Mechanical Engineering - Product Development and Technical Planning
Standard Duration: 6 semesters
Degree: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
This Bachelor's Degree provides graduates with an excellent foundation to obtain further qualifications through postgraduate studies. At the Environmental Campus graduates can apply to one of the following Master's Degree Programmes:
- Sustainable Process Engineering Degree: Master of Science (M. Sc.)
- Environmental Enegergy Technologies Degree: Master of Science (M. Sc.)
The Bachelor's programme is based on a modular concept. Core modules are taught in the first three semesters, whereas subject-specific modules are taught thereafter. These modules focus on development and construction, as well as operations and technology management. Students also take elective modules, which can be comprised of different lectures, in order to gain a more profound understanding of a specific topic or to enrol in a non-related subject, such as a language or communication studies.
Exchange semesters are encouraged. Students who decide to study at a university abroad, generally do so during the fifth semester. The prerequisite for this is an equivalent curriculum at the partner university.
The sixth semester is reserved for a practical project and the Bachelor's thesis. The period of practical lasts twelve weeks. The aim of the final dissertation is to demonstrate that the student is capable of working independently through a subject-related topic by applying scientific methods within a nine-week time frame.
