Technical Documentation, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 18 months
Complex technical products and feature-rich software have an increasing impact on all areas of our lives. Technical documentation media play an important role in ensuring that we can use new devices both quickly and safely as well as enjoy using them. They also ensure that products or systems comply with any legal requirements. 


Graduates of this postgraduate course are qualified technical editors and are increasingly sought-after on the job market.

The internationalisation of companies together with the requirement to reach different target groups with different documentation products while at the same time keeping costs as low as possible are among the future challenges to be faced by documentation professionals in companies. The postgraduate Master’s course addresses such challenges – our students extend their specialist knowledge and develop their professional skills both on an academic level and in discussions with experts from relevant fields.

The course is organised on a part-time basis and includes modular compulsory attendance phases (a total of around eleven weekends in the first two semesters) as well as e-learning and supervised self-guided study. Appointments for the Master’s thesis seminar in the third semester are arranged on an individual basis.

The course is designed to meet the needs of students in employment and is particularly suitable for those who already have experience of working in specific fields of technical documentation. Due consideration is given to professional experience in the teaching concept developed for the course.
