  • Special features regarding teaching
    The degree course offers broadly based training in general Mechanical Engineering. The results from the key research fields of simulation, mini combined heat and power plants, machine tools, etc. are integrated into teaching. Acquisition of interdisciplinary skills during project work; Students can prepare their project work and final theses in research projects and industry projects.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Collaboration with partner universities: DongHua University Shanghai, South Bank University London, Saint Petersburg State Institute of Technology, Port Elizabeth Technikon, Stellenbosch University, National Mining University of Ukraine, Valparaiso University (Indiana), Kettering University (Michigan). Possible to complete a practical and/or theory semester or write the final thesis at the partner universities. Lecturer exchange programmes between the partner universities make it possible for students to learn from international professors and for professors in Germany to be exposed to fresh ideas.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Highly modern design and development tools such as CAE, FEM, MKS, Rapid Prototyping, CFD, CAQ and Rapid Product Development are used. In addition, there are excellently equipped laboratories (test bench for mini combined heat and power plants, engine test bench, Welding Laboratory, Materials Testing Laboratory, Plastics Laboratory, Machine Tool Laboratory, Flow Laboratory, Turbomachinery Laboratory, 4 simulation stations, etc.), wind tunnel.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Within the RRI (Reutlingen Research Institute) numerous research projects in the fields of simulation/optimisation with industrial partners, test centre for mini combined heat and power plants with certified test bench, seawater desalination plant, machine tools, etc., are conducted. Many research activities are carried out in the newly founded teaching and research centre "Reutlingen Energy Centre (REZ)".
  • Support for founders
    The Center for Entrepreneurship offers university-wide advice such as on writing applications, jobs, different mandatory elective modules (2-5 ECTS), workshops, events, excursions and competitions, which students of the Technology also take part in. In the 2018 summer semester the first one-week start-up summer school for technology students was held, which was part of an excursion to Ukraine. In addition, awareness-raising workshops are held in the individual degree courses to raise interest in the topic among students.
  • Other special features
    Practical relevance is strengthened by close partnerships with industry. Small and medium-sized enterprises support competent students by means of grants, offer work placements and collaborate through projects. A combination degree course, the "Reutlingen Model" is also offered. This combines specialist training as an industrial mechanic with a degree course in mechanical engineering.
