Are you interested in state-of-the-art product development? Would you like to grapple with exciting engineering and scientific issues? If so, this programme in Production Engineering and Materials Science will prepare you for a wide-ranging career in mechanical engineering..
The very varied manufacturing tasks and specific material requirements in almost all sectors call for extensive knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies, production methods and processes, materials’ properties and their special characteristics.
This generates tasks relating to fundamental scientific principles, construction (design, calculation, simulation), manufacturing production systems, assembly, automation engineering and materials science. This master’s degree programme in Production Engineering and Materials Science qualifies you for prominent roles in the production process for technical products. The content is designed to robustly enhance your skills and equip you with practically focused specialist knowledge.
Master of Science (M. Sc.)
This master’s degree programme Production Engineering and Materials Science is completed over three semesters. The first two consist of lectures, practical sessions and project work. In the third semester, the emphasis switches to completing your master’s thesis.
The programme is application-oriented and therefore focuses strongly on practice. By selecting the subjects you wish to take from “Special areas in production engineering and materials science” and “Additional skills”, you can hone the special knowledge you wish to focus on. You are most likely to write your master’s thesis based at a company.
The university awards students who successfully complete the programme the academic title Master of Science (M.Sc.).
Materials and how they are processed form the basis for all kinds of product development these days. The distinguishing features of many products stem from the materials used. Developments such as extremely lightweight construction would not have been possible without advances in materials science and production engineering. On the other hand, their significance also comes to the fore in response to demands for more sparing use of our natural resources, recycling systems and energy efficiency.
Against this backdrop, industry is calling out for specially trained engineers with a solid knowledge base in materials science and broad awareness of potential manufacturing techniques and processes. As a result, this master’s degree programme is not only highly sought after in many sectors, but also opens the door to various areas within companies.
Fields of activity:
The admission requirement for this master’s degree programme in Production Engineering and Materials Science is a first degree with a “good” or better overall grade in mechanical engineering, or equivalent programme, worth at least 210 Credit Points. Applicants with at least 180 ECTS Credit Points from theoretical study semesters will be admitted if they can provide evidence of at least 20 weeks’ work in a practical engineering role in a field related to mechanical engineering. Candidates will be selected based on complete and timely application and submission of documents and according to the average grade for their first degree.
If your certificate is not yet available, you must submit a transcript of your current performance, in which no more than 40 ECTS Credit Points remain to complete your degree – or if Credit Points are not indicated, you are within 25 semester weeks of completing your degree.
All the latest information and details on applying and the admission requirements can be found under Applications and admissions.
A Master of Science (M.Sc.) qualifies you to commence doctoral studies either in Germany or abroad.
