Studies - An overview
Master of Science in Engineering
Following completion of their Bachelorʼs degree, top graduates are able to immediately continue their studies and obtain a Master of Science in Engineering. This consecutive Masterʼs degree programme enables students to specialise in one of seven disciplines and prepares them for management positions in technical environments.
Why not spend a semester at a university abroad and write your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis there, while making contacts with specialists from around the world? The School of Engineering has been promoting international and national student exchanges with other universities for many years and is continually expanding its relationships with specifically selected partner universities.
Students following the Aviation, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Engineering and Management programmes can choose the International Profile after completing their first year. This entails attending English-language subject modules, obtaining certification of excellent foreign language skills, courses in Intercultural Communication and Management, and an extended stay abroad during the study programme.
The Master of Science in Engineering curriculum has a double-degree agreement with Washington State University
