Mechanical Engineering

Study Programme BSc Mechanical Engineering


In the Bachelor's programme Mechanical Engineering you will learn how to convert in-depth fundamental knowledge into practical, socially relevant solutions. After graduating you will be a Bachelor of Science (BSc).

During the first year you will lay a broad foundation in disciplines such as mathematics & modelling, mechanics & materials, design & manufacturing and thermodynamics & life-cycle assessment.

In the second year you go deeper into subjects like dynamics, surface technology, light weight materials, fluid dynamics and systems and control technology.

The third year of the Mechanical Engineering programme consists of electives (minor) and your graduation assignment.

Once you graduate, the choice is yours: you can either get a job or pursue further specialization by getting your Master's.


As of the beginning of the 2017-2018 academic year, the Bachelor's programme Mechanical Engineering will be entirely English-taught.
