The research-oriented and consecutive master program Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory is based on the respective bachelor program. In the aptitude test, the bachelor degree in Technical Cybernetics and Systems Theory and equivalent degrees are rated with 50 credit points. Comparable degrees, e. g. in Technical Mathematics, are rated with 40 CP, related degrees e. g. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Computer and Systems Engineering, Mathematics or Mechatronics are rated with 30 CP. Other degrees qualify for 20 CP. In addition to the degree presented, also grades in important subjects or modules are assessed.

This program focusses on acquiring advanced knowledge in systems technology and theory, such as methods for description, analysis, controlling and optimisation of non-linear, event-discrete and hybrid system models of dynamic processes. This program, supported by engineers and mathematicians in equal measure, allows intensive research orientation and at the same time qualifies for professional research practice.
