Our world is facing increasingly complex challenges. Vehicles must become more energy-efficient, production routes more efficient, and the use of materials more environmentally friendly. New types of vehicles and other highly specialized technical products are needed to meet these constantly growing demands.
The task of mechanical engineering is to develop these and thus create precisely tailored solutions for almost all technical fields of application. It is based on natural science and engineering fundamentals such as mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, computer science, electrical engineering and control engineering.
In the seven semesters of the bachelor's program, you will learn the necessary basics and gain insights into the current state of research. In the fifth semester, you will choose a career field such as traffic engineering with a specialization in automotive engineering. Our teaching in the domain of vehicle technology is closely linked to our research projects in order to combine theory with practice for you. After your studies, you will be able to contribute to solving current challenges, not only in the field of mobility, and develop innovative and useful solutions together.
Upon completing your studies, there are many paths open to you in the working world. The following fields of activity are only a selection:
- Research and development departments of companies
- Associations and inspection agencies
- Expert activity
- specialist media
- Government institutions such as ministries
