About the Department MB / UT

Strong in Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Technology

The Department of Mechanical Engineering/Environmental Technology (MB/UT) trains the engineers of tomorrow.

Our Bachelor's degree programmes include Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Digital Automation, Plastics Engineering, Patent Engineering, Biological and Environmental Process Engineering, and Energy Technology and Energy Efficiency.

In addition, you can specialise in two master's degree programmes: In Innovation-Focused Mechanical Engineering or Environmental Technology, you will deepen your knowledge and set the course for your successful career. This way you are perfectly equipped for the future.

In addition to teaching, research is a central topic at our department. One example of many: Our centre of excellence for combined heat and power. Since 2012, this centre has bundled the research activities and know-how of our department in the area of resource-saving energy production.

Research and teaching form a unity in a special way in our high-tech laboratories. Theoretical and application-oriented concepts complement each other.
