Master's degree in mechanical engineering (no legal status)

Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • effectively and creatively address complex R&D problems and project/applied tasks in the wider field of mechanical engineering, and participate in interdisciplinary integration;
  • address the most complex development tasks autonomously and/or as part of a group;

(subject-specific competences)

  • build on and apply basic mechanical engineering knowledge and implement it in technical development contexts;
  • demonstrate mastery of the basic theoretical and applied knowledge essential for mastery of the technical field of mechanical engineering;
  • demonstrate broad competences in the field of mechanical engineering such as to enable further study in a doctoral programme;
  • carry out physical, mathematical and numerical modelling of problems with a developed capacity for critical analysis of results;
  • autonomously acquire new knowledge and skills;
  • autonomously carry out complex research, development, engineering and technical organisational work and creatively address individual tasks in the field of mechanical engineering;
  • seek optimal solutions on the basis of analysis and synthesis.

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units in all subjects in which they have enrolled and write and defend a master's thesis.

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
