Mechanical engineering and vehicle construction play a key role in the German economy. This particularly applies to Baden-Württemberg and the Upper Rhine region. The master's degree in mechanical engineering builds on the bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. However, it is also suitable for graduates of other subjects to deepen their knowledge and to develop a profile.
The master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering has a standard period of 3 semesters (90 ECTS). Theoretical content is imparted during the first and second semester. On the one hand, engineering basics are deepened (higher mathematics, technical mechanics, technical thermodynamics) and, on the other hand, specialist knowledge of the main topics of vehicle technology and simulation (FEM, numerical fluid mechanics, simulation of dynamic systems) is imparted. In addition, a study paper must be written, in which the correct scientific work is trained in a parallel seminar.
