- Course programme
The master's programme follows on directly from the bachelor's programme in Mechanical Engineering at TU Wien. Graduates of the bachelor's programme in Mechanical Engineering are therefore admitted to this master's programme without restriction. Graduates in other subjects are subject to an assessment of their suitability for the course by the responsible governing body according to section 64, paragraph 5 of Austria's Universities Law (UG) 2002.
Graduates of the master's programme Mechanical Engineering possess in-depth theoretical knowledge, abstraction and problem-solving capabilities and specialist application-related knowledge in combination with corresponding economic and social skills, in order to make an important contribution to initiating and driving forward new developments, to be active in multidisciplinary, creative and innovative fields, to quickly understand new subject areas, to competently lead a team, to give informed and confident oral and written presentations of ideas and results, to evaluate the social, economic and ecological effects of technical developments and to promote humane technology and sustainable development. These skills are prerequisites for doctoral studies or a successful career in industry.
The course has a modular structure which enables a high degree of flexibility. The master's thesis accounts for 30 ECTS (i.e. one semester) and the remaining ECTS credits are optional modules, which can be arranged as students wish, as long as certain rules are observed, to form a more in-depth and specialised degree programme. The specialisation opportunities in the master’s programme Mechanical Engineering, which in turn comprise different optional modules, can be found in the course programme.
It is thus possible to enhance the basic knowledge obtained in the bachelor's programme with specific education in a field of interest to the student, and thus to acquire a suitable profile for a particular specialisation.
