Studying Industrial Production

Berlin is considered to be Europe’s digital capital and is becoming one of its most modern and innovative industrial locations. The unique collaboration between pioneering research, energetic high-tech start-ups and Berlin’s industrial companies is not only setting new priorities, such as smart production and Industry 4.0, but also implementing mega-projects such as “Future pact – Siemensstadt 2.0”. It is not surprising that this is also attracting young people, in particular, to the capital. Mechanical engineering and production technology, as well as energy and resource efficiency, are just some of the industrial production courses offered by various colleges and universities, such as the leading institution, TU Berlin, for example.
