Finding the right study location

At the Master Research Unit (MRU) of a University of Applied Sciences, you work on a specialization project, compile your Master's thesis and attend supplementary courses (technical specialization, approximately 60 ECTS).
Use the "Focal areas of study" and/or "Universities of Applied Sciences" filters, or the keyword search to find the MRU with the research competence that matches your educational goals.
You should register for your Master's course directly at the University of Applied Sciences offering the MRU at which you would like to take your technical specialization.
The MRUs (=research units at a University of Applied Sciences) conduct projects and assignments for businesses, industry, the public sector and the University of Applied Sciences itself. The projects involve a high level of expertise. Each MRU has many years' experience in applied scientific research and development, and different focal areas of research.
