The programme is offered in two variants. The standard period of study in the variant "MScPT I" is three semesters with a workload of 90 ECTS credits. This can be chosen if 210 ECTS credits have been earned in the first course of study (Master's entrance qualification), for example in the Bachelor's programme Production Engineering - Mechanical & Process Engineering - at the University of Bremen.
It is also possible to apply for admission to this programme with a first degree with a standard period of study of six semesters (180 ECTS credits). For this purpose, the variant "MScPT II" has to be chosen in the application. Here the standard duration of study is four semesters with 120 ECTS credits.
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:
Aeronautical Engineering ("LT"),
Energy systems ("ES"),
Industrial Engineering ("IM"),
Materials science ("MW"),
Mechanical Engineering (general mechanical engineering, "AM"),
Process Engineering ("VT"),
