Information about the study programme

In the foundation year (1st + 2nd semester), students learn mathematical and scientific fundamentals, basic knowledge of design, mechanics, computer science and materials science, basic knowledge of application-orientated engineering software and English.

In the following profile year (3rd + 4th semester), students choose a specialisation (mechatronics or product development), which is selected in the 2nd semester. Parallel to this, there are modules in engineering electives and practice-orientated projects (block weeks). In addition, the focus is on acquiring interdisciplinary qualifications (social, economic and interdisciplinary skills).

The practical semester in a company (5th semester) is followed by the focus year (6th + 7th semesters), in which, in accordance with the specialisation, a foundation in technical-theoretical terms, a strengthening of application-related project work and the acquisition of further key qualifications are planned. The programme concludes with a practice-oriented Bachelor's thesis in the 7th semester and a colloquium, after which graduates are awarded the title ‘Bachelor of Engineering’ (B.Eng.).
