Mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineering (B.Sc.)

The mechanical engineering degree program is a broad-based course of study that deals with the design, development, manufacture and operation of machines and plants. It involves the implementation of mechanical, thermal and electronic principles in practical applications. The mechanical engineering degree program provides solid know-how in the areas of mechanics, design, materials science, manufacturing technology and automation.

What is the degree program about?

Mechanical engineering deals with the most diverse areas: production lines in automotive engineering, engines for aircraft, road or rail vehicles, large ships, power plants or even tiny machines for medical technology – all examples of the development and manufacture of the most diverse products.

In the course of your studies, you will therefore become acquainted with diverse and varied topics, for example technical mechanics, design theory, production engineering, materials science, optics, optical technologies and metrology.

With the completion of the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, you have acquired in-depth technical and methodological knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering. You have the prerequisites to solve technical problems independently and on your own responsibility and are ready to start your career.
