Mechanical Engineering (B.Eng.)

Mechanical Engineering (B. Eng.)

Mechanical engineering is the key engineering discipline involved in the development, design and manufacture of investment and consumer goods. It is thus one of the key technologies of our modern industrial society. The broad-based training offered by Esslingen University of Applied Sciences concentrates on the fundamentals and therefore ensures you are well prepared for this task and the challenge of life-long learning. Experienced lecturers teach in small study groups to provide you with everything you need to gain a successful foothold on the career ladder. The study programme is very practice oriented and consolidates the theoretical knowledge by means of exercises in modern labs, project work in groups and the practical semester spent working in industry.

After you have learned the engineering and natural science fundamentals of mechanical engineering in the first three semesters, you select one of two specialisations according to your personal interests: development and design or development and production

After completing the Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering, you may take a continuation Master’s in Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc.) or Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng.).

FOR THE TASKS OF TOMORROW

There is a growing demand for engineers who use their skills in innovation and their creativity to develop new products and thus create new jobs, especially at the present time. The broad-based training offered by Esslingen University of Applied Sciences concentrates on the fundamentals and therefore ensures you are well prepared for this task and the challenge of life-long learning. Having gained your degree, you will be able to work at the interface of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science and management.

You could be engaged on the following tasks:

  • development and optimisation of products and machines using computer-aided tools for design, computation and simulation
  • further development of production methods
  • use of computers in manufacturing  (CAD/CAM, CAQ, simulation)
  • interlinking of machines to form complex manufacturing systems
  • manufacturing, design, computation and testing of machines, products and production systems
  • planning, commissioning and optimisation of production plants and processes
  • project management and application-oriented consultancy work
  • testing, technical sales, quality assurance or as a manager in a company.
