Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Winter and summer semester
Relevant/appropriate Bachelor's degree
(There is a case-by-case review with respect to the necessary professional and linguistic knowledge and the proof of a minimum 10-week industrial placement. The Examination Board may, if necessary, permit admission under conditions amounting to a maximum of 30 CPs and / or the completion of an industrial placement. Both should be performed after 2 semesters at the latest. Requirements of more than 15 CPs lead to an additional semester (bridge semester), the study duration is therefore extended by one semester.)
without admission restriction
Applicants with German university degree - apply
at OVGU Magdeburg:
- winter semester: September 15
- summer semester: March 15
Applicants with international university degree - apply through uni-assist
- winter semester: July 15
- summer semester: January 15
The studies complete the preceding Bachelor's degree program and emphasize especially the holistic view of technical-organizational and economic contexts.
The aim of the studies is to acquire a broad but at the same time detailed and critical under-standing of the specialist knowledge and the ability to work independently with scientific methods. Students acquire the competence to independently familiarize with the various tasks of the related application, research or teaching fields of activity as well as the ability to cope with the frequently changing tasks which occur in professional life.
Depending on the chosen major and the selec-tion of the elective modules, individual goals can be defined by the student.
- Automotive Systems
- Product Development - Design and calculation
- Production Engineering
- Production Systems - operation and organization
A mandatory enrollment in a major is required upon matriculation at the latest.
The major "Automotive Systems"
provides an overview of the current and future drive systems and enables the scientific specialization in single systems up to the component level.
At the center of the major "Product Development"
are primarily the development, design and calculation of components, assemblies and complete systems.
The major "Production Engineering"
orients thereby increasingly on the use of machinery and equipment as well as on the determination of technological data for the targeted production starting from raw material to finished product.
The major "Production Systems"
concentrates on the dispositive work performances planning, management, organization and control of pro-duction of goods and services in order to achieve technical, social, economic and ecological objectives.
The graduates are able to perform leading or self-employed activities in the investment and consumer goods industry (e. g. in the sectors: mechanical engineering, tool manufacturing, automotive, electrical/electronics, engineering offices, aviation/aerospace, iron/sheet/metal, medical engineering, plastics, building materials) both in application and engineering services as well as in research.
On the other hand, appropriate activities in sci-ence and education are possible. With corre-sponding interest, attractive jobs in technical sales are also open to graduates.
Competencies and Interests Required
Good to very good knowledge of the basic sub-jects of economics and mechanical engineering in general;
Interest in thinking in systems, structures and control circuits as well as in complex problem solving, in working in interdisciplinary teams and in taking over management responsibilities
This Master's degree gained at the Otto-von-Guericke-University is qualitatively and quantitatively equivalent to a diploma in Industrial Engineering / Mechanical Engineering.
