About

The MSc programme in Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is aimed at students who want to participate in the development of new and better solutions based on the laws of mechanics.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

Engineers with competencies in construction and mechanical engineering are involved in the development of new and better solutions for products, mechanical components, production equipment, and industrial installations. The focus of the solutions may range from microstructures—such as parts for hearing aids or mobile phones—to engines, turbines, wind turbines, ships, and offshore structures.

Study programme focus

The MSc programme in Mechanical Engineering and the related disciplines at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) cover systematic engineering design methods within engineering design and product development as well as analysis, numerical simulation, and optimization with focus on the strength of structures, fluid flows, and energy conversion. 

The study programme allows you to apply systematic engineering design methods and advanced mathematical models. Applied mechanics is used in many contexts requiring extensive knowledge of physical principles, strength of structures, fluid flows, and energy conversion. 

The teaching includes lectures, individual work, and class exercises in group meeting rooms, databars, and laboratories. The final MSc thesis is related to the programme disciplines and is written in collaboration with an active research group or carried out as a project in collaboration with one of our business partners.

Focus areas

The Mechanical Engineering programme covers five delimited focus areas or disciplines, allowing you to design your own study plan with main focus on one of these disciplines.

  • Engineering Design and Product Development
  • Strength and Dynamics of Structures
  • Industrial Fluid Mechanics
