About this program

Bachelor in International Mechanical Engineering

Big data, additive manufacturing, electric vehicles, lightweight components and advanced materials have created a new frontier for incoming mechanical engineers. Now, successful engineers need knowledge of manufacturing processes, materials science, robotics and automation, electric vehicles and supply chain management. This broad training isn’t available in traditional programs. That’s why our international, multidisciplinary English-taught program is built in collaboration with industry to prepare you for work or advanced study in integrated systems.

Admission requirements

You will be considered for admission to the Bachelor in International Mechanical Engineering program if you fulfill the following entry requirements:

  • You need to hold the equivalent of a Swedish upper secondary/high school diploma (general entry requirement) with minimum entry requirements for mathematics, physics  and chemistry (see program syllabus for more details).
  • Proof of English proficiency
