Are you studying Automotive Engineering and Transport or Production Engineering and would like to add an international component to your studies in the form of a second degree? Then the Wroclaw Double Degree Program offers you the opportunity to complete your studies at the RWTH Aachen University as well as to get to know the study system and life at one of the leading technical universities in Poland. You can expect an exciting, varied and internationally oriented course of study, which will not only improve your knowledge of the country and its languages, but will also award you a double degree from internationally renowned universities. This gives you an exceptional qualification that will enrich you personally and academically and make you stand out in your working life.


The program enables the participation of four students per academic year, the language of teaching is English.

The following courses can be taken at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, WUST for short:

  • Master Automotive Engineering
  • Master Production Management


How does the Double Degree Program work with WUST?

You will complete your Bachelor studies regularly at RWTH Aachen University. Ideally, and in order not to risk a further delay in your studies by participating in the WUST exchange, you will start your master studies in a mechanical engineering master course in the summer semester, which follows the application period. You complete the regular first master semester and then continue your studies for 1 year at WUST. There you will attend the planned modules in your course of studies. Modules with a maximum volume of 30 CP can be integrated into your local curriculum as part of a change of curriculum.

After your stay at WUST, you will return to RWTH Aachen University and complete your thesis (supervision by professors of RWTH Aachen University and WUST professors). With the award of the "Master of Science RWTH Aachen University" you will also receive the WUST Master's degree.

What services are included in participation in the program?

Participation in the Wroclaw Double Degree Exchange frees you from the tuition fees of the partner university. In addition, you are guaranteed a place in a student residence (subject to a fee). The International Office of the partner university provides on-site support.

You will receive an ERASMUS scholarship for a period of up to 12 months.

Which academic qualifications will be recognized through participation in the program?

Participants are able to have up to 30 CP recognised for their local Master's program within the framework of a change of curriculum. The extended duration of study (up to 2 semesters) justifies the award of two degrees.
