"Management of Production and Supply Chain" with Industry 4.0 and Sustainability part-time study at TZ PULS

Start of the registration phase for the retread master's degree at the Technology Center Production and Logistics Systems in Dingolfing

At the Technology Center Production and Logistics Systems (TZ PULS), the branch of Landshut University of Applied Sciences located in Dingolfing, teaching - along with research and knowledge transfer together with the network of corporate cooperations - is one of the central pillars.

The program is designed to appeal to professionals and junior managers with a university degree by offering a practice-oriented and future-oriented management education leading to an MBA degree. With this in mind, the program has been completely overhauled for the start in the summer semester of 2024. For the interdisciplinary degree program, the technical and economic focal points in the areas of Industry 4.0 and Supply Chain Management have been expanded in line with the challenges of industry, and content on work organization, sustainability and digitalization has been strengthened.

Thus, the renamed "Management of Production and Supply Chain" degree program (formerly Value-Oriented Production Management) teaches modern competencies, methods and skills in the environment of supply chain management, purchasing and materials management, production, quality management as well as logistics. In addition, special emphasis is placed on learning integrative and method-based leadership competencies for employee management, organizational development and project management.

The program offers a high level of practical relevance of the course content through strong networking of method-based theory with real situations in companies and prepares students for future tasks and challenges in a highly dynamic professional environment - also through the strong involvement of industry partners and the integration of the model and learning factory at the Technology Center for Production and Logistics Systems. Among other things, this conveys concrete solution approaches for the design of Lean Production & Logistics as well as modern technologies of Industry 4.0.

"With our master's program, we are training the specialists and managers for the companies of tomorrow," says program director Professor Meißner. "We teach theory and practice closely intertwined. The excellent lecturers from industry pass on their personal experience in a practical way using case studies and action plans. Due to the small group sizes in the seminars, an intensive and interactive exchange takes place. In addition, the TZ PULS model and learning factory uses a "learning-by-doing" approach to teach tools and methods of modern production - from the use of AI to digital twins and process automation. What's more, the exchange among the students, who have very different professional backgrounds, is enriching." According to Meißner, the graduates received a "compass, toolbox and network, i.e. everything they need for their further professional success" in the course.

Now the registration phase for the renewed start of the first semester begins - now for the eighth time.

A digital information event is held once a month for prospective students.
