This master’s course deepens knowledge of mechanical engineering and offers specialization in the field of microtechnology, device technology and technical optics. following fields of work:

  • Micro or nano technology
  • Microsystem technology
  • Electronics manufacturing
  • Actuators in device technology
  • Device design and manufacture
  • Lasers in material processing
  • Technical optics and optical measuring methods
  • Biomedical engineering and medical device engineering

The course is science-based, research-oriented, but also application-oriented. Students benefit from extensive support offers.

An important part of the course is a twelve-week industrial internship. It gives students an insight into the world of work in a growth market.



  • Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
  • Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
  • Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations

Admission with conditions

In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .

Graduated from a university of applied sciences

A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.

Admission restriction (NC)

In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.

Course-specific features

Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:



The career prospects for graduates of the M.Sc. Mechanical engineering / microtechnology, device technology and technical optics are excellent. The areas of micro and nanotechnology as well as precision engineering and device technology as well as optical technologies are open to you.

In mechanical engineering, automation technology, but also in vehicle technology or the life sciences, your knowledge of micro and device technology as well as optical technologies will help you to create more value. The spectrum of possible activities ranges from research and development to marketing and sales to management and business management.
