The Double Master Degree Program offers students of mechanical engineering the opportunity to study their third semester at Tongji University, perform an internship in China during the fourth semester and head back to Tongji for writing their master thesis in the fifth semester.
By taking part in this program, students can earn a double master degree from both universities within five semesters. The close long-term relations between the Automotive Engineering department at TU Darmstadt and the School of Automotive Studies at Tongji University provide a fundamental basis for a seamless co-supervision of the master thesis.
- 3rd master semester: study at Tongji
- 4th master semester: internship
- 5th master semester: master thesis at Tongji, co-supervision with TU Darmstadt
Because of the highly international nature and a diversified exchange with Germany, most of the courses at Tongji University are held in English or German, so exams in Chinese language are not necessary.
By structuring the study plan for the master program in accordance with the guidelines of both Tongji University and TU Darmstadt, a master degree from both institutions can be obtained. A professor at Tongji University acts as a mentor to the students and the master thesis is written under the mentor’s guidance. A recognition of the internship as an advanced internship (discipline-oriented internship) is possible.
