Develop innovative products. Designing resource-efficient plants. Developing intelligent industrial robots. Mechanical engineers are involved in all technical aspects of life - from running water from the tap to the transport system on roads, rails and in the air to satellites. Engineers in this field not only develop new products, but also improve the techniques and processes required for their manufacture - and play a key role in shaping the world we live in today. The broad basic training of relevant engineering knowledge and skills is followed by in-depth courses on concept development and the detailed constructive implementation of innovative products. During the methodical development and optimisation of the products, cost and quality aspects are taken into account in the solution approaches. Here, you will be trained to develop, design and market a product from the initial idea through to series production.
