Technical Systems

Towards perfection with computer-aided processes

Germany is a global leader in building capital-intensive systems and plants, such as power plants and large chemical facilities or tooling machines in the automotive industry. To assess the possibilities and limits of changes or new developments, and to analyse and optimise existing systems, companies use computer-aided development and simulation tools. With a master’s degree in Technical Systems from Ruhr West, you become an expert in generating such complex models and simulations.

In practice, many simulations and computer models are not an optimal representation of the real system. Often companies content themselves with partial solutions or purely qualitative descriptions of behaviour. This is mainly because there is a shortage of experts with specialised training. Frequently, therefore, the modelling is done by persons with a regular engineering degree or computer scientists whose training only allows them to solve partial aspects of the task at hand.

The master’s programme in Technical Systems at Ruhr West provides just that kind of specialist training, combining scientific contents with practical, career-oriented components. During their studies, students switch between theory and practice in order to learn how to find optimal solutions between these two poles. The goal is to enable them to model complex systems and processes for industrial practice as well as research. The curriculum is designed to give students a scientifically based understanding of technical systems by introducing them to relevant methods from various science disciplines (physics, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering). The degree programme consists of three blocks:

  • Foundations and technical/physical background
  • Systems theory and modelling
  • Computer-aided simulation methods, numerical mathematics and visualisation

Moreover, students acquire key skills such as media and presentations skills, team work skills, conflict management and communication skills.
