The Mechanical and Process Engineering programme of TU Bergakademie Freiberg leads to advanced knowledge and skills, methodical and technical expertise.


The Mechanical and Process Engineering programme of TU Bergakademie Freiberg combines knowledge from both mechanical and process specifics – machinery and plants with methods of process engineering.

Study concept

Nowadays most of the technical solutions are based on scientific analysis of complex problems and the development of technical innovations.

After completing the program students will be capable to identify relevant information and problems. Finally students will be able to make conclusions with regard to further research and development as well as identify expertise from other related disciplines. Furthermore, students will acquire skills, necessary to be part of interdisciplinary groups.

In the first semester trainings in Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, Fluid Dynamics, Particle Technology, Process Equipment, Endurance and Design are compulsory in order to bring all students to the same academic background.

The second semester provides the theoretical framework. In order to develop self-reliant scientific working techniques students are required to work on projects in small teams. Interacting with university scientists and engineers can earn additional knowledge and experience.

Familiarization with modern design methods and at least one numerical tool is the content of the third semester.

Job opportunities

The graduates will be well prepared to pursue their successful careers in academia or research centers. In addition, they will fulfill the requirements to work in many industrial areas such as automotive, metallurgy, materials manufacturing and processing.
