Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)Mechanical Engineering
Ready to push a key technology forwards? Mechanical engineers develop products, machines and production plants that are used beneficially in all industries and deliver efficient performance. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering, you will be perfectly prepared to develop innovative and sustainable products where mechanics, electrical engineering, digitalisation and management come together and to drive the industry of the future.
In the first three semesters, you will acquire the basic engineering and scientific knowledge of Mechanical Engineering. Later, you choose the focus that corresponds to your abilities and interests: Product development, Production technology, Smart automation, Sustainability technologies.
With the Mechanical Engineering degree programme, you will be choosing a key technology that is in demand in all industries. And the demand continues to rise, because the digitalisation of production requires highly trained skilled workers. Graduates from Esslingen University of Applied Sciences have a very good reputation in the sector. With the broad, fundamentals-based degree programme and the advanced course in your focus area, you will be qualified for planning, development, design, production, automation and quality assurance.
These career opportunities await
Development, design and optimisation of products and machines using computer-aided tools.
Further development production processes
Information technology in production (CAx digitalisation, simulation, big data, AI).
Interlinking of machines to form complex manufacturing systems.
Development, design, calculation, testing of machines, products and manufacturing systems.
Project management and application-related consultancy.
All done! You can check the status of your application at any time via HEonline. You should keep your login details in a safe place. Shortly after the application deadline, you will be able to see whether you have received an admission offer on HEonline and hochschulstart.

Which criteria are used to award the university places?
There are usually more applications than places available. This means that not all applications for degree programmes will be successful. The places available will be awarded in accordance with the result of the university’s own selection procedure.
We are unable to give details of any admission restrictions (numerus clausus, NC) in advance. The NC states the selection threshold and the waiting time in semesters (periods of 6 months) for the last student in the ranking who is admitted to the degree programme. This means the NC varies depending on the number of applicants, their selection thresholds/waiting times and the number of places available. Since this is different for each application phase, we are unfortunately unable to provide any information about the admission restrictions (NC).
Why do I apply to hochschulstart.de and to the university?
For some of the Bachelor degree programmes at Esslingen, the admission procedure for applications for the first regular semester is via the national application portal Hochschulstart and the “dialog-oriented service procedure - DoSV”, where you can apply for a maximum of 12 university places.
To process your application, the “Application/Admission” team needs all the documents required for the admission procedure at Esslingen. You can upload these online via Esslingen’s HEonline campus management system.
Can I apply although I have not yet received my final certificate?
Yes. You can also apply even though you have not yet received your final certificate.
You can upload your university entrance qualification in Esslingen’s HEonline campus management system until the application deadline at the latest.

Recommendations convinced me
I decided to find out about Esslingen University of Applied Sciences when I heard recommendations from friends and family. I was convinced by the good mix of practice and theory. One week you have a theory unit, which is a lecture. Then there is a practical unit in the following week. So you’re in the lab and you apply everything you’ve learned and you can work out the contents yourself.

Expertise for the future job
I decided to study Mechanical Engineering because I have always been very enthusiastic about technology. And here at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, I can not only gain an insight into almost every field of engineering, but also acquire the expertise to be able to contribute to all topics.
