Master of Science

A very broad discipline, mechanical engineering is about conceiving, designing, analyzing, making and improving mechanical products, processes and systems. From large scale all the way down to nanometer level. This is only possible if you have a good understanding of the latest technological developments and the ability to place your own work in a social context.  

If this appeals to you, then the Master of Mechanical Engineering is the right program for you. 

Master of Mechanical Engineering 

When you start the Master of Mechanical Engineering program, you must immediately choose one of the department's different areas of research.

  • Computational and Experimental Mechanics 
  • Dynamical Systems Design 
  • Thermo Fluids Engineering 

While the specialization you choose will be the main focus of your master’s degree, the program is designed to ensure that you can also delve into other areas, and to enable you to continue your development on a broad basis. 

Under the Master of Mechanical Engeering you can also follow a dedicated track on Manufacturing Systems Engineering. This is a joint master's program of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences which focuses on the interface of machine technology and industrial processes.
