Production Engineering

Development of production and manufacturing systems including new manufacturing processes and application of innovative technologies such as robotics, additive manufacturing, laser processing.

Production Engineering is a specialisation of the Bachelor of Science programme in Mechanical Engineering in close cooperation with the Institute for Product and Production Engineering FHNW.

"The demands on a production/mechanical engineer are many and varied. The Production Engineering specialisation is just as versatile. One is trained to cope with a wide range of future tasks, which are not only dealt with in theory but also practically with experiments and laboratory exercises".

Stefan Kettner, student

In the specialisation Production Engineering you will learn to plan, analyse and further develop production systems and manufacturing processes, taking into account the economic framework conditions.

The modern and extensive laboratory and computer infrastructure enables the optimal and individually tailored combination of experimental and numerical expertise. This includes the laboratories for:
Finite element simulation (FEM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), materials science, digitalisation, production engineering, 3D scanning, additive manufacturing (AM), laser micro-materials processing, acoustics, and static and dynamic component testing.

This specialisation allows graduates to enter industry as a production engineer, later on to work as a production manager or even as an SME.
