General Information:

Mechanical Engineering is not only concerned with development, design and optimization. It also means getting others excited about your ideas. That’s why the programme combines engineering and business skills. Skills that enable you to take on a leadership role in a technology-oriented company.  A compulsory work placement and practical project work in the University’s modern state-of-the-art laboratories ensure that theoretical knowledge can be put into practice right from the start. It also allows sufficient flexibility for further specialisation in areas of individual interest, such as Automotive Engineering, Laser Technology, Production Engineering or Polymer Technology.

  • Physics and Chemistry
  • Computer Science for Engineers

The second group, Fundamentals of Engineering, provides engineering-related course content, such as

  • Technical Mechanics
  • Material Science
  • Strength of Materials
  • Machine Parts I
  • Development and Design I
  • Electrical Engineering I
  • Dynamics of Machines
  • Technical Thermodynamics
  • Technical Fluid Mechanics

The third group, Applied Engineering, involves the following topics:

  • Development and Design II
  • Machine Parts II
  • Manufacturing Technology and Quality Assurance
  • Plastics Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering II
  • Measurement Technology
  • Energy Conversion in Engines and Machines

In the 6th and 7thsemester, students may choose one of the following areas of specialisation:

  • Automotive Engineering
  • Laser Technology
  • Production Engineering
