Seven specializations

The title "Master of Science [Name of the University of Applied Sciences] in Engineering, with specialization in [name of the area of specialization]" can be obtained for the following seven specializations:

  1. Business Engineering and Production (BEP) more...
  2. Energy and Environment (EE) more...
  3. Industrial Technologies (InT) more...
  4. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) more...
  5. Civil Engineering & Building Technology (CEBT) more...
  6. Geomatics (GEO) more...
  7. Spatial Development & Landscape Architecture (SDLA) more...

Studying a specialization

The MSE takes in a broad range of specialist competences. Each of the seven specializations is divided up into competence fields.
Your technical specialization within one of these seven main specializations constitutes the central element of your studies. You study your technical specialization at a Master Research Unit (MRU) at one of the seven Universities of Applied Sciences participating in the MSE. An MRU bundles unique research competence at a high level within an individual specialization. The Universities of Applied Sciences focus on different specializations and competence fields.
Using the MRU Guide, you can find the ideal MRU for the education you require by filtering according to Universities of Applied Sciences, specializations and competence fields.

«I had the opportunity to work on my specialization project at the University of Melbourne in Australia during the first semester. That meant I was not only able to use and expand my knowledge of English – it also brought me into contact with new research fields and the people working in them. The doctoral students came from a wide range of different countries, which was particularly interesting.»
