Finishing Touches for International Career Opportunities

Technology shapes our lives – it develops at a breathtaking pace, it poses increasingly complex challenges and offers almost unlimited career opportunities. In order to meet the great demand for skilled specialists, Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences offers this Master's degree programme in Engineering Sciences with lectures conducted in English.

By advancing and specialising knowledge acquired at the Bachelor's level as well as offering a wide variety of interdisciplinary content, this course prepares students for challenging engineering activities while teaching them project and leadership responsibility.

Technical Know-How and Soft Skills

The programme is devised as an application-focused course. Its aim is to provide its students with advanced and specialist knowledge in engineering and related areas on a scientific foundation.

Students have the opportunity to specialise in a particular area by choosing one of the following specialist fields in accordance with their particular interests and career aspirations:

  • Mechanical Engineering and Plastics Engineering
  • Mechatronics
  • Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

In addition to providing advanced training in engineering, the course is intended to promote general skills such as teamwork, intercultural communication, and English language skills.

This is supported by the Master's project, which is conducted as a group project in a situation that is as realistic as possible. Students learn methodological skills to organise and complete complex tasks as well as work effectively in a team.

Education Without Borders

Thanks to extensive foreign relations with European and worldwide universities and companies, students can complete a semester abroad at any time during their studies. The International Office will be happy to answer any questions regarding this.

Course organisation

The course contents over the three semesters are independent of each other, so there is no fixed sequence order. However, the majority of courses are offered only once per year.

About 60 to 70% of all courses contain lectures combined with exercises or practical lab class exercises.

Part-time studies are possible on request for candidates who are working in parallel. For part-time studies, the programme duration is six semesters instead of three.

A Diploma supplement will be issued
International elements
  • International guest lecturers
  • Training in intercultural skills
  • Study trips
  • Language training provided
Integrated internships

For international students without industrial experience, it is recommended to include an industrial internship semester after the two theoretical semesters in order to gain practical experience.

Though this is not an official requirement for completing the Master's programme, it usually provides a very good opportunity to develop a Master's thesis topic together with a company in the industry.

University location

Rosenheim is located in the south-eastern part of the German state of Bavaria. Close to the Alps, it is an area rich in scenic beauty and with an impressive cultural heritage. About half an hour's drive from Germany's "high-tech capital", Munich, it is also the centre of a prospering economic region with a population of about 100,000 inhabitants.

The city of Rosenheim is an attractive place to live and study, with its unique Mediterranean flair and beautiful location in a unique landscape of mountains, forests, and lakes. Why not take a short three-hour trip to Italy and enjoy the Lago di Garda or the stunning town of Merano? Additionally, the ski and snowboard resort of Sudelfeld is just 30 minutes away. The Alps and the idyllic Chiemsee – a lake near one of the most famous castles built by the "fairytale king" Ludwig II – await you with year-long recreational activities like winter sports, water sports, and spas. Rosenheim and its surroundings also feature a full calendar of entertaining cultural events. From classical to jazz, pop, and rock, the Culture and Congress Centre in Rosenheim regularly hosts music concerts, guest theatre performances, and social events – there's something entertaining for everyone.

Popular meeting points are small art events, of which there are plenty in Rosenheim. ASTA pub, Theater am Markt, or the Hofbräu are some of the most well-known locations to meet up with friends. Rosenheim's range of events is significantly broadened by the attractions at the Ballhaus, and the Citydome cinema complex shows a wide range of films. The newly built municipal library in Rosenheim serves not only as a meeting point for young people, but it also promotes learning with its large and sophisticated collection of books, CDs, and DVDs.
