Master’s thesis with colloquium
You will undertake this either in a laboratory of Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences or in collaboration with industry.

Do you have a technical business concept that you would like to pursue and develop? We will support you with the technical expertise and equipment of the Faculty Engineering and the necessary business skills. These can include the development of a business model, business plan and innovation management of the degree programme Master Entrepreneurship. You will thus receive support for your own projects and ideas from teachers from Engineering, Business, Administration and IT.

Would you like to work on an interesting and innovative Research Project and publish your findings? 

The master programme with focus Research can be studied in English!

We offer the possibility to do a double degree together with the UTHM in Malaysia within the framework of a Research Master. You will study the first semester in Heilbronn and spend the two following semesters (research project and master thesis) in Batu Bahat at UTHM. After successful completion of your studies, you will then have both the German and the Malaysian Master. For further information, please get in touch with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Gleiter (uwe.gleiter@hs-heilbronn.de).

Requirements and Application

Before applying to Heilbronn University, non-German Bachelor degrees need to be declared equivalent to a German first degree. More information about the recognition of foreign degrees is available here: https://www.htwg-konstanz.de/en/academics/studienkolleg/application. We are working on a process to do the recognition by ourselves and hope to start with it end of July 2024.

Please note: Requirement for admission is also a grade of 2.5 or better (German grading scale) in the Bachelor's degree.

The entry requirements in German also apply to the Incomings (Erasmus+, Global, Freemover). However, we also offer and recommend appr. 30 ECTS lectures in English language that you can attend.
