Are mechanical engineers actually still needed? Clearly: YES!
- Almost all products in daily use are operated or produced highly efficiently by machines, from packaging machines to high-speed elevators, from printing machines to highly efficient machining units, from construction machines to industrial robots. The products are often not visible to the public because they are operated in buildings. However, they usually perform at highest levels there.
- Without mechanical engineering, the Green Deal necessary to save the climate cannot be realized: Mechanical engineering plays a key role in reducing global CO2 emissions, as some 70% of global emissions can be influenced by mechanical engineering.
- Intelligent, digital or networked products require a modern, mechanical engineering platform.
With this course you take part in the design, development and implementation of these products. Our practice-oriented teaching on a scientific basis qualifies you to work independently as a mechanical engineer - employed or self-employed.
HyFlex: Our new way of studying
We developed a new lecture concept to give you the opportunity to design your study programme individually and with higher flexibility. You can now take part in this course of study largely regardless of location, whether from Aachen or Zittau, from Kiel or Rosenheim or from foreign countries.
Parallel to the face-to-face lectures, all lectures will be digitally broadcast live or made available for streaming. Technical requirements: a laptop, an internet connection and a webcam. But don't worry, you can decide at any time whether you want to come to the lecture in the lecture room or watch it from anywhere else. Events that require presence, such as practical work in the laboratories, are carried out on site in just a few blocked phases of presence. The course is accompanied by an intensive support and networking offer.
