Transportation Planning and Operation (Master)

The master course Transportation Planning and Operation explores the interdependence between transport and mobility, as well as the scope for design in both areas. General and specific aspects relating to modes of transport are dealt with in a hands-on way. The emergence of transport from mobility needs is examined, whose characteristics and ramifications are studied in the most realistic prognosis and simulation processes. Students will be imparted with planning instruments which allow the efficient and enduring design of transportation systems. In this course each mode of transport is examined as a system in itself, as well as in interaction with corresponding areas in society. The fundamentals of planning for design and construction are taught, as well as the operational requirements for the design and control of transport systems and modes of mobility. In this context, students will also learn the legal, commercial, and regional planning aspects related to transport systems.

Admission requirements: Bachelor of Science specializing in engineering sciences (transport systems, civil engineering), or an equivalent qualification recognized the examinations office. You can find further information here.

Aeronautics and Astronautics (Master)

The master course Aeronautics and Astronautics deals with the conception, development, production, and operation of aero- and astronautical systems. Students in this course will be taught to find scientific solutions to demanding problems, and will be prepared for leading roles in industry and science. The content of teaching in this course encompasses all areas relating to the construction and operation of aircraft and astronautical systems. Furthermore, the specialist focal points of the master course and the wide range of options guarantee that each student can develop his or her individual academic and professional profile. The Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics at the TU Berlin has a multitude of teaching and research equipment at its disposal. Alongside various flight simulators – A330/ A340 Full Flight Simulator, SEPHIR and AARES – a number of wind tunnels and structure-testing facilities are also available for teaching and research purposes.

Admission requirements: Bachelor of Science specializing in an appropriate engineering science (transport systems, mechanical engineering, physical engineering sciences), or an equivalent qualification recognized the examinations office. You can find further information here.

Engineering Science (Master)

Because of its mathematical, physics-based orientation, the master course Engineering Sciences prepares students for roles in research and development sections of companies and other institutes. Through the strong emphasis on the fundamentals of mathematics and physics, as well as on the application of analytical, numerical and experimental methods in concrete, practice-relevant engineering problems, students will be able to flexibly adapt to new problems and approach them holistically. In the project work, theoretical methods will be applied in a hands-on manner. The team-based and interdisciplinary working atmosphere is also of high importance in this respect. In addition, students have a large choice of elective modules, which will help to build and strengthen their individual profiles.

Human Factors (Master)

Interaction with technical systems plays a large role in both working life as well as day-to-day life and the private sphere. Intelligent IuK technologies at home and in the car, highly automated technology in aeroplane cockpits and industrial plants, robotic surgeons in the operating room – these days people are required almost everywhere to work together with more or less complex machines. Very often these developments are determined alone from new technical possibilities which have been brought about through engineering sciences. The central aim of the master course Human Factors lies in the acquirement of scientific knowledge and skills which contribute to a better understanding and improvement of the interaction between humans and technology. One of the central focal points of the course is the insights and methods of psychology, as well as fundamental knowledge pertaining to work- and engineering science. This forms the basis of a human-centric design for technology, which is becoming increasingly important in our modern society.

Admission requirements: Bachelor of Science specializing in an engineering science, informatics, psychology, or a comparable social science. You can find further information here.

Global Production Engineering (Master)

Global Production Engineering is a full-time four-semester course of study. The curriculum is designed for outstanding international graduate students seeking to improve their personal competence portfolio in the fields of production, management, engineering, and intercultural communication. The strong international orientation of our programme can be seen in the fact that 95% of our students are natives of countries other than Germany. To date, we have students from 43 different countries among our student body. Most courses are taught in English, giving students the option of taking all of their courses in the English language.
The GPE course of study acquired an 8-year accreditation in 2006 from the ASIIN, a special accreditation agency for the curricula of engineering sciences, computer science, natural sciences, and mathematics. This accreditation reaffirms and expands the high standards and quality of the programme.
GPE currently offer two majors: Manufacturing and Solar. Manufacturing is the older of the two majors, introduced at the beginning of the GPE programme in 1998. Solar was founded in 2007 as a way of developing technological potential in this area of international engineering education. The strong connection between the solar industry and the research institutes in Berlin and Brandenburg brings theory and practice together in one place.
This research-oriented education with its quasi-practical application in labs and associated thesis work allows students to get an early start on assuming tasks bearing responsibility at the university and in research. In addition, the last ten years have seen the formation of a global network of alumni, where alumni exchange information and provide mutual support for each other. GPE graduates today are collaborating on challenges such as construction of the Shanghai subway, production of German automobiles, or in projects setting up sustainable factories in the Amazon rain forest.
