Master's Programme in Service Management and Engineering
In modern economies, services are becoming increasingly important. Service elements are added to products, service--based business models are adopted by manufacturers, and new innovative service concepts and systems are emerging and developing rapidly. The Master’s Programme in Service Management and Engineering aims at providing the participants with a solid basic knowledge on the key issues of the field. It focuses on service design and production with the help of information and communication technologies. The programme places emphasis on customer involvement and productive assets; its lectures, design and implementation are designed to promote a systemic and interactive view of services.
