About this program

Bachelor Mechanical Engineering

From Nanorobots to Aircraft Engines

A sound technological basis and a wide horizon provide the basis for the work of mechanical engineers at the interfaces where electronics, computer science, mechanics, thermo-dynamics and chemistry meet and where products, systems and processes are developed, calculated and planned.

In the first three semesters, basic theoretical knowledge of mechanical engineering is acquired in compulsory subjects. From the fourth semester onwards, students attend electives in their main areas of interest. In the fifth semester, they select an area of focus or a focus project. A Bachelor’s thesis must be written in the sixth semester.

A five-week workshop placement in an industrial company is another component of the Bachelor’s degree program.
