Mechanical Engineering Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Students can orient their studies in the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering in general or choose one of the specializations (Energy and Environmental Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Mechatronics and Microsystems Engineering, Product Development and Design, Production Engineering, Theoretical Mechanical Engineering or Materials and Structures for High Performance Systems). In addition to a compulsory area, there is an elective area from mechanical engineering and other disciplines. In addition, there are interdisciplinary qualifications and the master's thesis. By choosing the specialization, two major fields and the topic of their master's thesis, students tailor their master's program to their own areas of interest.
