Masters 2016/2017 in Baden-Württemberg Germany. As mechatronics system engineer you will explore one of the most interesting and diverse activities offered by the industry today. System engineers are professional managers with a broad interdisciplinary area of ​​responsibility. They are required in their profession as a whole person. System engineers want to know more ... not just when studying, but also at work. For them, "lifelong learning" is not an empty slogan, but a daily reality. System engineers as specialists for the whole That the mechatronics mechanics, electronics and software merges together, is now well known. But if one specialist in mechanics, electronics and software can alone develop a sophisticated mechatronic system that rarely goes well. "A system is more than the sum of its parts" - a special expertise is in accordance with the development of mechatronic systems required that goes beyond the pure technical knowledge of mechanics, electronics and software. The mechatronics system engineer knows and shapes the relationships and interactions between the parts of the system. He is like the "specialist for the whole". Mechatronics - Systems Engineering The master program "Mechatronics - Systems Engineering" provides qualified graduates the opportunity to specifically prepare for a future career as a mechatronic system engineering. The mechatronics degree programs of universities and Aalen Esslingen have by pooling their resources and skills the course in cooperation together. The master's degree can be both full-time (3 semesters) and part-time (5 semesters) are studied. As a graduate you wear the academic degree "Master of Engineering (M. Closely.)". The certificate will be issued jointly by the universities Aalen and Esslingen. The courses of the program in the summer semester in Aalen place and in the winter semester in Göppingen. Since the lectures do not build on each other, the baseline is possible both in summer and winter semester. Content of the program The program deepens specific mechatronic-interdisciplinary subjects, without specializing in specific industries or applications. He is a solid basic knowledge mechatronic advance and therefore reiterates few content from the Bachelor studies. The core of the curriculum forms a series of courses, which are all based on the central idea of ​​the model-based mechatronic design. The other half of the courses concerned with special fields that are important for mechatronics professionals of tomorrow. At the request of our students, we have now also taken options in the curriculum. We are confident that our elective modules will come to medical systems and mobile robotic systems on your interest. Alternatively you can also select a module from another master's degree at the University of Aalen. Laboratory equipment and industry contacts Who wants to work in a practice-oriented, requires a reasonable laboratory equipment. In fact, offer the six participating at our Master's program mechatronic laboratories in Aalen and Esslingen an outfit that leaves little to be desired. Good contacts with the industrial enterprises of the region it easier to find interesting master theses and subsequent career. Our motto: Small but powerful The professors of the course is a seminar-teaching at heart, in the room for questions and discussions remains. In the good learning environment is one of the strengths of our program - which is reflected back to us by our students. But this is only in groups possible that are manageable in size. Conversely, this means that we have to limit the number of places. Therefore in the summer term we take on only 10 new entrants in the winter semester 15th Of course we are very happy about the great interest in our study. Unfortunately, this also means that we can not always take account of all eligible applications. Individual approach Our students come from various universities and from various disciplines to us. They bring with individual professional knowledge and interests. For us, this results in the challenge to meet the individual differences justice. Studying part-time The program "Mechatronics - Systems Engineering" is also aimed explicitly at engineers who are already working and want to use a master's degree to to further qualify or possibly also a new career direction. We are pleased that we can now welcome a significant number of students with professional experience with us. For students who want to pursue while studying a profession, we offer a part-time version of the program. Admission Requirements To the Master Mechatronics - to study systems engineering, you should have a Bachelor of mechatronics, mechanical engineering or a "related" degree program have been completed with an overall grade of 2.4 or better. What is a "related" degree, we define the basis of a list of core subjects. [-]

Master in Politics, Administration & International Relations

Zeppelin University
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years August 2017 Germany Friedrichshafen

For experts on science & research, foundations, parliaments, civil service, associations, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, opinion research centers, political consulting, journalism, public relations [+]

