The aim of this two-year programme is to provide you with a sound knowledge of mechanical engineering, combining traditional engineering courses with management modules.

Course description

The course aims at training professionals who are able to work confidently in areas of engineering that are traditionally separate, such as: mechanical design, mechatronics, automation, management and logistics. You can choose between two specialisations: “Mechanics and Automation” or “Logistics and Production”. The latter is offered in partnership with the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg (OvGU) with the possibility to obtain a double degree.
