Master degree course

Industrial Engineering Field Mechanical Engineering

The master degree course is based on the bachelor degree courses offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, in particular on the bachelor degree courseIndustrial Engineering Field Mechanical Engineering.

In this degree course, the students can choose their focus in engineering science and economic science from the following:

  • General mechanical engineering
  • Energy and process engineering 
  • Automotive engineering
  • Aerospace engineering
  • Materials science
  • Mechatronics
  • Production and systems engineering

 

  • Decision support
  • Management of services
  • Finance
  • Information management
  • Marketing
  • Organisation and leadership
  • Production and logistics
  • Law
  • Corporate accounting
  • Economics

The information given here is only a brief overview; for more detailed information please see the Structure page and the Modulhandbuch.

Überfachliche Qualifikation – Interdisciplinary qualification

Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Ergänzung – Elective modules in economics

Projektarbeit –Project thesis


 

Specialisation modules

The specialisation modules comprise engineering science and economic science modules. For engineering science, modules with a total of 25 credits have to be chosen from a defined catalogue (Appendix 7 & 8). Lab work is possible but not compulsory. Two 10-credit modules have to be chosen from the respective area of specialisation for economic science.

The combination of certain specialisation modules in engineering science and economic science results in special focuses (see Appendix 9 MPO Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Maschinenbau), which will also be mentioned in your Transcript of Records.

 


Optional modules

In addition to the specialisation modules, optional modules with a total of 10 credits are also required, which can be chosen from all master modules offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering.


Elective modules in economics

Elective modules in economics with a total of 5 credits are required for this degree course, i.e. two courses from an area of specialisation in economic science, but not from the two already selected areas.

 


Scientific seminars

The scientific seminars module (8 credits) consists of two seminars that have to be chosen from the two selected areas of specialisation in economic science and two module essays on a selected topic.

 


Interdisciplinary qualification

The students are required to achieve 12 credits from non-technical modules. The respective assignments and exams are counted as course achievements and are therefore not part of the final grade. These modules are intended to provide the students with methodology and social skills (interdisciplinary qualification and professionalization). The modules including exams can be chosen from a list defined by the examination board. Language courses also count as non-technical modules, e.g. English courses level B2 or higher. For other languages, the students have to prove whether they have already learned the language at school and if so, the level achieved.

These courses will also be mentioned in your Transcript of Records as a proof of the skills you acquired. If you get a grade for the courses, it will be listed on the final certificate.

 


Project thesis

The students earn 10 credits for the project thesis. During the project work, the students learn how to develop, implement and present concepts and how to define goals and develop interdisciplinary approaches and concepts in teams. In addition to the written thesis (8 credits), an oral presentation of the results is required (2 credits). The project thesis can also be done in teams, but the students’ individual work has to be clearly indicated in order to evaluate it, e.g. by chapters, page numbers or other objective criteria. The project work can be carried out at any institute of the Department of Mechanical Engineering or the Carl-Friedrich-Gauß-Fakultät and is generally registered at the mentoring institute. The application and submission dates are also documented by this institute. Like the master’s thesis, the project thesis can also be done at a company. The project work must be supervised by both a professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and one from the Carl-Friedrich-Gauß-Fakultät, who define the subject of the thesis and evaluate it.

 


Master thesis

The students earn 30 credits for the final module. They have six months to complete the master’s thesis (28 credits), including the written part and literature research, and to give a presentation (2 credits) on the results afterwards. Both parts have to be passed independently in order to obtain the master’s degree. The weighting for the module grade is as follows: thesis 90 %, presentation 10 %. You have to register at the office of the Department of Mechanical Engineering for the thesis and you can start writing it if you have passed all exams (specialisation, optional, elective and professionalization modules), the project thesis and the assignments (course achievements). You can also write the thesis at a company, but you need a professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering or the Carl-Friedrich-Gauß-Fakultät as your supervisor, who defines the subject of the thesis and evaluates it..
