Applied Research in Engineering Sciences

The Applied Research in Engineering Sciences (M-APR) master’s degree programme offers talented graduates the opportunity to gain a higher qualification in applied research and development (aFuE). The programme is linked to a research project at Nuremberg Tech (funded or industry-sponsored project), which is completed over a period of three semesters.

The degree programme qualifies graduates to work independently on applied research projects in engineering sciences. Not only are students able to familiarize themselves with specialized content, they will also learn about the organizational processes that occur in complex company-wide projects (e.g. national and EU-funded projects).

Degree:Master of Science
Program duration:3 semesters
Admission restrictions:Degree programme-specific
Language of instruction:German
Special features:

The following eight Bavarian universities of applied sciences have joined forces to offer “Master of Applied Research” degree programmes under common rules: Amberg/Weiden, Ansbach, Augsburg, Deggendorf, Ingolstadt, Munich, Nuremberg, and Regensburg.

The curriculum is closely linked to specific applied research and development projects and are accompanied by more in-depth teaching modules that are geared towards the selected project. The subject-specific focus depends on the project subject or the course components selected. These can be freely combined from the fields of electrical engineering and information technology, mechatronics/precision engineering, and from other similar subject areas. This guarantees a diverse range of research topics and course components that allow students to establish links to research institutes and companies that are extremely valuable for their future professional career.

Admission semester:Winter semester or summer semester
Application period:For the winter semester: 2 May to 15 July
For the summer semester: 15 November to 15 December
