  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Bachelor's degree course in Mechanical Engineering is highly practice-oriented and supports students in their personal development (soft skills). 3 projects help maintain close contact to industry. The students can choose between four specialisations: Energy and Environmental Engineering, Vehicle Engineering, Mechatronics and Production Engineering. Possible additional qualifications: Instructor certificate, operating officer for environmental protection, welding engineer, quality manager. Students also have the opportunity to do a doctorate in cooperation with the TU Chemnitz.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Twin programme
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    State-of-the-art laboratories; EUR 3 million has been invested in the past seven years to improve the technical facilities. Among other things, the following has been procured: Engine test bench, CNC machinery, teach-in machines, tribology test bench, performance test bench for measuring axis, virtual welding, injection moulding, rapid prototyping (FTM). The CAD, CAE, FEM and Manufacturing Engineering Measurement Laboratories were expanded and the following laboratories completely redesigned: Mechatronics, Simulation, Vehicle Engineering and Technical Ceramics.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Large number of research projects and industry-related development projects; Very good connections to regional industry
  • Other special features
    Creation of barrier-free access; Extensions of time for examinations if necessary; Intensive guidance and supervision.
