  • 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
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Universität von Ljublijana/Slovenien; Tennesee Tech University/USA
