Modern mechanical engineering sees itself as an engineering science that deals with the fundamentals as well as the development and application of methods, technical processes, technologies, facilities, tools, machines and systems. The master’s degree in mechanical engineering is primarily intended for graduates with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, vehicle and engine technology and technology management.

The first two semesters consist of a combination of in-depth engineering basics and two thematic specializations. In the specialization subjects, you have a wide range of options from around 40 different subjects. In the third semester, the industrial internship and the study project serve to deepen practical experience and scientific knowledge. The fourth semester is devoted to the master's thesis, which is written in one of the two specializations.



  • Completion of an undergraduate bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering (or an equivalent degree) of at least six semesters or a degree with similar content with qualifying examination results at a German university or equivalent university, technical college, cooperative university or vocational academy. Alternatively: equivalent degree with qualifying examination results from a foreign university.
  • The knowledge and skills of the acquired degree must be awarded to the B.Sc. Mechanical engineering at the University of Stuttgart must be equivalent in scope and claim.



The career prospects for graduates of the master’s degree in mechanical engineering are excellent. The industry increasingly demands highly qualified engineers with broad and deep basic knowledge.

After completing your degree, you can, for example, choose from the following professional reports:

  • research
  • development
  • construction
  • Project management
  • attempt
  • distribution
  • Manufacturing and production
  • Quality management
  • Technical management
  • Corporate governance.

The spectrum of possible industries ranges from classic plant and mechanical engineering through medical technology and precision engineering to energy technology and process engineering.
