Applicants from non-European Union countries will need to use Uni Assist platform for verification of the required documents.
Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
Completion of a relevant bachelor’s degree of at least 6 semesters or a higher-quality comparable university degree.
For master’s courses: Most courses at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences are consecutive. This means that there is a technical connection between a bachelor’s degree and the subsequent master’s degree. Access to the master’s courses is open to graduates from “related” bachelor’s courses at other universities in Germany and abroad. On a case-by-case basis, missing ECTS points in certain subject areas must be made up after consultation with the course director.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / German.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
Attention: if given preliminary admission, international applicants MUST provide legalised documents translated to German or English for the following documents:
Legalisation confirms the authenticity of documents, signatures and authorities that issued the document. Three scenarios are possible depending on the issuing country:
To see if and what legalisation you would need for your diploma, please refer to this Legalization of Foreign Documents in Higher Education document
B2 level (according to the European Framework of Reference)
Please also attach the following documents:
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
Please be aware that the visa process can take up to 3 months, therefore you should send your application as early as possible! For more details on the visa application please visit the following webpage: www.oead.at
Mechanical Engineering is a well-established degree programme with many modern trends like simulation, lightweight construction, bionics to name only a few. The development of simultaneously ever lighter but stronger components in motor vehicles, aircraft or satellites, as well as in the manufacturing or plant construction industries, requires the use of sophisticated, innovative methods of calculation, simulation and analysis. The benefits achieved for society and the economy form the sustainable basis of our highly-engineered world.
Numerical simulations such as experimental testing and trials are increasingly being used in wide areas of mechanical and plant engineering, aerospace and the steel and plastics processing industries. This applies both to the strength and dynamic analysis of machines and machine components, as well as to the analysis and simulation of production and manufacturing processes.
Graduates are given the ability to independently and efficiently solve development, calculation, research or optimization tasks in different industries. The courses for the necessary technical specialist and basic knowledge are rounded off by economic subjects and courses to promote social skills.
The master’s course is intended to complement and deepen the basic bachelor’s course. The concept of the course is designed in such a way that it can generally be completed by graduates of Bachelor courses with a technical (mechanical engineering) orientation.
