Mechanical Engineering is a well-established degree programme with many modern trends like simulation, lightweight construction, bionics to name only a few. The development of simultaneously ever lighter but stronger components in motor vehicles, aircraft or satellites, as well as in the manufacturing or plant construction industries, requires the use of sophisticated, innovative methods of calculation, simulation and analysis. The benefits achieved for society and the economy form the sustainable basis of our highly-engineered world.

Career opportunities

Numerical simulations such as experimental testing and trials are increasingly being used in wide areas of mechanical and plant engineering, aerospace and the steel and plastics processing industries. This applies both to the strength and dynamic analysis of machines and machine components, as well as to the analysis and simulation of production and manufacturing processes.

Graduates are given the ability to independently and efficiently solve development, calculation, research or optimization tasks in different industries. The courses for the necessary technical specialist and basic knowledge are rounded off by economic subjects and courses to promote social skills.

The master’s course is intended to complement and deepen the basic bachelor’s course. The concept of the course is also designed in such a way that it can generally be completed by graduates of Bachelor courses with a technical (mechanical engineering) orientation.
