Admission requirements

The Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences (Frankfurt UAS) has a locational advantage: It has close contacts to numerous commercial enterprises in the Rhine-Main region, which the students can benefit from. This also applies to the mechanical engineering sector, the automotive industry and the supply industry.

Faculty 2: Computer Science and Engineering offers a broad range of bachelor degree courses in the field of mechanical engineering. As a particularly qualified graduate (also from other institutions of higher education) you can further extend and deepen your knowledge by studying the four semester-long master degree course "General Mechanical Engineering". You can choose from five different fields of specialization — with 14 or 15 modules, depending on the respective field (see module overview). The overall course of study requires 120 ECTS credits. You will demonstrate your skills to independently solve technical problems in two scientific engineering projects, one practical project and in the work on the master thesis.

A first engineering-scientific professional academic degree (bachelor or diploma) with a regular period of study of at least six semesters or a final grade of better than 2.8 and 180 ECTS is a prerequisite.

A letter of motivation as well as a CV is to be submitted along with the regular application documents.

You should possess subject-related knowledge of the English language next to meeting the requirements for the knowledge of the German language for higher education.

The admission takes place after an interview.

The studies can be started either in the summer semester (application deadline is January 15) or in the winter semester (application deadline: July 15).

The degree course is not admission restricted.

Part-time studies

Students, whose course of study has deviated from the regular course of full-time studies – for whatever reason – can seek personal counseling from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

Goal of the counseling is, while considering personal conditions of an individual course of study, to graduate in an appropriate period of time. In order to reach this goal, we will develop a course plan together with you.

It is also checked whether there are reasons for a formal application of part-time studies. Additional information about the requirements and study organization of part-time studies can be found on the pages of the Admissions office.

The consultation is offered by the degree course counselors or the degree counselor of your degree course. Please schedule an appointment via email.
