International Dual Degree Programme

International Dual Degree Programme [(Master of Engineering in Electrical and Microsystems Engineering) and (Master of Science in Solid State Physics)]

Our new Master degree programme places a strong focus on electronics and semiconductor technology. It provides a solid theoretical background as well as a minimum of 6 months internship in one of our international partner companies (e.g. Osram, Infineon Technologies, Continental Automotive Corporation) in Malaysia or Germany. Besides the classic master programme there is the possibility of a dual degree. This dual degree programme offers you the opportunity to obtain a Master degree from Malaysia (USM Penang) in combination with an accredited European Master degree (M. Eng in Electrical and Microsystems Engineering) from OTH Regensburg (Germany) simultaneously. The course is constructed to enable students to work independently, efficiently and responsibly using scientific methods and problem-solving techniques. Aside from conveying technical expertise, the course is designed to build personalities and leadership knowledge and skills. Graduates will be equally proficient in performing technical tasks and leadership roles.

Lectures in Malaysia or Germany:
Min. 24 months (min. of 12 months in Germany) / Max 8 semesters

Master thesis in Malaysia or Germany (usually in a company):
Min. 6 months
