The institutes of the School of Mechanical Engineering are closely integrated into various research specializations. Because of this and the TUHH’s traditionally strong research focus, our courses are research-oriented as a general rule.
The aim of the Bachelor’s programs is not only to lay the theoretical foundation for a later academic career but first and foremost to equip students with practical knowledge and problem solving skills.
The standard final qualification is a Master’s degree. Master’s degrees build directly on Bachelor’s degrees. They are optimally coordinated and equivalent to graduation with an engineering diploma (Dipl.-Ing.).
Our widely diversified offering, ranging from product development to aircraft systems engineering or shipbuilding, and the knowledge and skills imparted open up for graduates a variety of interesting work opportunities, particularly in research and development in various branches of industry such as mechanical and systems engineering, automotive engineering, naval architecture and aeronautical engineering.
A further interesting opportunity for suitable graduates is to pursue postgraduate studies while working as a research assistant on an institute research project and to take a doctorate in engineering or natural science (Dr.-Ing. or Dr. rer. nat.).
