ET - Mechanical Engineering

In the field of mechanical engineering, the Faculty of Engineering Technology offers both a BSc and an MSc degree programme in Mechanical Engineering. Graduates of these programmes have learned how to devise, design and build new products, ranging from small appliances (such as a robotic arm for the production of car parts) to large installations (such as a power plant). They will have gained thorough knowledge into the areas of mechanics, dynamics, energy and thermodynamics, production techniques, material science, aerodynamics and automation, in order to be able to e.g. optimise existing equipment, improve production processes or continue developing technologies such as 3D-printing. The modules and courses offered to exchange students are all part of the regular programmes, whether in mechanical engineering or other. This means that many of these modules and courses are building on knowledge from modules and courses taught in earlier phases of that same programme. Before you start selecting your modules or courses, please familiarise yourself with the terminology and structure of our educational system.

Note:
Regarding your background (BSc/MSc) & the course level you can choose (BSc/MSc)
bachelor students have to select BSc modules and master students can select both BSc modules or MSc courses. Note that it is not possible to select only some parts of a (BSc) module.
Regarding your background (study field) & 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.

  • Bachelor level

    Below you can find the modules open to Exchange students. These modules are well-balanced, structured sets of courses created around a theme and need to be taken as a whole. You cannot choose separate courses. The modules consist of 15 ECTS per block. Please therefore select one module per block in your application form. 

    For certain modules prerequisites are mentioned, which can be found in the course catalogue. We do however check your pre-knowledge to be able to participate in the module. 
    If the module information is not yet available for the upcoming academic year, please search under the previous academic year.

    If a module is not mentioned below, you cannot choose it, even when visible in the course catalogue. Next to one of the modules of Engineering Technology, you are allowed to choose one module of another faculty.

    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; it is expected that more ESPs will follow soon. Please select a maximum of three courses per block (i.e. maximum 6 courses per semester) in your application form. 

    Please check the course catalogue for more information on the offered courses. If the course information is not available for the upcoming academic year, please search under the previous academic year. The information might be subject to change for the coming academic year.

    For certain courses prerequisites are mentioned, which can be found in the course catalogue. We do however check your pre-knowledge to be able to participate in the course.
