Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc.)

General Information

The Master’s programme in mechanical engineering at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences qualifies you to undertake demanding tasks related to the development, design and production of modern industrial goods. Now more than ever, mechanical engineering companies find themselves caught between the opposing poles of the three main determiners - the environment, society and technology. Only those who pay due regard to all three areas can be successful. This Master's programme therefore focuses on “Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering” and teaches you about procedures and technologies which can be used to enable the products of the future to fulfil their function with less material and lower energy consumption.

The broad-based, practice-oriented fundamental knowledge gained in the Bachelor’s programme is consolidated in the lectures offered in the Master’s programme. You will gain more in-depth theoretical insights into the mechanical engineering topics of the future from experienced lecturers and part-time instructors from industry. Research projects are used to teach students the methods of scientific working and how to apply the latest engineering methods. Social skills and soft skills also form part of the curriculum. On completion of your Master’s degree programme, you are qualified to do your doctorate at a university.

Application documents

Application documents required for admission:

  • Proof of the successful completion of an appropriate university degree course including details of the average grade obtained (certified copy of the certificate is only required for enrollment)
  • Diploma supplement Alternatively, a copy of the study and examination plan on which it is based or
  • Module description (of the Bachelor's degree obtained) with an Internet address, where possible (this section does not apply to graduates of the Bachelor’s programme in mechanical engineering at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences)
  • Form - application for admission to the “Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering” Master's programme

Appendix to the application for admission

  • Application without a degree certificate from a preceding Bachelor’s programme: Transcript of Records, which may not have been issued more than four weeks before the application deadline.

Applicants may be granted provisional admission on the basis of these documents. Note: The provisional admission can be revoked when the overall grade stated on the degree certificate is worse than the provisional overall grade calculated. If this means places on the programme then become available, a process may be implemented whereby applicants who were not initially considered move up the list.


Applicants with a degree from a foreign university

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences requires a university degree gained at a foreign university to be recognised by the Center for International Students at Constance University of Applied Sciences (Studienkolleg Konstanz).


Career prospects

A Degree Programme with a Bright Future

This Master's programme focuses on “Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering” and teaches you about procedures and technologies which can be used to enable the products of the future to fulfil their function with less material and lower energy consumption.
