Portrait

The Bachelor degree course Production Engineering is a combination of the classical subjects of Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering. Students on this programme learn an holistic approach. They do not focus solely on the products, rather the entire process surrounding their manufacture. They are concerned with the development and design of production systems and the effective deployment of machinery and plant, the application of new information technologies, as well as the people involved in the work process and environmental protection.more » more »

DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The Bachelor degree course Production Engineering is a combination of the classical subjects of Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering. Students on this programme learn an holistic approach. They do not focus solely on the products, rather the entire process surrounding their manufacture. They are concerned with the development and design of production systems and the effective deployment of machinery and plant, the application of new information technologies, as well as the people involved in the work process and environmental protection.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

The career opportunities open to graduates of this Bachelor programme depend to a great extent on the area programme they have chosen and the degree of specialisation in any of the important functional areas of industrial production. This applies equally to component production as well as to assembly and materials production. Central fields of activity include organisation and industrial management, as well as production management. But also the functional areas upstream and downstream of production present graduates with interesting fields of employment: these include development, product design, production planning and control, servicing and maintenance, as well as distribution. The aforementioned fields of activity are to be found in a number of different branches: for example, mechanical and unit construction engineering, the automobile industry, space and aviation, general and luxury food industries, the steel industry, inspection organisations and research institutes.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Students are taught the main scientific engineering foundations of mechanical engineering and process engineering, as well as a broad base of methods used in the engineering sciences with regard to their application in production engineering. By means of exemplary specialist advanced courses, students acquire skills in developing sustainable solutions to engineering problems.

Major fields

The 27 speciality fields encompassed by the Faculty of Production Engineering together with its associated research institutes ensure a wide spectrum of challenging course offers. With regard to teaching, the speciality fields are combined according to areas of specialisation as follows:
Mechanical Engineering (general mechanical engineering)
Production technology in the space and aviation industries,
Process engineering,
Manufacturing (technologies, plant and process evaluation),
Materials science,
Energy systems.
Students are free to choose their own area of specialisation.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

Practical

Applicants for the programme must provide evidence that they have completed an 8-week workshop oriented practical (basic practical) before commencing studies. Within the context of this basic practical, student candidates are to obtain basic knowledge and technical skills in the production, design and processing of workpieces. The training areas are laid down in the practice regulations (Praxisordnung).
During an industrial practical (12 weeks in 7th semester) students are to gain experience in applying the knowledge and skills acquired during their studies. This takes the form of working on an engineering assignment within an operational context.
Furthermore, students are to obtain insights into the technical, organisational and social reality of working practice.

APPLICATION AND ENROLMENT

Recommended abilities/ target groups/ requirements placed on students

Das ingenieurwissenschaftliche Studium stellt hinsichtlich Arbeitsdisziplin und Zeitaufwand hohe Anforderungen an die Studierenden. Wer diesen Anforderungen positiv gegenübersteht und eine Vorliebe für die naturwissenschaftlichen Fächer und technische Zusammenhänge hat, wird das Studium erfolgreich abschließen.

Der Online-Mathe-Brückenkurs unter

https://www.ombplus.de/ombplus/public/index.html?org=unibr

ist zusätzlich zum Mathematik-Vorkurs der Uni eine sinnvolle Vorbereitung auf das Studium.

Admission requirements

General qualification for university entrance or specific higher education entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur, Einstufungsprüfung).

Proof admission requirements

<strong>Vorpraktikum</strong>

Für den Studiengang Bachelor Produktionstechnik ist ein achtwöchiges Vorpraktikum in der Metallbearbeitung erforderlich. Bei der Einschreibung ist ein Nachweis über das Vorpraktikum oder über das Vorhandensein eines Praktikumsplatzes (Praktikumsvertrag) vorzulegen. Beachten Sie dazu bitte unbedingt die <a class="linkimage download" HREF = "http://www.fb4.uni-bremen.de/studiengaenge/produktionstechnik_ba/PraO%20Produktionstechnik-02-15.pdf">Praktikumsordnung</a>.
