General entry requirements

Job perspectives for mechanical engineers are outstanding. Machine building is the most important industry in Germany, and mechanical engineers trained in Germany have a broad range of employment possibilities.

Mechanical engineers are empoyed at lot of business branches. These are not only the typical machinery manufacturers, but also plastics industriy, all types of material processing,  automotive industry and energy.

The study program consists of six theoretical semesters and one practical semester. The first two semesters cover basic subjects like mathematics, physics, computer science, business administration and mechanical design. In the following two semesters, modules like automation, machine building and production management build up a profound knowledge of the key topics of mechanical engineering. In the fifth and sixth semester students can choose one of the following areas of specialization:

  • Production
  • Water and Environment
  • Energy and Building Service Engineering
  • Efficient Product Design


In the seventh semester students do a 900 working hour internship and write their bachelor’s Thesis.This is already on the path to a job in industry.  During this internship the students are obliged to work "like a young engineer"  - this means to assist at engineering tasks in a company.
