The Mechanical Engineering M.Sc. from the University of Duisburg-Essen is divided into five study profiles, each offering a different focus.
The General Mechanical Engineering profile provides a wide-ranging education in general mechanical engineering without concentrating on any particular area. The curriculum offers students the breadth of a traditional mechanical engineering education, with the technical part of the course comprising a set of compulsory core subjects as well as three catalogues.
The Mechatronics profile combines classical mechanical engineering with electrical engineering and information technology. The interplay of mechanical, electrical and electronic system components, together with their functional and local integration into general modules, gives rise to completely new functions and manufacturing processes.
This option offers students a thorough grounding in the methods that lay the foundation for the development and manufacture of mechatronic systems. Students will also have the opportunity to broaden and deepen their knowledge of special areas through a wide range of advanced lectures.
A diverse study programme
The diversity and depth of the research interests of the various teaching posts enables students to devote their Master's thesis to the latest application areas, such as robotics, automotive technology and biomechanics, while taking advantage of the most advanced knowledge available in these areas.
The increasingly globalized nature of the marketplace means that graduates of this option have a wide range of international careers to choose from. These include managerial positions not just in major corporations but also in the SME sector, where the opportunities for growth and career advancement are substantial.
