The M.Sc. Paper Science and Technology - paper technology and bio-based fiber materials deepens the engineering skills of mechanical engineering acquired in the bachelor's degree and expands them to include chemical knowledge of the industrial manufacture of paper. Due to the numerous options for specialization and options, the course follows the very personal preferences of the students. It is therefore advisable to get in touch with at the beginning of the master’s programProf. Samuel Schabel (Paper production and mechanical process engineering ) and jointly create an individual study plan.


During your studies, in addition to completing your internship abroad, you can also spend entire semesters abroad.



Paper engineers are in great demand and sought after as specialists. They mainly take on the production of paper, cardboard and cardboard, the production of cellulose and wood pulp as well as the processing of the raw material waste paper and are qualified in the entire field of paper production, the development of machines for the production and finishing of paper and printing technology . Accordingly, they work primarily in the areas of mechanical and plant engineering, process engineering, the chemical industry, the production and processing of materials from renewable raw materials, and research and development.

Employers for graduates in paper engineering can be, for example, corporations in the pulp or paper industry , the paper processing industry , such as the printing or corrugated cardboard industry, or the supplier industry in mechanical engineering, chemistry and clothing. But other than the classic career paths are also conceivable for paper engineers. Examples of this would be in the field of marketing or sales of paper products, but also employment in the creative professions in the advertising industry or engineering and training professions in the printing industry or the processing industry as well as in consulting companies, insurance companies or in the patent system.

It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gain practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove one's general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
