General Information

Innovative and Intercultural

Build your networked knowledge in engineering design and development

The Esslingen M.Eng. in Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (DDM) is focused on the design and development of complex engineering systems. In order to work in modern simultaneous engineering, graduates need specialized knowledge and the ability to work in interdisciplinary and international teams.

STUDY IN Esslingen- A ONE-IN-A-KIND ECOSYSTEM OF BIG PLAYERS, HIDDEN CHAMPIONS AND START-UPS

Esslingen University has a long tradition in educating mechanical and automotive engineers. The university has always taken advantage of its location in one of the major centres of European industry, and is therefore closely linked to the nearby companies, such as Daimler, Bosch, Festo, Porsche, Index and many others.
