Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Overall duration

4 semesters


Each winter term

Language teaching

40 % of the courses are taught in English, the rest is offered in German.

The consecutive Master's program builds on the industrial engineering and economics by passing good bachelor's or a technical college diploma in the field of logistics industrial engineering and comprises 4 semesters.

On the basis of previously acquired knowledge and experience gained in the industry phases students are taught depth knowledge of logistical issues as well as topics of management in an international context. The student gets the opportunity to acquire skills and methods according to the latest scientific findings in the field of logistics. 

The modules of the first three semesters are designed accordingly to these goals. They contain the most important technical issues of the various interdisciplinary aspects of logistics. The fourth semester is dedicated to the master thesis, which should be connected with an applied research or project in the industry at home and / or abroad.

Today's experience has shown that in addition to an individual teacher’s support an accompanying seminar on project management is a necessary help. Therefore the strategic complex real-life projects are recapitulated again and applied in industry case studies in students’ composite groups. Of special significance is a seminar in which the students can exchange their ideas and experiences in the fields of their interest.

The Master's degree program comprises 16 modules with a workload of 6 credit points per module. The modules typically include 4 hours per week. This approach was chosen to facilitate the planning and the interchangeability of modules. A total of 120 credit points is mandatory for the Master.
