The Master of Mechanical Engineering is an engineering science degree programme for one of the largest industrial sectors and employers in Germany. It forms the core of the capital goods industry and is a supplier of innovative solutions for all sectors. Due to their interdisciplinary training, graduates are capable of developing components, sub-assemblies and machines themselves or to manage their overall development. Characteristic of the very multi-layered development processes is the use of modern design and calculation methods.The programme is technically intensive and thematically diverse! The range of elective courses is impressive. Here are you able to continue your education according to your needs.

    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 further develop? We will support you with the technical expertise and equipment of our faculty and 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 Focus Research can be studied in English!
