Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Mechanical Engineering

The field of mechanical engineering focuses on the design, manufacturing and operation of machinery, and work within the field is carried out by interdisciplinary teams. Students deepen and expand their professional knowledge through this consecutive Master's degree program. They also learn skills like interdisciplinary thinking, team-oriented action and how to professionally present their results.

The Master's degree program is a consecutive program which builds on a six-semester Bachelor’s degree. The curriculum is oriented towards covering the broad range of demands mechanical engineers face in their careers. Students gain challenging and detailed scientific expertise in specialized areas based on instruction in advanced mathematics and engineering fundamentals. This allows students to reinforce their abstract, analytical and networked thinking skills.


The focus of the program is on interdisciplinary thinking, team-oriented action and presenting results in a professional manner, and it prepares graduates for management duties and leadership positions.

Entry requirements

Bachelor’s or graduate degree, or comparable degree in mechanical engineering, mechatronics or future energy sources, with an overall grade of 3.0 or better.

If students do not have at least this grade average, the admissions committee may grant them admission without a qualified diploma if their overall application indicates that they will be able to complete the Master's degree program successfully. The applicant will be asked to complete a personal interview with the committee for this purpose. Upon requests, students may be admitted if they have completed a degree in another subject area.

Application period

  • Applicants from Germany and EU countries:
    Winter semester: 15 April to 15 October
    Summer semester: 15 Okctober to 15 April
  • Applicants from non-EU countries:
    Winter semester: 15 April to 15 October
    Summer semester: 15 October to 15 April


  • Design
  • Precision engineering
