As a Master of Science in Engineering graduate of the Mechanical Engineering profile, you are able to design, construct, model, validate and optimise components, modules or complete systems professionally and cost-effectively. You are familiar with methods and tools to create mechanical and mechatronic systems, including control and automation solutions. You overcome complex problems by applying highly advanced methodical skills.
Specific prior knowledge is required for admission to this profile of the master’s degree programme. Candidates holding a good bachelor degree in one of the following disciplines generally meet the criteria:
- Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Microtechnology
- Bachelor of Science in Automotive Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design Technology
- Bachelor of Science in Material and Process Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in System Technology
The assessment of the entry qualifications is part of the admissions procedure.
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth: two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed at a research unit of a university of applied sciences. As part of this in-depth specialisation you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme focuses on theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with support from your advisor. This study advisor will also guide you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation.
