6cp; 3hpw (collaborative workshop)


In times of digital transformation, advanced manufacturing and robotics, the effective use of both automation and human resources becomes very important. Fundamental to this challenge, Industrial Engineering addresses planning and designing industrial production and associated working conditions. Students are equipped with methods and tools to plan, design, optimise and evaluate working and production systems, including tools and machinery, as well as workers’ roles and conditions in the production process. The main elements are the structure and standardisation of products and workflows, development of assembly concepts, planning material supply, and feasibility studies. Students are able to design productive and efficient working systems and processes. This includes executable and safe working conditions as well as adequacy of work content, task, environment and collaboration.
