Description

Developing ideas is, in short, what a mechanical engineer does. The mechanical engineer creates ideas, develops and designs new products. This process is a result of a combination of creative skills and engineering skills. Social and economic conditions as well as work-related and environmental conditions are also part of the process.

The mechanical engineer degree programme is professionally oriented and structured so that, in the course of the programme, you will work with project themes in close cooperation with companies within the fields of industry, automation, energy and environment.

The programme is also offered as an exchange programme.

Career Opportunities  

As a mechanical engineer, you will not only be close to the technological progress – you will also get knowledge and tools that enable you to influence development. For instance, you can be a part of developing new products, and designing energy and production facilities. Beside the strictly mechanical-technological side, this knowledge also enables you to take into account socio-economic and environmental considerations.
