MILLING-RELATED PROCESS ENGINEERING
The DMSB educates "certified technicians” in the field of "mill construction, grain and animal feed technology”. One of two possible specialisations at the DMSB is the subject area “milling-related process engineering". The prospective managers of manufacturing companies will be trained here.
In addition to technical knowledge about mill-engineering this course imparts skills to solve milling-technology related issues in practice. All students learn to make independent career decisions and act competentbased on their experience and existing knowledge. They are supported through great facilities with internal laboratories, computer rooms, and a "virtual mill".
WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU?
The world is yours: With the uniquely broad training our graduates not only work in various milling-divisions, but actually anywhere, where
- Gaining, sorting and processing,
- Crushing, granulating and pelletizing,
- Separating, metering and mixing happen.
So you can access all areas of food production, the bulk and storage technology, the chemical industry and recycling. With a degree from the DMSB the choice is yours!
WHO CAN GRADUATE?
A completed vocational training or a degree as well as one year of practical experience are required. These include journeyman (m/f), technicians (m/f) and engineers (m / f) from the areas of:
- Milling or food production
- Bakery and confectionery
- Mill-construction, metal-construction and engineering
- Mechatronics or construction / drawing
HOW DOES THAT WORK?
The structure of the course ranges from the refreshing of basic knowledge about deeper vocational subjects to the applied subjects. Field trips and guest lectures provide a link to the necessary practical context at any time. Towards the end of the course, state-approved examinations in the four subjects mathematics, process technologies (milling processes), bakery production (cereals and flour analysis / bakery-technology) and animal feed production (animal feed / feed technology) are compulsory. Anoral examination is potentially required and may apply across all subjects. After passing the examination a certificate on the certified technician exam will be issued with the marks obtained in each subject.
AND BEYOND THAT?
In support of the classroom activities, the DMSB conducts numerous field trips. Exhibitions, seminars, factory visits and the cooperation with public and private research institutions are all part of the programme. Towards the end of the course, a four-week project thesis has to be submitted. The assignments are provided by companies and research institutions and thus evolve directly from a practical context. For these complex problems, the students work independently, responsibly and situation appropriately and develop solutions, based on their own experience and knowledge. The results and the approaches have to be worked out scientifically and documented in written work. Afterwards the completed project (research project) will be presented to a professional audience.
