Master in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering deals with many tasks. From the invention of the steam engine to the development of mechatronic systems: mechanical engineering has always been able to give fresh impetus to the economy. That is why studying mechanical engineering will help graduates to pursue a career in many fields of industry, trade and public service.

Mechanical engineers can be found in all professions where technical and interdisciplinary issues are at stake, at all stages of value creation. The Master’s programme Mechanical Engineering is a stand-alone programme that deepens the knowledge obtained in previous university degree programmes, either in mechanical engineering or related fields.

The Master students will learn to critically assess scientific insights and to independently apply methods of science and engineering to solve issues. Moreover, they will learn and reinforce the necessary cross-disciplinary skills of methodology and technology which are essential for any field of mechanical engineering – be that material development, calculating and constructing machinery or planning entire systems.

The content learned during their Master’s programme will enable graduates to integrate knowledge and master the complex issues, bearing the needs of society and their own specialist field in mind.

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.
