  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching is extremely important in the faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Most courses are offered by full-time lecturers. They are complemented by instructors from industry who ensure that current issues are incorporated. An important component of teaching is the laboratory exercises that are conducted in very well-equipped laboratories. All courses are evaluated by the students. The results are discussed in the committees and, if necessary, improvements identified. Some of the courses are held in industry.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The faculty endeavours to motivate the highest possible number of students to do a study or practical semester abroad. Informational events are offered together with the International Academic Office. A project takes place in the fourth semester in which a group of students collaborates on a project with students from a partner university. This is a one-week stay at each partner university during the project. The faculty offers 2 double degree programmes.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Jyväskylän Ammattikorkeakoulu (JAMK), Finnland; Kettering University, USA; Northumbria University, UK; Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, USA; University of Glasgow, UK; Jönköping University, Schweden; Vilniaus Gedimino Technikos Universitetas (VGTU), NUS Singapur; NTUST National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taiwan; ITESM Tec de Monterrey, Mexiko; UTN Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, Argentinen
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The technical equipment of the faculty is reflected mainly in the laboratories. They have excellent equipment and are continually expanded and upgraded. Some of the machines available were donated to the faculty by companies. Many applications for large-scale devices have also helped to further improve the technical infrastructure. The students have access to laboratories with modern equipment that can be used in laboratory sessions and project work.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Many of the research projects at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences are not limited to the Mechanical Engineering department, but are interdisciplinary, e.g. carried out in cooperation with the Social Work, Health and Nursing department at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences or with the Biology department at the University of Tübingen. These projects strengthen the interdisciplinary work and encourage to take a broader view. The mechanical engineering faculty's current key research areas are Industry 4.0, the smart factory, plastics technology and resource efficiency.
