This programme covers the entire product development cycle, from idea to the final product. The first semester consists of mandatory courses in mechanical engineering, such as fluid power systems, computational mechanics, and deformation and fracture of engineering materials. They are combined with courses in product development and project management. In the second semester, you may choose among five specialisations. After graduation, you will have great opportunities for employment in almost any sector of the engineering industry. You may take part in multidisciplinary design processes, or be involved with the generation, distribution, and use of energy; the design and development of machines, vehicles and transportation systems; or the processing of materials. You will also be prepared for a research career.
