Study objectives

The academic master’s degree programme in Mechanical Engineering gives graduates technical leadership skills in technical operations in all kinds of businesses, particularly in the construction and manufacturing sectors, as well as in technical administration and consultancy companies.

The degree programme is technically oriented with additional modules on business administration and information technology and enables graduates to gain an integrative and responsible understanding of tasks in technically oriented management roles.

Graduates will be able to confidently recognise complex issues in the specified fields and analyse them using scientific methods to find targeted and effective solutions. They will be further able to take on responsibility for technical tasks. Immediately after graduating, or after gaining a small amount of initial work experience, graduates will be able to take on leadership, project and HR responsibilities.

Admission requirements and applicationOpen areaClose area

General admission requirements

Admission qualifications

Specific admission requirements

(1) A professional first degree (e.g. diploma, bachelor’s, master’s). If this degree is based upon the ECTS credit point system, then it must comprise at least 210 Credit Points. …

(2) Language skills: To be admitted to this degree programme, overseas applicants must possess sufficient German language skills. This may be demonstrated with an overall grade of DSH-2 or better from the Deutsche Sprachprüfung für Hochschulen (DSH) language exam.

(3) Applicants must demonstrate that they hold a relevant specialist qualification upon submission of their application along with their relevant university degree. Completion of a degree programme in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering, Industrial Engineering or Aviation Engineering is considered as a sufficient specialist qualification. Applicants from other degree programmes must have studied a degree covering closely related areas, demonstrating that they have sufficiently covered the necessary specialist areas. This may include the following areas: Mechanics, physics, materials technology, production methods and engineering, design technology, information technology, tool machines, automation technology and quality management. If these requirements are not met, then students may be admitted on a case by case basis with specific support provided. The final decision lies with the faculty Examinations Board.

(4) In accordance with the Regulations of the TH Wildau for the selection of students for degree programmes with restricted admission criteria, a motivation letter written in English will also be required as an admission requirement (in the case of this degree programme), in which the applicant describes his/her motivation for the selected degree programme or why it appeals so strongly over a minimum of two pages and a maximum of three pages. This motivation letter must be submitted on time with the other application documentation.


You can apply to TH Wildau online. All the information you need to apply can be found on our central application page.
