MSc in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is a very broad discipline. It focuses on conceiving, designing, analyzing, making and improving mechanical products, processes and systems. This is only possible if you have an understanding of the latest technological developments as well as the ability to place your own work in a social context.
The Mechanical Engineering Master's program prepares you for a first professional position in an international environment. Moreover, it provides you with the capacity for further development during your life-long professional career. With a balanced combination of fundamental research and practical application, the department of Mechanical Engineering strives to turn its students into scientifically educated and application-driven engineers.
The Mechanical Engineering two-year Master's program offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge in one of the five Master tracks within the program. After being admitted to the Master’s program, your first step is to choose one of these five master's tracks:
- Dynamical Systems Design
- Thermo Fluids Engineering
- Computational and Experimental Mechanics
- Automotive Engineering Science
- Micro- and Nano Technology
Almost all graduates quickly find the job they’re looking for in business and industry, as a designer, an engineer or a project leader. Some of them start up their own company. For others, the research in the department proofs to be so interesting that they decide to carry out their own doctoral research. But, of course, your career choice is not limited to the track that you opted for during your Master’s program. The program is designed to ensure that you will also be able to specialize in other areas, and to enable you to continue your development on a broad basis.
There are a number of general requirements for admission to this Master’s degree program:
-- A relevant Bachelor's degree (or equivalent), based on a program of sufficient academic level and quality to be able to complete this Master's program.
-- A Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 75% of the scale maximum. Students hoping to participate in selection for the TSP scholarship require a CGPA of 80% minimum.
-- You must be able to demonstrate sufficient command of the English language in which the program is taught.
-- To prove sufficient command of the English language you should submit an Academic IELTS or TOEFL test.
