Both the professional and intercultural exchange are most valuable for our students and our academic staff. Together, we seek to establish a learning environment that complements our strengths: interdisciplinarity, on-site learning and teaching as well as strong industry links.

The Department of Mechanis and Electronics offers Bachelor and Master programmes in the following fields:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Mechatronics and Robotics

As an exchange student, you can select courses throughout the whole faculty. Furthermore, lectures from other faculties can be chosen upon agreement. The language of teaching is German. However, a varying range of courses is offered in English, amounting to 30 ECTS per semester.
