Bachelor’s degree course at the Faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

A bachelor’s course in Mechanical Engineering (MB) imparts a sound knowledge of mathematics as well as engineering and science, forming the basis for understanding the relationships relevant to mechanical engineering. Mastering these scientific basic principles and methods is, along with a sound knowledge in the field of information and communication technology, a prerequisite for a successful career in any of the subdivisions of mechanical engineering as well as for gaining further qualifications through an appropriate master's course.

Completion

Those who complete their bachelor’s degree earn the academic title of Bachelor of Science (BSc). After completing the bachelor’s degree, it is possible to start a master’s course (4 semesters, 120 ECTS credits).

The interdisciplinary degree course Business Engineering specialising in Mechanical Engineering (WI+MB) imparts socioscientific, engineering, mathematical and IT knowledge, so that students are able to model and simulate systems from technical, social and socioscientific perspectives. To be able to meet variable requirements, industrial engineers must have sound, specialist knowledge and methodological skills. Industrial engineers trained on an academic basis are now required on the one hand, to design, optimise and implement operational processes in terms of the economic production of goods and services. 

On the other, monitoring by a qualified individual of the constantly changing competitive environment, particularly the technology-dominated markets, is needed to identify new challenges early and use them for a company's benefit. In the bachelor’s degree course, graduates acquire sound mathematical, engineering, scientific, socioscientific, economic and IT knowledge. In accordance with their more in-depth training, graduates of the master’s course are also able to independently initiate developments and plan and coordinate the introduction of technologies.

Process Engineering (VT) is an interdisciplinary engineering science with emphasis on the fundamentals of technical chemistry and mechanical engineering. As a result, a broad range of study is completed in both these disciplines so that students gain a solid foundation in both fields. It also encourages cross-disciplinary partnerships. The fundamentals are taught in the bachelor’s degree course. During the master’s course in Process Engineering, it is possible to choose between the two key areas “Plant and System Engineering (AA)” and “Chemical Engineering (CI)” and specialisation is possible in the following subject areas:

  • Design and Simulation of Process Engineering Systems
  • Design and Simulation of Energy Systems
  • Fuel and Energy Technology
  • Chemical Technology and Biochemical Engineering
  • Engineering Science
  • Material Technology
  • Environment and Resources
