Your course content

What you will learn

With the fundamental subjects (mathematics, physics, technical mechanics, CAD, electrical engineering, thermodynamics) you will immediately dive deeper into the exciting world of engineering. Building on these basics, you will then analyze technical questions and develop innovative solutions (machine elements, innovation management, product development). You will apply this knowledge in your industrial internship.

During your further study lectures, you will also deepen your knowledge of programming and calculating (finite elements) of more complex tasks. Furthermore you will apply all of your skills to questions relating to vehicle and drive technology (basics of mobility), turbomachinery and power plant technology. 

You will also gain insights into the automation of production lines (control and automation technology, robot technology). 

With this broad basics you are very well prepared for your future professional life as a mechanical engineer. Or would you like to add a Master's degree course? This is also possible with this internationally recognized bachelor's degree program!
