and planning production workflows.Here, quality assurance and the economic management of the business as a whole always play a vital role.
Our seven semester Bachelor's degree programme Production Engineering and Organisation (PO) offers you an interdisciplinary education providing you with the tools to meet these diverse and complex challenges.In this degree programme, engineering, business studies and organisation are combined with each other in a unique way.You will acquire knowledge about the natural sciences, design engineering and manufacturing, as well as about management, factory planning and logistics.You can use the practical study semester, elective modules, coursework and thesis to tailor your degree to your own interests.
You can also take this degree programme with the Ulm Model
or with in-depth practical experience