For experts on science & research, foundations, parliaments, civil service, associations, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, opinion research centers, political consulting, journalism, public relations New Educational Dimensions for the Management of Politics, Administration, and Organizations The public sector finds itself in one of the most important phases of transformation in the history of modern statehood. The following examples are indicative of this profound change: European integration; new global and regional interdependence; the call for more efficient and more citizen-oriented administrative management; debates about privatization, public-private partnerships, or debureaucratization; the introduction of Electronic Government; the crisis of confidence in public institutions, with issues concerning ethical standards and new forms of political communication. This doesn't just include public, communal, and international administration, but rather public enterprises, non-government organizations, non-profit organizations, and political authorities such as alliances, parties, and parliaments. The new generation of executives in the public sector need ever-more management and strategic expertise to prepare them for making complex decisions in the dynamic environment of politics, economics, and society – on both a national and an international level. ZU offers an innovative training and research program in the form of management-oriented politics and administrative sciences with international relations, in which social scientific elements of organizational research and policy research are combined with economics, management skills, and the most important elements of public law. In this context, the faculty of Public Management & Governance sees itself as a research and education laboratory which promotes problem-centered training for the public sector in interdisciplinary dialog, with an international profile and in a theory-driven way. The following characteristics particularly distinguish the master program in "Politics, Administration & International Relations". 1. Specialization Within Master Degrees Three tracks are available: TRACK I: International Relations & Global Politics How are the political aspects of international economic relations arranged? How is development policy directed? How is international law constituted? How are European and international political processes arranged? TRACK II: Political Institutions & Decisions How do political decision-making processes work? What do we learn from psephology? How do people behave politically? Which players and institutions define politics? TRACK III: Public Goods & Services Can public goods be restricted? How can the performance of organizations be measured and improved? What recent developments are there in the area of E-Government? 2. Research Project What de­fines aca­d­e­mic work? Aca­d­e­mic vs. prac­ti­cal work. Are they op­po­sites? The best way to an­swer this ques­tion is to pur­sue aca­d­e­mics your­self. Be­gin­ning with the for­mu­la­tion of a con­crete ques­tion which should be an­swered by means of the choice of meth­ods, through the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the analy­sis, to the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the re­sults, the stu­dents will have the sup­port struc­ture of the pro­fes­so­rate at hand while car­ry­ing out their au­tonomous aca­d­e­mic work. 3. Co-operation with the Universities of Konstanz and Zürich The pol­i­tics and ad­min­is­tra­tion fac­ul­ties of the Uni­ver­sity of Kon­stanz, the Uni­ver­sity of Zürich, and Zep­pelin Uni­ver­sity have joined forces to pool their ex­per­tise. Se­lected ZU mas­ter stu­dents re­ceive a travel schol­ar­ship to at­tend courses in Kon­stanz or Zürich. Language Requirements Al­though a good num­ber of courses are of­fered in Eng­lish at ZU, stu­dents will not be in a po­si­tion to com­plete a de­gree pro­gram in Eng­lish.

Master in Communication & Cultural Management

Zeppelin University
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years August 2017 Germany Friedrichshafen

Masters 2016/2017 in Baden-Württemberg Germany. In societies of today, knowledge of different cultures and actionability within those cultures are more sought-after than ever. Likewise the demands on communication practices have increased dramatically. For that reason communication skills and cultural knowledge are key qualifications for the 21st century. Our master degree in the field of "Communication & Cultural Management" meets these challenges. Here, students can choose between two different tracks, meaning they can focus on either "Communication and Media" or "Culture Production". On the one hand, graduates of this course learn about and analyze the cultural foundations of present societies, while on the other hand they are enabled, through communicative practice, to play a part in resolving current social issues. Together, communication and culture are unlikely basic concepts of modern society. They emphasize what we take for granted and, in the process, call it into question. That changes the situation. The master degree in the field of "Communication & Cultural Management" offers its students a critical analysis with communications and cultural science theories and establishes an advanced understanding of the workings and problems of modern society. Students study research methods relating to the humanities and social sciences, as well as the functioning of social and cultural analysis. A dialog-oriented and autonomously organized degree course promotes cognitive, creative, and expressive abilities. In addition, research experience is gained, while organizational skills and the ability to work in a team are developed in real-life research-, consultancy-, and exhibition projects. The new generation of executives in culture and communication need ever more management and strategic expertise to prepare them for making complex decisions in the dynamic environment of media, cultural institutions, economy, and society – on both a national and an international level. Combine Culture and Communication with Management Skills A program for everyone who has more faith in culture and communication than in numbers and offices. The professors ought to know this one best: What are the most important questions concerning the Faculty of Cultural Sciences? Sustainable Society and Media How free is the flow of information? What do media communicate? And how? What else should you know in an information society? Cultural Management for the Next Society Does anyone want to be the public anymore? Why is culture unsettled? And how are museums and other cultural institutions organized in the 21st century? Communication Illuminated Politically and Strategically Do foundations convey reform messages in a more efficient way? And who influences advertising? Innovation through Art How are progressive art and "social innovations" compatible? Does art exist without civil society? If so, what does it look like? Language Requirements Although a good number of courses are offered in English at ZU, students will not be in a position to complete a degree program in English. Knowledge of English is preferred; knowledge of German is an absolute necessity. ZU requires that all degree-seeking applicants demonstrate a minimum of intermediate-level German skills. [-]

