Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering
Machines and systems are full of fascinating technology and the business world always gains new input and ideas from those. Studying Mechanical Engineering at THGA is also full of exciting tasks and projects, ranging from the selection of the most suitable materials, the appropriate design of machine components to the planning and construction of entire plants.
In additional to their technical knowledge, mechanical engineers need transferable skills, too: the success of their work does not only depend on the technical quality of their work but also on how the results are communicated and presented.
The Bachelor programme Mechanical Engineering provides a profound fundamental education to be able to manage those tasks and adds a strong focus on practical work and usage. There are four majors to choose from, i.e. Development and Construction, Production and Quality Management, Power Engineering and Sustainability and Energy Efficiency, which means that students can pursue their own interests and focus on specific fields and applications.
Mechanical Engineers graduating from THGA have excellent career prospects in fields such as: quality assurance in steel manufacturing, FEM analyses of heavy-duty components, design and construction of turbo-engines, assessing damage cases and feasibility studies of products and processes.
THGA is a state-accredited university and does not charge tuition fees. The only contribution due is a small fee for the use of university facilities and public transport in NRW.
