Studying Master of Engineering

The Master of Engineering (M. Eng. or ME) is a postgraduate Master's degrees that is achieved for a studies in one of the engineering sciences. The study duration of a Master of Engineering programme differs. There are 1-year as well as 2-year Master programmes offered. According to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) on average 30 credits each semester have to be achieved. A one-year programme has therefore typically 60 ECTS, a two-year programme 120 ECTS accordingly.

The Master of Engineering is academically equal to the Master of Science and Master of Arts. It is however common practise to award the Master of Engineering for rather practical oriented programmes at universities of applied sciences, whereas engineering programmes at universities are awarded with the Master of Science (M. Sc.).

Due to the numerous possibilities for specialisations in the area of Engineering there are further degree types such as the Master of Science in Engineering (M.Sc. in Eng.), the Master of Business Administration and Engineering (MBAE) or the Master of Business Engineering (MBE).
