Entry requirements

The master's programme in Mechanical Engineering–Management follows on directly from the bachelor's course in Mechanical Engineering–Management (E 033 282) at TU Wien. Graduates of the bachelor's course in Mechanical Engineering–Management are therefore admitted to this master's course without restriction. Graduates in other subjects are subject to an assessment of their suitability for the course by the responsible governing body according to section 64, paragraph 5 of Austria's Universities Law (UG) 2002.


Graduates of this master's programme will have acquired a knowledge of basic theoretical principles and specialist skills, as well as problem-solving, economic and social skills. This enables them to independently initiate and promote developments, to assess available resources with regard to their use in relevant processes, to plan and coordinate the introduction of technologies, to lead teams, to quickly gain an understanding of new subject areas, to competently present and represent ideas and results and also to evaluate the social, economic and ecological effects of technical developments and promote humane technologies. These skills are prerequisites for doctoral studies or a successful career in industry.

Course content

The course is multidisciplinary and has a modular structure which allows for a high degree of flexibility. The master's thesis accounts for 30 ECTS (i.e. one semester) and the remaining ECTS credits are optional modules, which can be arranged as students wish, as long as certain rules are observed, to form a more in-depth and specialised degree programme. Overall, the master's course in Mechanical Engineering–Management offers seven modules for more in-depth study:

  • Organisation & Strategic Management
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Logistics Management
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Quality Management
  • Financial Management
  • Risk Management

These modules are supplemented by additional optional modules in Mechanical Engineering. It is thus possible to enhance the basic knowledge obtained in the bachelor's course with specific education in a field of interest to the student, and thus to acquire a suitable profile for a particular specialisation.

Study abroad and work placements

As part of the European exchange programmes (ERASMUS, SOCRATES), it is possible to spend one or two semesters studying in another EU country. Study abroad is formally recognised and the process is straightforward with few bureaucratic hurdles. There are also specific bilateral agreements with universities in other countries (such as the USA). Further information can be obtained from the Dean's office, the Dean of Mechanical Engineering or the Chair of the Studies Commissions.
