Mechanical engineers in production engineering are intelligent forward thinkers. Their strengths include planning ahead. Workflows in production are under cost pressure, as are those across the business. Production engineers monitor manufacturing processes, find the causes of faults, identify potential for improvement and optimise processes in production and logistics along the value chain. They keep documentation and pass on findings to other operational areas. If certain parts of a product don’t fit well into a particular work process, they talk to those involved and try to arrive at a better solution and an optimised workflow. They carry a lot of responsibility, because production has to keep running.
Summary: This is exactly the right study programme for aspiring production organisers.

Basic mechanical training
Get to know our production departments and products
Tool engineering, manufacturing (turning, milling, injection moulding and die casting), quality assurance, product development, procurement, production planning, logistics. After that you’ll work and continue to train in our production process team, which may include a period working abroad. You will experience day-to-day business first hand and take on smaller projects independently.
- And after that?
You’ll enjoy excellent prospects after graduation. You’ll enjoy a challenging and secure job as a production planner with the prospect of becoming a production organiser in middle management. And you will also have the opportunity to train on to receive an MBA. Because even after training, learning remains the key to professional development.