Business Administration for non-business specialists This is some­thing you won't find at most Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties. Why is that? A Mas­ter in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion for non-busi­ness spe­cial­ists re­quires a sub­stan­tial amount of con­fi­dence on the part of lec­tur­ers and stu­dents. Con­fi­dence in your ver­sa­til­ity - be­cause with us, bi­ol­o­gists, ar­chi­tects, en­gi­neers, and lawyers all study side by side. Con­fi­dence in the pro­duc­tiv­ity of your back­ground and your ac­cu­mu­lated ex­pe­ri­ence – be­cause your aca­d­e­mic pedi­gree and your prac­ti­cal knowl­edge may well be in­valu­able for a de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion. And con­fi­dence in an in­tel­li­gent al­liance of fun­da­men­tal skills and in­di­vid­ual spe­cial­iza­tions – be­cause you need both. The General Management master degree is an academic study program rooted in theory but with practical relevance. The course provides a theoretical and practical knowledge of general business administration and economics. Alongside established management qualifications you will acquire the know-how to organize your own academic research work. You will be in a position to analyze socially relevant economic problems from a multidisciplinary perspective, and to address them using innovative academic methods. The program also involves an international internship. Any students who have already done an internship abroad in their undergraduate studies can, alternatively, choose to do a StudentStudies module (with individualized content) or an interdisciplinary module of their own choice. The option of GlobalStudies – a semester abroad combined with two internships abroad – is, additionally, available to all GEMA students. Alongside your studies you also take part in ZU's TandemCoaching. This is an individualized support structure for every student in their developmental process, in the form of an Academic Coach and a Practical Coach. At many universities the supervision ratio is 160 students to a professor – here we have two coaches per student. Once per semester the students reflect on their academic work and their professional orientation with both coaches. Language Requirements Although a good number of courses are offered in English at ZU, students will not be in a position to complete a degree program in English. Knowledge of English is preferred; knowledge of German is an absolute necessity. ZU requires that all degree-seeking applicants demonstrate a minimum of intermediate-level German skills. [-]

Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122.

Masters 2016/2017 in Baden-Württemberg Germany. Decision-makers and entrepreneurs are being confronted more than ever before with demands that can no longer be met by the functional range of classic business management alone. Conventional management training has reached its limits, as argued by the renowned Canadian management theorist Henry Mintzberg and the Stanford economist Jeffrey Pfeffer, and ironically lamented by "The Economist" in its 2010 yearbook: "The decline of the MBA will cut off the supply of bullshit at source." p. 122. So what now? For a deeper understanding of these new challenges – unavoidable crises aside – knowledge in communication sciences, cultural sciences and political sciences are imperative. Medialization in the form of "CEO branding" and the harmonization of "product-, equity- and employer branding" within the national culture are as much part of the challenge faced by today's top decision-makers as interaction with political networks, regulation and deregulation trends, privatization initiatives and public-private partnerships. Since 2003, ZU has reacted to these challenges with a new (by German standards) type of research-oriented business qualification for generalists. The novelty lies in the combination of business administration and economics with cultural studies, communication and media studies, as well as aspects of political science and public administration. A program that questions the economy. We have already had enough answers. The pro­fes­sors know this one best: What are the eight most im­por­tant ques­tions oc­cu­py­ing the fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics? Sus­tain­able or­ga­ni­za­tions What will fu­ture or­ga­ni­za­tions be like after years of on­go­ing re­or­ga­ni­za­tion? Net­worked or in­for­mal? Global cap­i­tal mar­kets What will the new order of glob­al­ized fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions look like? How can it be suit­ably reg­u­lated?

"A degree in engineering is now almost a guaranteed job," said Willi Fuchs of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Especially in the construction industry, the demand for young engineers since 2005 no longer be covered (statistics of the German construction industry). Will be looking for the company, according to a report by the employment agency Adecco, reinforced engineers in the field of project management. Technical knowledge coupled with extensive management skills is the sought-after training constellation. At this skills shortage is unlikely to change much in the future. Although the number of graduates in engineering rises again, but the increasing demand therefore can not long be covered. Yet this is, according to Fox, the average age of the engineers at 50 years. This leads to the conclusion that in the next 10 years, about 450,000 engineers will retire. But more and more companies are looking globally deployable staff. Motivated young professionals and managers have a good chance to be at the beginning of the career come true from abroad the dream. For many engineers of "think outside the box" is a career boost. To abroad to work, you have to apply directly there, not necessarily. Working Without Borders also offer many companies based in Germany. In view of the defendant engineering defect, the industry is looking increasingly women and sees in them a tremendous talent reserve. To more and more young women to inspire a technical study of governments, companies and associations have the "Girls Day" was launched. These efforts seem already to bear fruit. So is the proportion of women, according to a report by the Federal Employment Agency, architects and civil engineers in 2010 at 27%. This is the time when the construction industry was considered an exclusively male domain, probably over.
