Focus and disciplines

Almost every aspect of our modern world is in some way a product of mechanical engineering, from power stations and oil refineries to steel plants, flood barriers and hearing aids. Mechanical engineers are behind all of our modern means of transport and they are also responsible for innovations in fields such as biomedicine.

Research and specialization

Our research focuses on developing expertise that spans the entire life cycle of systems and objects, from initiation to design, production, operation, maintenance and demolition, inspired by the ideals of benefit to society and respect for the environment.

Why Mechanical Engineering

From large scale installations to precision medical devices, mechanical engineers put high-tech solutions in a human context. The Master’s programme in Mechanical Engineering will train you to be an expert who understands the entire process, from generating initial ideas to design and analysis, onward to the development of products, processes and systems, and maintenance and end of life recycling. The programme offers unique opportunities to combine various disciplines and will encourage you push the envelope of what is possible.

Career prospects

A Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering is an excellent starting point for a fascinating and fulfilling career. Our graduates find jobs in research & development or design & construction, while some work for government agencies or go on to pursue a PhD.
