Studying Abroad

For many years the ISYS has cooperated with a number of internationally recognised institutes from all over the world. In addition to some double-master programmes, students also have the possibility of writing their theses abroad.

International Relations of the ISYS

Over many years, the ISYS has established a number of international cooperations in order promote joint research and to give students the opportunity the broaden their perspective and to advance their scientific skills while studying abroad. The majority of the partner universities are located in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

The cooperation guarantees the continuous exchange of knowledge and enables students to spend some time at a partner university during the second year of their graduate studies or their last semester during their undergraduate time.

Double degree / Joint degree

At some partner universities, a Master's degree in addition to the Master's degree from the University of Stuttgart can be obtained. Other universities offer a joint degree, i.e. one common degree from both universities. These programmes include

  • the first year of the Master studies in Stuttgart,
  • the second year including the thesis work at the partner university
  • as well as an industrial internship during the stay abroad.

A double/joint degree can be obtained at the following partner universities:

The double degree programmes aim at qualified students with majors of the Gemeinsamen Kommission Maschinenbau (Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Cybernetics, Mechatronical Engineering, Process Technology etc.). The right time for application is after the conditional acceptance into graduate school or during the first semester of the Master studies. The studies for the double degree abroad usually start in August/September, but individual starting times may also be the case. Details on the choice of modules can be found in the Module-Handbook of the Master in Mechanical Engineering. For the first year of study at the University of Stuttgart, knowledge of German is required.

Thesis Projects

Usually, research work leading to a Bachelor's or Master's thesis is part of the stay. An overview over partner universities for thesis programs can be found here:
