ET - Mechanical Engineering

Regarding your background & the subjects of the courses you can choose
please read this text.
Regarding pre-requisites:
note that admittance to any module or course is always subject to fulfilment of the pre-requisites of that module or course, which can be found in the course catalogue. If the module information is not yet available for the upcoming academic year, please search under the previous academic year.

  • Bachelor level

    The general rule at the UT 
    Bachelor students must select entire BSc modules, including all courses from that module.
    Modules are well-balanced, structured sets of courses created around a theme and provide in 15 ECTS of courses. More information can be found at the main page.

    Rules for Mechanical Engineering
    Mechanical Engineering is the only study program at the UT that allows Bachelor students to take separate courses from ME modules. See the options at the bottom of the page and pay special attention to the extra information.

    Below you can find the modules and courses open to Exchange students. 
    If a module or course is not mentioned below, you cannot choose it, even when visible in the course catalogue.

    Find the list of courses you can follow without taking the entire module below.
    One course can differ from the other in regards of the amount of ECTS. It might therefore be hard choosing separate courses with a total of 15 ECTS per block, instead of choosing pre set-up modules. It might be even harder (if not impossible) to choose courses from both ME study field and other study field, as within other study fields you have to choose entire modules.  

    If you wish to take separate courses from different ME modules there might be colission in time schedule for lectures or exams. We will not provide in any solutions when this happens. That is the risk of taking courses from different modules in one block, therefore we do not advise to do so. If you truly wish to do so, check the list below: 

    List of courses you can take separately
  • Master level

    The MSc programme in Mechanical Engineering has seven specialisations. Below you can find for two specialisations a suggested Exchange Course Package (ESP), composed of a selection of courses. Of course you can also check out other courses in the Course catalogue, but do be aware that within these specialisations the time schedule is aligned. We cannot guarantee so when choosing courses from separate specializations. 
    Do also check out the program from Sustainable Energy Technology, if you're interested.  

    Please also pay attention to the faculty in which the course is given and keep in mind the 60/40% rule
