Specializations and competence fields
The title "Master of Science SUPSI in Engineering, with specialization in [name of the area of specialization]" can be obtained for the following four specializations:

Business Engineering and Production (BEP)

- Business Process Management: Management of in-house and inter-company business processes. Mapping of organizational structures and processes in communication and information systems.

- Operations Management and Analytics: Optimum configuration and control of industrial and service processes, especially on the basis of formal models and methods of data analysis. Guaranteeing quality and availability standards for products and services.

- Supply Network Management: Configuration and management of complex global added-value systems. Systematic handling of the complexity of global networks with a strategic time horizon.

Energy and Environment (EE)

- Energy engineering: Concepts, modeling, planning, implementation and operation of efficient systems for converting, storing, making available and using energy.

- Process engineering: Concepts, layout, modeling, planning, implementation and operation of process-engineering processes and systems.

- Environmental engineering: Analysis, modeling, planning and implementation of measures in conjunction with problems involving air, water and soil and also for process-integrated environmental protection.

Industrial Technologies (InT)

- Product development and production technology: Integral development of components, modules or whole systems. Development and implementation of cost-efficient production technologies based on reliable processes.

- Materials technology: Development of materials and material surfaces and their production methods. Selection of the appropriate materials for a product and subsequent integration into the product manufacturing process.

- Mechatronics and automation: Conception, analysis, modeling and implementation of mechatronic components and systems and automated components and systems.

- Embedded systems and microelectronics: Analysis, architectures, design and implementation of software and hardware modules for embedded microelectronic systems and components.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)

- Communication and information systems: Planning, risk analysis, implementation and operation of secure, efficient and reliable communication and information systems.

- Development and operation of intelligent networks, embedded systems, mobile, pervasive and ubiquitous applications, services and devices.

- Software engineering and software technology: Architecture, analysis, design, development, extension and testing of software systems that meet all user and system requirements, run reliably, securely and efficiently and are easy to interact with.

- Data and information management: Acquisition, processing, modeling, consolidation, management, analysis, searching and visualization of data and information with efficient sequential, parallel or distributed algorithms and optimization methods.
