A turbo start in mechanical engineering: specialised knowledge in three years.

At Mittweida University of Applied Sciences, you use modern laboratories and the best equipment to become active yourself instead of just cramming theory. In small groups, you learn exactly the theory that matters in lectures from professors with industrial experience and lecturers with practical experience. You take this knowledge with you to the labs and seminars, where you apply it directly.

Our goal is to give you a head start for your professional life already in the Bachelor's programme. That's why you can choose from four future-oriented specialisations in the mechanical engineering programme at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences, which other universities only offer in the Master's programme, if at all. Of course, you can then deepen your knowledge in the appropriate Master's programme. 

Career prospects

No matter how uncertain the future may seem - the right mechanical engineering degree is more than just a safe bet.

Climate change, energy transition, resource efficiency - the challenges that industry is currently facing and will face in the coming decades are immense. One thing is already certain: Mechanical and plant engineering will change significantly.

Those who are now wondering whether a career in mechanical engineering will still have a future can rest assured. The future looks more than promising for young engineers: There are already around 60,000 unfilled positions in Germany, and the demand continues to grow. If you're thinking about spending a few years or your whole life abroad... whether in America, Asia, Africa or Australia - engineers who studied in Germany are in demand all over the world.

Nevertheless, you shouldn't study "just anything", but the right thing. It is important to acquire precisely those competencies and skills during your studies that will give you an advantage in the rapid development of industry. This is precisely the goal of the mechanical engineering programme at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences, from the Bachelor's to the Master's to a possible doctorate.

Your future. Your studies. Our support for your interest.

You don't know exactly in which field you want to work later? No problem! The bachelor's programme in mechanical engineering at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences is divided into two phases. In the first year, you study the fundamentals of science and engineering, while at the same time gaining an insight into the entire range of mechanical engineering. This is an additional orientation phase to find out what really interests you the most. At the end of the third semester, you then choose your individual specialisation from four offers:

  • Digital product development: Most development work is now done virtually. Digital methods such as Computer Aided Design (CAD) become your speciality.
  • Laser and surface technology: Wear and corrosion protection ensure a long life for your product. You make it possible with laser technology and new types of coatings.
  • Resource-efficient manufacturing technology: Using less material not only means protecting the environment, but can also save immense costs. You make sure that the products can withstand the stresses despite the savings.
  • Micromobility: (E-)scooters and (cargo) bicycles will change our mobility as petrol prices rise. You improve their design or develop new applications that make it possible to do without a car.

Very important: Don't be afraid of maths! The core of mechanical engineering studies is technology. And even if you need help - you'll get it with us. Whether in tutorials from older students or in direct conversation with your professor.
