The master’s programme Production Science and Management helped me to grow both professionally and personally. My technical background was perfectly complemented by the entrepreneurial knowledge I gained in the master's programme, since it offers holistic training through its specialisations in mechanical engineering, business and social skills. This enables me to think and work in a solution-oriented and effective way, which is very helpful in my job as a university assistant.
