The study programme builds on a solid foundation in mechanics, which is the fundamental discipline of mechanical engineering. This allows both deeper examination and broader study in the various areas of mechanical engineering. With the different subjects offered in elective modules, you get to grow and develop according to your own specific interests. The solid foundation of mechanical engineering expertise combined with your choice of elective subjects allows you to shape your individual, interdisciplinary profile. The additional strong research focus completes the innovative syllabus.

All courses are taught in English. This prepares you for a future career at international or global level without any language barriers. It is also an important requirement for international double degree programmes, which are currently under development.
