Requirements and enrollment

Pre-study internshipAgainst the background of the Covid-19 pandemic, the mechanical engineering-related internship, which is regularly required as a prerequisite for enrollment, will be reduced from ten weeks to four weeks.
The internship can also include IT components with a maximum of 50% of the four weeks. In addition, proof of the internship does not have to be provided at the beginning of the course, but regularly until the beginning of the lecture period in the third semester.
Further admission requirements

Linguistic proficiency:

Applicants who did not acquire their study qualification at a German-speaking institution must prove their knowledge of German at level B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference (GER), e.g. B. via the test "German as a foreign language" (TestDAF) with a grade of "3" or an equivalent certificate.

Detailed information on the course

Whether in mechanical and plant engineering, in automotive engineering, in the electrotechnical and chemical industry or in the steel industry: Mechanical engineering specialists are just as much in demand here as in process and environmental technology. The activities of development engineers are correspondingly diverse. Whether you are developing cars, planning a factory or designing a maize chopper - we will make you fit for the design, layout and dimensioning of components and machines, simulation and robotics, materials and production processes.


The aim of our course is to train you to become engineers who can cope with the modern requirements of an industrial working environment and who actively shape development processes. After completing your degree, you will have technical expertise, know modern development methods, be able to present content professionally and have business background knowledge.

Occupational fields

As a mechanical engineer, you will work in one of the top industries in our country and actively shape its development. You can work in these professional fields after graduation:

  • construction
  • Research & Development
  • Production planning and control
  • Production
  • Management, corporate governance
  • Customer service, customer service
  • logistics
  • Quality management, quality assurance
  • Service & Maintenance
  • Initial and continuing education
  • Purchasing, procurement
  • Warehousing, materials management
  • Sales sale
  • Work preparation

In addition, our department offers the following master’s courses:

  • Master's degree in mechanical engineering with specializations in product development, computational engineering, agricultural engineering (possible as full-time and part-time studies)
  • Master's degree in industrial engineering, specializing in mechanical engineering

Content and course of study

In the first two semesters you will acquire the mathematical, scientific and technical basic knowledge for your studies. For example, you will take the following modules:

  • mathematics
  • physics
  • Statics
  • Materials engineering
