Study Programs at MSE

The MSE study programs impart both basic scientific research skills and interdisciplinary collaboration. This opens up employment opportunities for graduates in the interdisciplinary sectors and job profiles of the future.

Study Programs

On the following pages you will find detailed information about studium MINT as well as about our courses of study Engineering Science (B.Sc.), Human Factors Engineering (M.Sc.) and Industrial Biotechnology (M.Sc.). Information on application, prerequisites and aptitudes for studying can be found under prospective students. Information about studying abroad or working in the student council are also listed.
