B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science Mechanical Engineering is a first professional degree and at the same time prepares students for a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering.  The program uses a variety of practical learning methods, such as laboratories, internships, project work, business games and excursions. In addition to technical knowledge, competencies such as the ability to work in a team, independent and scientific work, and critical thinking are also taught.


After the four semesters, students have a basis in engineering science that enables them to make an informed choice for the subsequent specialization. In support of this, an information event on profile selection is offered in the fourth semester. The choice of profile is made by registering for the first profile-specific examination.

Starting in the fifth semester, the following five profiles are available for selection:

The seventh semester is used for a practical training phase and for writing the bachelor's thesis.

Previous experience and internships

To review and supplement math skills, we recommend the Pre-Course in Mathematics. The 3-week course is offered every year in September.

A total of 20 weeks of industrial internship is required - consisting of an eight-week basic internship and a twelve-week specialized internship. We strongly recommend that you complete the basic internship before you begin your studies. This will provide you with basic knowledge in the manufacture of workpieces and the assembly of subassemblies and products, as well as familiarizing you with the variety of different manufacturing processes. Further information can be found on the pages of the Internship Office.
