The master’s degree in teaching science and technology (NwT) is the second section of university teaching and builds on the bachelor’s degree in terms of subject matter and content.

In the master’s degree, you deepen the scientific and technical skills acquired in the bachelor’s degree in the specialist sciences and subject didactics. Educational and practical course contents prepare well-founded for the later work as a teacher. Due to the engineering orientation of the University of Stuttgart, you can choose from a variety of course contents that are important for a subject-related consideration of natural science and technology in NwT lessons.



  • 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 fields of activity of NwT teachers primarily extend to the general high schools in Baden-Württemberg. Since the school year 2016/17, NwT has also been offered as a profile subject in the intermediate level at community schools.
