BSc Mechanical Engineering

Linking people, materials, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

There is a demand for mechanical engineers with a broad and varied educational background as well as a strong practical orientation. Wherever complex systems are developed and produced, our graduates are at the forefront of innovation.

The bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering enables you to begin a career in the fields of construction/development or computation/simulation or become involved in the production or commissioning of innovative products. Mechanical engineers make significant contributions during each phase of the entire product life cycle and serve industry as skilled experts.

After a few years in employment, graduates' career paths usually guide them toward managerial roles in business units. Others establish their own company and turn a pioneering idea into a reality.
