On this page you will find further information on the admission requirements, the application process and the FAQs of the Master's programme International Mechatronics.

Admission requirements

  • General

    The admission regulations (jointly for mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics and robotics, as well as some other study programmes) can be found on the university’s main page. All the regulations listed here can be found in the admission regulations in the respective paragraphs.

    All students with a bachelor's degree in a related engineering degree may apply to the programme. These may include bachelor’s degrees in (not exclusively):

    • Mechatronics
    • Mechanical engineering
    • Electrical engineering
    • Robotics
    • Electromechanics
    • ...
  • Formal/non subject-specific admission requirements
    • Curriculum Vitae
    • Bachelor’s degree (submitted with a transcript of records) in a closely related field of study. If the certificate is not yet available, at least 5/6 (83,3..(3)%) of the curriculum must be fulfilled. In this case, the candidate must submit the transcript of records with the exact specification of the credits (of the study programme) during the application and subsequently file the Bachelor's certificate. The contact persons for this matter (and in case of further questions) are staff members of the Admissions Office. It is important for applicants to note: your university has to be recognized internationally, meaning they have to have H+ status on Anabin (s. admission regulations, §2 subs. 1, b)).
    • University Entrance Qualification (eg. school leaving certificate or High School Diploma) as a scan from the original or a certified copy
    • Proof of adequate proficiency in the English language (admissions regulations §2, subs.3). It is sufficient to substantiate level C1 (TOEFL minimum 95 points, IELTS 7.0, CAE - Certificate of Advanced English). For more detailed information, please see the following links: Applied Linguistics and Special Languages Department and Intern Office
    • A letter of motivation must be submitted with the application documents. It is recommended to not only detail the motivation for studying in Germany, but also to detail the advantages of Double Degree programme in cooperation with Saint Petersburg University.
    • If available, an official module catalog of your Bachelors Degree from your university detailing your course contents, hours and credit.
    • Completed online application form
    • Applicants from China, Mongolia and Vietnam (except Macao und Hongkong) need an APS-certificate
    • Copy of personal identification, i.e. passport
  • Subject-specific admission requirements

    Basic principles of electrical engineering (including their variation such as "theory of electromagnetic fields"), electric drives, power electronics, electrical machines (motors)

    electronics (general), mechatronic systems or similar courses

    Control electronics, microelectronics, logic circuits, automation

    Technical Mechanics

    15 Credits

    Technical Mechanics or the following courses: Strength, Motion, Vibration Mechanics, Kinematics / Dynamics, Machine Dynamics

    Machine theory, mechanical design, mechatronic systems or similar courses

    Fluid mechanics, pneumatics, etc.

    Control engineering / Measuring technology

    10 Credits

    Control engineering: basic, control engineering: discrete or non-linear systems, basic measurement technology (metrology)

    statistics and probability

    automation technology, control technology, PLC systems, control systems, logistics

    With this chart, you can quickly evaluate your subject-specific eligibility to be admitted to the International Mechatronics M.Sc. study programme. The Admissions Committee carries out the examination of the subject-specific requirements during its June/July meeting. During this process, the transcript of records submitted by an applicant is analysed.

Application process

You can find a comprehensive description of the application process on the LUH website. Here you will find a summary and additional information

  • Only online applications are accepted.
    Application portals:

    • Applications from Africa, Europe and America via the LUH portal.
    • Applications from Asia, the Middle East, Indonesia and Australia must be directly addressed to Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia.
  • Only applies to EU applications: Send the application cover sheet and all relevant application documents compiled into a single PDF file in the order given in the checklist to the Admissions Office of Leibniz Universität Hannover (studium@uni-hannover.de).

  • An entrance examination is conducted in the form of an interview (30 min) in English for all these applicants, where technical questions from the mechatronics field need to be answered.

  • The decisions from the admissions process for the admitted 10 students are released Mid-end July.

  • After successfully applying, you will have to apply for a visa for Russia as the first two semesters are spent in Russia (s. FAQs below for details)
