Master-study program Section Applied Mechanics

The section Applied Mechanics offers a broad spectrum of possibilities to be graduated in one of the three profiles Research and Development (R&D), Design and Construction (D&C) and Management & Organisation (M&O – only in combination with Dynamics based maintenance):


Mechanics of forming processes (a.o. numerical and experimental research on manufacturing processes like deep drawing, extrusion and rolling),


Dynamic behaviour of structures (theoretical and experimental research in the field of structural vibration and acoustics).


Dynamics based maintenance (theoretical and experimental research of dynamics based lifetime assessment, damage failure mechanism identification)

The study program for R&D, D&C and M&O can be found under the AM-tab of the excel sheet on respectively:

Research & Development

Design & Construction

Management & Organisation

An overview of all ME courses from which elective courses can be obtained can be found on:

Subjects Mechanical Engineering

The section Applied Mechanics participates in two specialization:


Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces & Systems


Maintenance Engineering & Operations
