Engineering Sciences (B. Eng.)
Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.)
Yes Dual Offers
In this solid study course, you will learn theoretical principles, handle practical topics with virtual development tools and broaden your knowledge of business management. You might choose to begin your career directly after completing your studies or you may prefer to continue with a master’s degree course. The tasks in the field of engineering are varied. There are many fascinating fields and technologies just waiting to be discovered.
As a student in the first stage of the bachelor’s degree course in Engineering Sciences (semesters 1-2), you will learn the general principles of engineering and begin to orient yourself towards a choice of engineering fields. The course focuses on mechanical engineering methods. In the second part of the programme (semesters 3-7), you will also take classes in the specific disciplines of Vehicle Engineering, Aviation Engineering, Power Engineering and Business Engineering. In the practical semester (semester 5), you will have the opportunity to apply your skills and abilities in a professional context.
You will be able to determine the orientation of your own studies within a set framework in accordance with your personal interests and development, with a variety of options to choose from. Students in the Engineering Sciences degree course can choose between eleven focus areas. The focus areas Development and Design and Digital Engineering concentrate on consolidating the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and virtual product development methods. E-Mobility, Body and Design and Automotive Engineering are focus areas in the field of Vehicle Engineering. Further focus areas are Theory and Principles, Power Engineering, Aviation System Development, Production, Logistics and Procurement, Innovation Management and Automotive Management.
- Application period: Application period for the winter semester is May 2nd to July 15th. Please consider that the online application is only possible in this space of time - applications which reach the university later than July 15th cannot be taken into consideration.
Please find further information on application for bachelor study courses.

Whether vehicle development, machine tool, turbine or plant construction, whether design and development using virtual tools, quality assurance or experiment design in a test facility, whether consultancy, project management, sales or controlling – the combination of a solid basic education with a specialisation in a focus area offers graduates of engineering sciences a wide range of career prospects.
- No tuition fees - 42,00 EUR student’s union contribution per semester only.
- General information on scholarship:
Public funding (BAföG) is only available to Germans and to EU citizens if they have spent a considerable part of their education in Germany. The university awards a scholarship called Deutschlandstipendium once a year which cannot fully cover living expenses. Additionally we have limited funds and support some international students for a maximum of one semester. Please do not actively approach the International Office on scholarships, once a year a call for application automatically reaches all international students.
- Third party scholarship:
- If you are an applicant from abroad, you may qualify for a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD): www.daad.de
- If you are a German students we recommend to research for suitable scholarships on www.mystipendium.de
- Please note that we cannot offer any guidance or support concerning scholarship applications.
- We recommend that single students budget at least 700-900 EUR per month to meet personal expenses (accommodation, health insurance, stay, books, semester contribution)
The first year of study is conceived as an orientation phase. In addition to general principles of engineering, all students gain an insight into specialist disciplines, such as Product Development, Automotive Engineering, Aviation Engineering, Drive Technology, Simulation and aspects of Business Management. Further differences compared to other courses of study are the variety of options available from the second year of study onwards. Students can choose one of eleven focus areas, including Development and Design, Power Engineering, Digital Engineering, E-Mobility, and Innovation Management. Within these focus areas, there are further options that enable students to control how they wish to orient their studies.
Within a focus area there are between 17 and 25 possible modules, of which students are able to select 13 focus area modules. They are largely free to choose how they wish to combine the individual modules. Of course, there are some options that go well together and others that are less well-suited for combination. For example, students completing the focus area in Power Engineering also need to know about Energy Storage Systems, while it only makes sense to combine the Aviation System Development focus area with the Aviation Engineering module.
No. The only difference is that you commit to your field of specialisation one year later. In most focus areas, you are even able to select modules in such a way that they coincide with those from the original study courses.
Application open from May 2nd to July 15!
