The degree program
Studies in the master's degree program automotive engineering are the second section of a consecutive engineering course. It prepares for professions that require increased qualifications as an engineer. In particular, the view of the entirety of the subject is increased, which develops the ability to work independently and to develop new methods. Based on the elements and principles taught in the Bachelor's degree program, both natural and engineering sciences elements and principles and the aspects of mechanical engineering are expanded and reinforced. The focus is put on the subjects of vehicle technology and the connected production technology. A good understanding of the overall vehicle is to be developed, qualifying graduates to contribute to the development and optimization of driving dynamic systems and vehicle structures.
At the beginning of the master's degree program, specific subjects around the subject of automotive engineering are repeated and expanded on at the master's level.
The students further develop their competences in comprehensive modules:
The module W5 "Cross-section subjects" makes it possible to acquire knowledge from adjacent disciplines or to study a foreign language in more detail. The elective module W6 serves to reinforce engineering sciences subjects. The required six weeks' industrial internship makes it possible to apply the acquired theoretical knowledge in practice, and to become familiar with practical issues of scientific processing.
With the final master's thesis, the students document that they are able to independently process a scientific issue or task typical for their profession at the latest state of knowledge and with scientific methods and to appropriately present their findings. After successful completion of the master's degree program, the academic title of Master of Science, in short M.Sc., is awarded, which is equivalent to the former diploma degree. The title Master of Science also entitles all those who would like to continue to work in areas with strong research after their studies to pursue doctoral studies.
1) Bachelor's degree in automotive engineering, automotive engineering, mechanical engineering at least with the grade satisfactory (3.0) or any other technically equivalent degree program of at least three years with a completed Bachelor's exam or an equivalent final examination at least with grade satisfactory (3.0).
To prove educational background referring to the degree program the preceding bachelor's degree program must correspond to at least 70% of the ECTS credits of the respective Bachelor's degree program of the University of Siegen in the subject focuses. The subject catalogues of these Bachelor's study programs can be found in the degree plans that are part of this annex to the examination regulations. Support for calculation of the ratio can be found in the Excel tables:
www.mb.uni-siegen.de/pruefungsamt/bewerb; the printouts of the completed tables must be enclosed with the application.
2) Knowledge of the German language (for foreigners who are not native speakers of German, documented by the German language examination for university access (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang; DSH) or the German as a foreign language test (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache; TestDaF) or equivalent).
The examination regulations relevant at the time shall apply.
Proof of at least six weeks of industrial internship that must be completed at the latest when completing the master's degree program. Details are specified in the internship rules.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
