Program structure – Mechanical Engineering (B.Eng.)

The study program in a nutshell


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.
