  • Special features regarding teaching
    If you want to start with us, we offer you – in addition to a good start into your new life as a first-semester student – intensive support during your degree programme with tutorials, personal supervision of your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis as well as a transition into professional life facilitated by networks, projects, in-house fairs and foreign contacts and cooperations. If the ‘tools’ you bring with you after graduation are not enough, we help from the outset with preparatory courses and gap courses during the semester, together with a wealth of offers of help and support.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    We have contacts with I.U.T. Lille, France, where students regularly share ideas in the fields of CAD, or with NAIST and NARA in Japan, where students work together on joint theses. At NUST/Namibia and Colorado State, our students also work on projects such as solar taxis, etc., and at the Novosibirsk State Technical University in Russia.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Mechanical Engineering has great laboratory facilities to offer: Laboratory for Energy Conversion and Thermal Driving Machines (ETA), Laboratory for Mechanics and Vehicle Engineering, Laboratory for Chassis Engineering, Laboratory for Internal-Combustion Engines, Laboratory for Plastics Engineering, Laboratory for Welding Technology, Laboratory for Robotics Engineering, Laboratory for Machine Tools, CIM Composite Laboratory (CVL), Laboratory for Production Engineering, Laboratory for Measurement and Sensor Technology, Laboratory for Thermal Engineering, Laboratory for Materials and Component Testing
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The department focuses its research activities on four main topics: Sustainable mobility and energy, key technologies, environmental and medical engineering, media technologies. In the school's profile-forming focus ‘Engineering 4.0’, research activities in the fields of drive, energy, sensor and communications technology are interdisciplinary with the key technologies of microsystems and nanotechnology. Young academics play an important role in the field of engineering.
  • Support for founders
    The Master’s includes courses on entrepreneurship. This course provides ideas for start-ups, which are then supervised by respective lecturers. Approx. 3 companies are founded each year from the department of mechanical engineering. In the IMPACT research project, there is an IncubatorConnect, with the aim of promoting business start-ups from RhineMain University and the region via a combined approach of knowledge offers and investor forums. In addition, the university’s Career Service actively supports those interested in starting a business.
  • Other special features
    The RhineMain University of Applied Sciences represents excellent, up-to-date academic instruction with a high level of practical relevance. This topicality concerns not just technical content teaching methods as well. The course promotes analytical skills, enabling students to engage in critical discourse and assume social responsibility. Students, staff and instructors work together to achieve their objectives in a fair manner.
