Since 2005 the HECTOR School offers successfully part-time executive M.Sc. programs in close cooperation with the industry. Participants benefit from modules that take place parallel to their jobs, small groups, an international environment, and English as a language of teaching. All further education formats deal with new technological developments in the fields of product development, renewable energies, logistics, as well as financial and information technology and mobility. In five of the ten modules, participants gain additional comprehensive management know-how in topics such as international project and innovation management, business and finance models, and data-based information and decision-making. The continuing education thus represents a holistic further qualification in expert and management topics.
Interactive lectures and workshops and project work on a mechatronic system „Pluto“ form the triad of the „Management of Product Development“ program. The case study begins with the analysis of the previous generations of Pluto and other reference products, the determination of requirements, followed by the technical implementation and its validation. The project work is concluded with the presentation of all relevant project results and the autonomous transport of cold beverages.
