The FHNW School of Engineering offers the following MSE profiles:

With the master's degree, the highest academic university degree, you prepare your way for responsible positions in research, industry and administration. You are able to take on both challenging activities in a specialist field, as well as management tasks and responsibility for interdisciplinary projects.

Customised master's degree course of study

The core of the degree programme is the individual specialisation within a profile. You will gain this in-depth knowledge through theoretical and practical work at an institute of the FHNW School of Engineering. Throughout your studies, you will be accompanied and supervised by a personal advisor and thus acquire unique competences at a high level within the framework of selected theory modules and practical research and development projects. You will supplement your specialist knowledge with selected theory modules.

This is how you proceed:

  1. You enquire about specialisation options with the relevant profile responsible and/or potential advisor.
  2. You apply for a place on the programme.
  3. The MSE admissions committee decides on your admission.
  4. Once you have been admitted, you and your advisor choose theory modules from the range on offer.
  5. The choice of module and the content of the specialisation are recorded in the Individual Study Agreement (ISV).
