Course of Study: Mechanical Engineering

We offer a dual study programme in mechanical engineering along with the Privaten Fachhochschule fĂĽr Wirtschaft und Technik Vechta/Diepholz/Oldenburg (FHWT). The FHWT is an officially recognised, privately funded university with accredited dual study courses.

Place of Study


Course of Study

The mechanical engineering course is organised into

  • Fundamental knowledge
  • Core knowledge
  • Further knowledge

Engineering, maths and natural science is taught in the fundamental knowledge phase. The core knowledge phase focuses on providing good knowledge and skills in design work and on mastery of ultra modern calculation and simulation processes. On top of this is independant work in computer labs that are equipped with up-to-date and relevant software. In the further knowledge phase, it is possible to widen the theoretical basic knowledge through a number of diverse optional subjects, in addition to the compulsory subjects. The multidisciplinary curriculum is a further important feature of all phases of the degree. The students therefore learn the highly distinctive interdisciplinary approach to many areas of mechanical engineering. The degree follows 7 semesters of study, finished with three months working on a bachelor thesis.


Engineers plan and design technical systems and machines, products and processes and develop these into an optimal solution. To do this they fall back on not only a wide knowledge of natural sciences and engineering, but they also need to use a considerable degree of intuition, imagination and creativity. In doing this, they must not, however, disregard the economic framework. Mechanical engineers usually work in the following areas:

  • Research and development
  • Design
  • Planning process
  • Manufacturing
  • Quality control


The title Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) is given for the successful completion of this degree.
