Material- and production-oriented mechanical engineering
Mechanical Engineering is an engineering study programme where students learn skills in the field of research and development, component design and optimization, and automation of machines and plants. Knowledge is also acquired in the fields of metallic materials, plastic materials and machinery design. The graduates are engineers with a holistic view, who are familiar with modern information and communication technologies and who are able to apply their methodological knowledge in real on-the-job situations.
Well equipped labs and workshops facilitate the practical testing of developed methods ans fundamentals. This includes among others computer-aided test facilities for the testing of life span, image processing and robots, CAD-systems.
Typical fields of activity
Research and development, production, logistics, marketing, construction and calculation.
Typical industrial branches
Industrial plant construction, vehicle and aeronautic industry, metallurgical industry and companies, plastic processing, exploitation and processing such as petroleum industry, consulting engineers, scientific fields at universities and research institutions under consideration of fatigue strength and light-weight construction aspects by the use of leading edge development tools such as stress simulation and computer-aided life span prediction.
Possible degrees: BSc, Dipl.-Ing. (MSc), Dr.mont. (PhD)
