In many European countries, a master’s is the second degree that students can acquire by completing a program of study at university. The standard duration of most master’s programs at TU Clausthal is four semesters.
A prerequisite for any master’s degree program is a completed bachelor’s program. Each bachelor’s program at TU Clausthal has at least one master’s program that counts as consecutive to it, i.e. as its natural progression (see Permitted bachelor’s and master’s combinations). Once you have your bachelor’s degree, you do not need to go through a separate application and selection procedure to be allowed to start a consecutive master’s program.
If you gained your bachelor’s degree somewhere other than TU Clausthal, please consult the Prerequisites section on the page of the master’s program you wish to undertake, to find out what else you may need to do before signing up. A master’s degree is equivalent to the Diplom degree that German universities used to offer. Master’s graduates are qualified to embark on doctorate studies.
In line with TU Clausthal’s profile, our master’s program in chemistry is focused less on fundamental research as such and more on materials and processes.
Power Systems Engineering
Studying power systems engineering opens up a broad range of fields of work throughout the energy system.
Our Mining Engineering students will be trained in a diversity of fields regarding the raw material production.
Even in this era of transformation for climate protection and the energy system, the fossil fuels oil and natural gas remain an essential pillar of our society.
Decision-making in management often involves close interrelationships between business issues and matters of engineering.
Environmental Process Engineering and Recycling
How we deal with garbage, waste water, and emissions, taking into account technological, economic, and social issues, is what this degree program is all about.
Process Engineering/Chemical Engineering *
The master’s program imparts the more in-depth expertise that is required for positions of responsibility, particularly in research and development.
Business Information Systems *
The digitalization of our society could not be more topical, concerning everything from digital factories, to sustainable mobility, to digital aspects of the shift to greener energy.
Business and Engineering
Students are introduced to state-of-the-art research areas in the three focuses they can choose from: production and processes, management of energy and mineral resources, and materials engineering.
