The Bachelor’s programme Mechanical Engineering is a challenging programme for hard workers with strong analytical abilities and plenty of resourcefulness. In order to feel at home in the field of mechanical engineering you need to love technology, be versatile and keen to solve the challenges that people and society face today.
Throughout this programme you will become an expert in designing, improving and maintaining all kinds of machines, devices and installations, as well structures and processes. We will equip you for a very broad field of work, teaching you to contribute to many different kinds of innovations and improvements. Some examples include: 3D-printing a ship propeller; making a power plant sustainable; building a window-cleaning robot, or an exoskeleton for rehabilitation processes; developing and applying new materials for lighter, stronger aeroplane wings; contributing to the development of the self-driving car, or the magnetic glider train.
With this Bachelor’s programme you will become an academically educated and highly resourceful mechanical engineer – an independent thinker who understands the technology our society relies on, now and in the future.
When you are a first-year student, you experience many new things. Here we start explaining at least a few of them.
