Specialization "Product Life Cycle Management"

In the "Product Life Cycle Management" specialization, students follow the life cycle of a product - from development and design through user-friendly engineering to marketing and overarching embedding in the technology strategy and innovation management in the company.
To this end, we impart technical knowledge in development and design in a practical manner and using our modern laboratories. From a business perspective, the training is supplemented by techniques and patterns for building new business models as part of a practical project. The interdisciplinary modules Technology and Innovation Management and Usability Engineering round off the Product Life Cycle Management specialization.

The specialization "Product Life Cycle Management" consists of compulsory specialization subjects, recommended compulsory elective modules and optional compulsory elective modules. The compulsory specialization subjects are four modules that must be taken. Of the recommended and/or optional elective modules, a total of two must be freely chosen.
