The aim of a master’s degree is to gain a further professional qualification. The course combines theory and practice and is conducted in German.
The qualification objectives of our master’s degree are:
· technical expertise
leads to work as an engineer with technical expertise,
· scientific skills
graduates can assess what impacts developments will have, and assess them according to civil and ethical aspects, as well as technical ones,
· social and soft skills
team skills, ability to present results and use communication techniques. Besides expert knowledge, these aspects are key to the daily working life of an engineer.
Career Opportunities - During the master's degree programme our students gain advanced technical skills in both automation technology and electrical power engineering. The course has theoretical and practical components; this means that our graduates are able to work in research and development, frequently with the possibility of earning a higher salary. In the long-term graduates have good prospects of a career in management. Currently, there are excellent career prospects in both automation technology and electrical power engineering.
A university of applied sciences course is very different to a university one. It features:
· small class sizes,
· applied research, and
· supporting lab exercises to illustrate theoretical content.
· forge contact with industry and potential employers during the project semester,
· quickly find work in industry, as course content is tailored to the needs of companies,
· have gained practical experience through ongoing lab exercises during the course and the project semester.
The master's degree programme is open to graduates of our bachelor's course, as well as external applicants with an electrical engineering qualification. Students can begin studying either directly following graduation from an initial degree programme, or after gaining preliminary experience in the world of work.
