I'm currently in my 3rd year of BTech Mechanical Studies with 2.29 german grade equivalent with 1-2 month industry internships and few projects, do I need a formal work experience to apply for Masters in Systems Engineering or Mechatronics, does work experience increase your chances of getting selected?

Having relevant work experience(WE) is recommended but not mandatory. From our experience, if you're overall academic score is good, not-having WE shouldn't be a blocker. However, if you're fellow applicant has better profile with WE then he stands a better chance than you.

Our suggestion for you is to have relevant work experience if you can. Meanwhile keep applying for universities. If you happen to get an admit, you can always leave the job.

Note: Applications for mechanical courses are quite competitive in Germany
