The programme starts with a term of traditional mechanical engineering, mathematics and computer programming courses, all of which are mandatory. These courses prepare students for further studies in one of the programme’s specialisation areas:

  • Engineering systems design – includes all aspects from classical machine design to mechatronics
  • Engineering mechanics – comprises classical and modern applied mechanics with a strong focus on modelling and simulation.
  • Manufacturing engineering and management – spans the area between automated manufacturing processes and supply-chain management.

The final semester of the programme is devoted to a degree project.

Career Opportunities

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, and graduates have good opportunities for employment in almost all sectors of the engineering industry. They can be involved with the generation, distribution and use of energy; the design and development of machines, vehicles and transportation systems; and the processing of materials. They work frequently with developing new solutions to environmental problems. Mechanical engineers are expected to be creative, have broad knowledge and work as a member of a multidisciplinary team.
