In Germany, mechanical engineering remains one of the basic disciplines for the country's prosperity. The field of mechanical engineering has changed dramatically in recent years. Today, mechanical engineering primarily means the integration of different systems from the fields of electrical engineering, computer science and/or process engineering and from the classical, mechanical engineering fields into competitive products. In addition, a typical engineering task requires not only technical know-how, but also economic, ecological and social knowledge, which are increasingly taught in our bachelor's and master's degree programs. The deanery of mechanical engineering is the largest at the TUHH and is characterized by its heterogeneity of disciplines.
The research fields in the Schhol of Mechanical Engineering are extremely heterogeneous and include aeronautics, maritime technologies, biomedical systems, energy technology, new and smart materials, product development and production management.
Students in the School of Mechanical Engineering have numerous opportunities to spend time abroad at one of our partner universities. You can find more information on the page of the International Office!
