Overview of dates and deadlines


The degree program

At the beginning of the master's degree program, there is a block of four large modules with which the mathematical and engineering elements and principles (mathematical methods, technical mechanics, fluid & thermo dynamics and higher measuring technology) are reinforced. These modules have the target to bring students with different initial qualifications to a consistent state of knowledge.

The students set their own focuses in the master's degree program: Depending on their inclinations and interests, they choose applied engineering and, at a lesser degree, business-administration contents from comprehensive catalogues. Experimental and programming-technical specialist labs in small groups serve practical specialization and supplementation.

The students further develop their competences in comprehensive modules: The module P4 "Ergonomics" creates the reference between engineering and work-scientific insights (interface "man-machine"). The elective module W8 permits reinforced studies of a foreign language (English, French or Spanish) and thus improves international perspectives. Business-administration knowledge is acquired in addition to this.

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.

An efficient degree program suggests focus on selected specializations in order to consider individual interests of the students and to be able to compile sensible combinations of elective modules. Elements and principles for possible specialization are:

  • Applied mechanical & control technology
  • Computational Engineering
  • Energy technology
  • Production
  • Construction
  • Flow & heat technology
  • Environmental technology
  • Material technology


Admission requirements

1) Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Siegen, 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:
http://www.mb.uni-siegen.de/department/pruefungsamt/downloads/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.


Important information


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.


Study organization

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.
