Mechanical engineering deals with issues relating to the development, production and operation of machines, systems and vehicles. In particular, the programme focuses on design and calculation as well as the underlying mechanics, electrical drive technology and automation. In addition, there are industry-specific programmes such as electromobility, machines for raw materials processing and extraction as well as cross-industry programmes such as simulation and additive manufacturing. Thanks to its broad applicability, mechanical engineering enables students to deal with current and future challenges from all areas of the economy.
The Bachelor's degree gives students a first professional qualification. However, it is recommended that students continue their studies on the consecutive, three-semester Master's degree program. This leads to the acquisition of in-depth and extended analytical, methodological and technical skills in mechanical engineering. It is a research-oriented programme that enables graduates to methodically classify and systematically combine knowledge from different areas and to deal with complexity. They will also be able to systematically reflect on the non-technical effects of engineering activities and incorporate them responsibly into their actions. The Master's degree is comparable to the Diploma. In addition to modules on basic research and engineering specialisation, students continue their education in their chosen specialisation subject. A second specialisation must also be taken. A project is completed as part of the programme. The final Master's thesis is completed in the third semester.
Please note that the Bachelor's degree programme in Mechanical Engineering is not an independent degree program, but one of six possible sub-degree programmes of the innovative Bachelor's degree program in Engineering. For you, this means the greatest possible flexibility in choosing your engineering specialisation, excellent study options and the opportunity to join suitable Master's degree programs directly at TUBAF.
