Theoretischer Maschinenbau

(Theoretical Mechanical Engineering)

Two-year Master of Science course

The 4-semester, research-oriented Master (MSc) Program in Theoretical Mechanical Engineering builds on research-oriented, mechanical engineering Bachelor (BSc) programs. It presupposes corresponding in-depth knowledge of basic mathematical, natural science and engineering principles, which may if necessary be verified. It is addressed to students with a Bachelor degree who wish to acquire mechanical engineering knowledge that is geared to principles and methods but with an interdisciplinary orientation, along with the related mechanical engineering skills, in order to development complex technical systems, products or processes by means of mathematical description, analysis and synthesis. Simulation Technology and System Dynamics are the fundamentals of this master program.

The course is divided into basic principle-oriented core subjects and a practically oriented special subject. In the core subjects, along with advanced mathematical principles, students acquire first and foremost in-depth knowledge in fields such as applied dynamics, control engineering, numerical methods and structural mechanics. To consolidate the principles, students choose one applied elective blocks. Further technical and non-technical compulsory elective subjects can be chosen from the subjects offered at the TUHH. In the final semester, the Master’s thesis is prepared. Occupational fields are all companies and research institutes with a mechanical engineering orientation.
