Industrial Engineering and Management - Master

The Master's programme builds on the subjects already known from the Bachelor's programmes and deepens both their economic and technical content. The programme concludes in the 3rd semester with the Master's thesis and qualifies the graduates in these two fields of knowledge. The Master's degree entitles the graduates to do a doctorate and enables them to take on demanding tasks in industry, as the foundations for later management tasks are laid during the course of the study. The course of study prepares students for careers that require a higher qualification as an industrial engineer. It is aimed at the training of responsible persons in specialist and management positions in commercial enterprises and of young scientists. Upon successful completion of the Master's degree program, the academic title Master of Science (Industrial Engineering and Management), abbreviated M.Sc., is awarded. This degree offers the entry into a doctoral program, which can be carried out at the TU Kaiserslautern either in the technical faculties or in the Department of Economics.
