MSE Master of Science in Engineering

The Swiss engineering master's degree

Jedes Modul umfasst 3 ECTS. Sie wählen insgesamt 10 Module/30 ECTS in den folgenden Modulkategorien:

  • ​​​​12-15 ECTS in Technisch-wissenschaftlichen Modulen (TSM)
    TSM-Module vermitteln Ihnen profilspezifische Fachkompetenz und ergänzen die dezentralen Vertiefungsmodule.
  • 9-12 ECTS in Erweiterten theoretischen Grundlagen (FTP)
    FTP-Module behandeln theoretische Grundlagen wie die höhere Mathematik, Physik, Informationstheorie, Chemie usw. Sie erweitern Ihre abstrakte, wissenschaftliche Tiefe und tragen dazu bei, den für die Innovation wichtigen Bogen zwischen Abstraktion und Anwendung spannen zu können.
  • 6-9 ECTS in Kontextmodulen (CM)
    CM-Module vermitteln Ihnen Zusatzkompetenzen aus Bereichen wie Technologiemanagement, Betriebswirtschaft, Kommunikation, Projektmanagement, Patentrecht, Vertragsrecht usw.

Integrated Sustainable Management of Production Systems (CM_IntSust)

Companies are increasingly interested in conducting their activities so that a long-term future is assured for its business, society and environment. The purpose of this class is to deal with the well-recognized but sometimes vague concept of sustainability from an engineering perspective. The module is meant to introduce students to the implementation of sustainable management in industries and provide them with tools enabling the enhancement of the sustainability performances of production systems.




During lectures, practitioners gain knowledge on the sustainability concept and are educated on its concrete application into the present industrial context. Standards, sustainability assessment tools, reporting systems and best practices are presented as the main instruments to answer market and regulations sustainability requirements raised in the last decades. The approach used to treat the sustainable management of manufacturing systems is a holistic one since all the three sustainability dimensions are addressed (i.e. environment, economy and society) and the industrial activities considered include the design and the management of product, process and supply chain in an integrated way. The course is divided into two main blocks aiming at:

  1. Defining what is meant by sustainability and present the role of standards and regulations into sustainable management systems;
  2. Providing students with tools allowing to assess, report and communicate on sustainability performances of products and processes. The measure of sustainability level enable to monitor the management system effectiveness and to enhance performances.
