Information on how to become a doctoral candidate at our university



”I am studying Automotive Software Engineering at Technische Universität Chemnitz because of the provided outstanding environment: we develop course-related applications on original onboard control units of well-known automobile manufacturers. We process data from genuine BMW test vehicles and attend lectures held by guest professors that work for potential future employers, and teach in-depth knowledge and practical experiences.“ 

Chirill Svet, graduate of the Master degree program Automotive Software Engineering

,,The structure of the degree program offers us possibilities of choice and evolvement in the profiles of Hybrid Technologies, Printed Functionalities, Work Design & Sustainability Management and Production Systems. We can apply the skills gained during the projects of the research module on a practical test and amplify them due to the intensive interchange with our professors. The degree program ends with the master thesis in 4th semester in which expert knowledge converges with methodical knowledge.’’

“Studying Micro and Nano Systems was a very good choice for me. I am very passionate about the application-oriented character of the degree programme and the possibilities of research in the clean room facilities at the Center of Microtechnologies at the University Campus. Also, because of the internationally-recognised Master’s degree, I can start my doctora­te anywhere in the world.”

“As far as I’m concerned, there’s no better post-grad course than English Studies at Chemnitz University of Technology. There’s a sense of being close to home yet also part of the world. The diverse range of subjects on offer is both challenging and fun and the opportunities to specialize create a degree programme tailored to me and that’s what I think really sets this programme apart.”
