Mechanical Engineering

Master´s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien


Digitalized Product Development & Simulation

The master’s program with a clear focus provides the know-how to meet the challenges of the new digitalized mechanical engineering. What does mechanical engineering mean in the 21st century? How are existing processes changing as a result of digitalization? How does production become leaner and faster? These questions are answered in this degree program, which covers all aspects of product development and simulation with a focus on digitalization in mechanical engineering. The basic idea is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the entire development and simulation process using state-of-the-art technology and accordingly in a fully digitized environment


The focus of the Master’s program is on the development of machines and systems, starting with the initial brainstorming, through the structured creation of designs, to construction, calculation and simulation. Along this entire development process, industry-standard, state-of-the-art software tools for calculation and simulation are specifically applied in practical exercises and projects.

By combining technical, economic and personality-building content, students acquire a modern, diverse and practical education that subsequently offers a wide range of employment opportunities. The job market is looking for experts who understand, organize, plan and manage this entire development process in a wide variety of mechanical engineering sectors (such as machine tools, automotive engineering, automation technology) in the role of an independently acting project manager.

Practice and Career Prospects

The core of the master’s program in mechanical engineering is the development and design of machines using modern industry-standard simulation software tools (as the essential core of “Industry 4.0“). Accordingly, graduates work in all areas of mechanical engineering product development, from the initial idea to the finished design package that can then be directly manufactured. They also deal with the technical conceptual design and implementation of service, adaptation and upgrade strategies and projects in the machine “mid life cycle”. After a few years of professional experience, managerial positions are often attainable.

Common Job Titles

Concept and design phase:
Development engineer, design engineer, research engineer, manager for CAE (comp. aided engineer), development manager, mechanical designer, product developer, program or product manager, project engineer.

Construction and design phase:
Design engineer*, simulation engineer*, calculation engineer*, application engineer*, calibration engineer*, FMEA engineer, team leader* / department head* in the field of development, design and simulation.


Master’s degree programs build on a completed bachelor’s degree program and allow students to specialize or focus on topics in more detail or to expand their existing expertise.

You must meet subject-matter requirements to be admitted to the Mechanical Engineering master’s degree program. Prerequisites include a bachelor’s degree from a UAS in a relevant subject matter or an equivalent degree from a recognized post-secondary educational institution (at least 180 ECTS credits) in Austria or another country.

If basic equivalence has been established except for a few missing prerequisites, the program director can require students to take exams to establish full equivalence. These exams are taken during the master’s program.
