The Master's programme in Engineering Sciences has a standard period of study of three semesters as a full-time programme and a maximum of six semesters as a part-time programme. It includes a practical project as well as a Master's thesis, which must be completed in the final semester.
The programme is devised as an application-focused course. Its aim is to provide its students with advanced and specialist knowledge in engineering and related areas on a scientific foundation. In addition to providing advanced training in engineering, the course is intended to promote general skills such as teamwork, intercultural communication, and English language skills.
This is supported by the Master's project, which is conducted as a group project in a situation that is as realistic as possible. Students learn methodological skills on how to organise and complete complex tasks as well as work effectively in a team.
The course contents are independent of each other, so there is no fixed sequence order. However, the majority of courses are offered only once per year. About 60% to 70% of all courses contain lectures combined with practical lab class exercises.
