Programm Code

UE 033 282 – Bachelor's Programme Mechanical Engineering - Management

Duration of Programme

6 semesters


180 ECTS




Bachelor of Science (BSc)


Programme contents

The degree programme imparts interdisciplinary engineering, mathematical, social and economic knowledge in order to be able to model, simulate and design systems from different perspectives. In order to meet the variable requirements, the industrial engineer needs a scientifically sound and application-oriented technical and methodological knowledge. On the one hand, the design, optimisation and implementation of operational processes in the sense of an economic production of goods and services is required. On the other hand, qualified monitoring of the constantly changing competitive conditions is also required in order to recognise new challenges early on and to use them for companies.

Examination Subjects and Modules of the Bachelor's Programme

Structure of the Bachelor's Programme Mechanical Engineering - Management. You can find more detailed information in the text below the picture

The Bachelor's Programme in Mechanical Engineering - Management teaches the relevant programme content in several modules.

In the first to fourth semesters you will complete the compulsory base modules. The other modules are expected to be completed in the fifth and sixth semesters. Of course, you are free to organise your studies yourself and not to adhere to the semester recommendation. 

You must choose two modules from the advanced modules and two from the vocational field orientation modules. In addition, you must complete courses from the elective subjects and the transferable skills. Finally, you must write a scientific paper, the Bachelor's thesis. You complete this degree programme with the academic degree Bachelor of Science.

There are enough study places and therefore no admission procedure. The VoR-Phase of the Bachelor's Programme consists of online tests on mathematical and mechanical engineering topics.

An interest in technical-scientific processes, economic contexts and mechanical engineering are ideal prerequisites for the degree programmes. The engineering sciences have always been a source of innovation for solving the major challenges facing society. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Management Sciences takes this into account with its focus areas:

  • Energy, Mobility, Transport and Environment
  • Materials, Production and Management
  • Human-Centered Design, Health and Medicine
  • Digital Engineering Innovation

in research and research-led teaching.

The equipment of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Management Sciences with study places and laboratory equipment is modern and forward-looking. The Bachelor´s Programme is not overcrowded; there are sufficient free places for all lectures, exercises, laboratories and seminars. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Management Sciences is particularly keen to interest women in studying mechanical engineering and to support them during their studies.

The job description represents a modern interdisciplinary interface qualification between engineering and economic-scientific fields. This meets the urgent demand of the economy for graduate engineers who are trained in economics and prepared for management tasks. The prospects for good and interesting jobs are excellent and many of our graduates are in top positions in business. The broad basic education remains relevant for many years and enables students to familiarise themselves with new problems and develop solutions. 

The completion of the bachelor's degree in industrial engineering - mechanical engineering (E 033 282) entitles the student to continue studying directly in the master's degree in industrial engineering - mechanical engineering (E 066 482).

As part of the European exchange programmes (ERASMUS, SOCRATES), it is possible to spend one or two semesters studying in another EU country. Study abroad is formally recognised and the process is straightforward with few bureaucratic hurdles. There are also specific bilateral agreements with universities in other countries (such as the USA). Further information can be obtained from the Dean's office, the Dean of Mechanical Engineering or the Chair of the Studies Commissions.
