Metrology and Measurement Technology (Master)

Probenvorbereitung für die Messungen von Nanomaterialien mittels Röntgendiffraktometrie am Institut für Partikeltechnik

Key data

Degree Master of Science
Standard duration of study 4 semesters
Language of Instruction German
Start of programme winter and summer semester
Admission free admission (special admission requirements)

Experimental measurements lay the foundation for new scientific findings in every engineering and scientific discipline. But how do you measure both large aircraft components and nanoparticles as accurately as possible? How do you extend the limits of what can be measured up to the realm of quantum mechanics and thus make empirical research in this field possible? And how do measurements in production ensure high product quality within the framework of quality assurance? You will find the answers to these and other questions in this interdisciplinary Master’s programme, which is unique in Germany.

What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor’s programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master's programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.



The Metrology and Measurement Technology degree programme is an interdisciplinary degree programme offered by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in cooperation with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics, the Faculty of Life Sciences and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the National Metrology Institute. By integrating these institutions into the curriculum, you will gain an early insight into the practice of metrology and receive training from experts in the field.
