In the mechanical engineering bachelor's degree, you acquire well-founded mathematical, engineering and scientific knowledge, which forms the basis for understanding the relationships relevant in mechanical engineering. The mastery of these scientific principles and methods, in conjunction with sound knowledge in the field of information and communication technology, is the prerequisite for successful professional activity in the individual sub-areas of mechanical engineering as well as for further qualification through a relevant master’s degree.

Graduation

The bachelor's degree concludes with the academic degree “Bachelor of Science” (BSc). After the bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree (4 semesters, 120 ECTS) can be started.

The interdisciplinary study of industrial engineering - mechanical engineering provides its students with economic, engineering, mathematical and information science knowledge in order to be able to model, simulate and design systems from a technical, social and economic perspective. In order to meet the variable requirements, the industrial engineer needs in-depth technical and methodological knowledge. On the one hand, industrial engineers trained on a scientific basis are required today to design, optimize and implement operational processes in the sense of an economical production of goods and services.

On the other hand, qualified monitoring of the constantly changing competitive conditions, especially in technology-dominated markets, is required in order to identify new challenges early on and to use them for companies. In the bachelor's degree, graduates acquire well-founded knowledge of mathematics, engineering, natural sciences, social and economic sciences as well as information technology. Graduates of the master’s degree are also able, in accordance with their in-depth training, to initiate developments independently and to plan and coordinate the introduction of technologies.

Graduation

The bachelor's degree concludes with the academic degree "Bachelor of Science" (BSc). After the bachelor's degree, a master’s degree (4 semesters, 120 ECTS) can be started.

Process engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering science, with the fundamentals of technical chemistry and mechanical engineering forming the focus of the course. A broad education is therefore carried out in these two disciplines, which gives the students a solid foundation. Interdisciplinary collaboration is also being promoted. The fundamental basics are taught in the bachelor's degree. In the course of the master’s degree in process engineering, you can choose between the two main areas of “Plant and Apparatus Engineering (AA)” and “Chemical Engineering (CI)” and you can specialize in the following areas

  • Design and simulation of process engineering systems
  • Design and simulation of energy systems
  • Fuel and energy technology
  • Chemical technology and bioprocess engineering
  • Engineering science
  • Material technology
  • Environment and resources

Graduation

The bachelor's degree concludes with the academic degree "Bachelor of Science" (BSc). After the bachelor's degree, a master’s degree (4 semesters, 120 ECTS) can be started.

The mechanical engineering course provides its students with engineering, scientific, mathematical and information science knowledge in order to be able to plan, develop, produce, operate, dispose of and recycle products in an economical and environmentally friendly way. The constantly changing requirements of the modern industrial and information society require well-founded specialist and methodological knowledge, which is imparted in this course. Graduates of the master’s degree in mechanical engineering have theoretical basic knowledge, subject-specific knowledge, combined with problem-solving skills as well as economic and social skills and are able to:

  • initiate and advance developments independently
  • be interdisciplinary and innovative,
  • quickly familiarize yourself with a new subject,
  • lead a team creatively and to present ideas and results verbally and in writing and to represent them competently
  • assess technical developments in their social, economic and ecological effects and advocate human-friendly technology.


In total, the master’s degree in mechanical engineering comprises 8 areas of focus

  • Construction,
  • Production,
  • Energy,
  • Mechatronics,
  • Materials technology,
  • Transport,
  • Automotive engineering and
  • Biomechanics


which in turn are composed of modules. This gives you the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the current state of mechanical engineering in an area, depending on your personal inclinations, and to prepare for a specific occupation.


Graduation

After successful completion of the master’s degree, the students are awarded the academic degree "Diplom-Ingenieur_in" or "Dipl.-Ing. Or DI", which is equivalent to a Master of Science (MSc).

The Master’s program in Material Sciences aims at a broad and fundamental education in the field of the scientific basis of materials as well as their production, investigation, characterization and application. In addition to this specialist knowledge, the graduates should also be able to assess and take into account social and ecological aspects of new materials.

In the master’s program in Material Sciences, the relevant competencies of the faculties of physics, technical chemistry, civil engineering, mathematics and geospatial information, mechanical engineering and business administration as well as electrical engineering and information technology are combined into a cross-faculty degree with comprehensive interdisciplinary training on the fundamentals and application of materials.

Graduation

After successful completion of the master’s degree, the students are awarded the academic degree "Diplom-Ingenieur_in" or "Dipl.-Ing. or DI", which is equivalent to a Master of Science (MSc).

The course has an interdisciplinary and modular structure, which enables a high degree of flexibility. The master's thesis comprises 30 ECTS (i.e. one semester), the remaining ECTS are elective subjects that can be put together independently in compliance with certain rules for an in-depth and specialization course. The master’s degree in industrial engineering - mechanical engineering offers a total of 7 specialization modules:

  • Organization & Strategic Management
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Logistics management
  • industrial engineering
  • Quality management
  • Financial management
  • Risk management


These are supplemented by other selectable courses in mechanical engineering. This gives you the opportunity to deepen the basic knowledge acquired in the bachelor’s degree in a special area according to your personal inclinations and thus to acquire a suitable profile for a specific subject.

Graduation

After successful completion of the master’s degree, the students are awarded the academic degree "Diplom-Ingenieur_in" or "Dipl.-Ing. or DI", which is equivalent to a Master of Science (MSc).

Process engineering (VT) is an engineering science in an interdisciplinary field (it combines aspects of mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, biology and electrical engineering). The VT deals with the extraction and conversion of substances including process technology, planning, construction, testing and operation of plants. A broad, solid basic education in the basic subjects of process engineering (basic operations), mechanical engineering and technical chemistry is intended to qualify graduates of the process engineering course to take into account the rapid scientific and technical development during their career and to quickly move into related, new subjects to incorporate interdisciplinary and subject-specific technologies and problem situations. Interdisciplinary thinking, interdisciplinary cooperation, dealing with the consequences of technology for people and the environment is an integral part of the training, as is the imparting of an understanding of the economic, political and social environment in companies and society and knowledge of suitable ones Cooperation and communication structures, about relevant laws and regulations, as well as the critical examination of them.

In the course of the master’s degree in process engineering, you can choose between the following two areas of focus:

  • Plant and apparatus engineering (AA)
  • Chemical engineering (CI)


Specializations in the following subject areas are possible:

  • Design and simulation of process engineering systems
  • Design and simulation of energy systems
  • Fuel and energy technology
  • Chemical technology and bioprocess engineering
  • Engineering science
  • Material technology
  • Environment and resources
