Build your networked knowledge in Engineering Design and Development
In order to work in modern simultaneous engineering, graduates need specialized knowledge and the ability to work in interdisciplinary and international teams.
DDM students gain core competence in problem-solving know-how, based on networked knowledge in design, development, simulation and production technology. Strong focus is placed on the ability to communicate confidently in the international environment of modern industry.
The aim of the Design and Development for Mechanical and Automotive Engineering program of the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is to prepare students for a challenging job in the core areas of design and development within the globalized mechanical engineering and automotive engineering industry. Graduates of the DDM program usually continue to a career in the following areas: the automotive industry and its component suppliers, the mechanical engineering industry, the process engineering industry and engineering consultancy.
Learn to work in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment
The DDM program reflects the needs of globally-oriented companies. We offer the opportunity for students from diverse cultural backgrounds to study, work and live together. This is made possible through active contact with partner universities in many countries throughout the world. The intercultural co-operation on project work is also of added value to master's students.
