The Mechanical Engineering programme from Aarhus University provides students with the opportunity to apply theory to practical issues, with scope for interdisciplinary collaboration. 


You will gain a sound understanding of advanced calculation methodologies, such as the finite element method (FEM) and multidisciplinary simulation tools. You will study topics such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), structural dynamics and modal analysis, and fracture mechanics and fatigue. The basis for these competencies includes continuum mechanics, elasticity theory and plasticity theory. 

The first and the second semester include a number of compulsory courses and elective course packages within the specialisations of Structural Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, Dynamics, Fracture and Composits and Termo Machinery.

The third semester includes elective courses and the possibility to do a project, which can be completed in collaboration with a company and/or a research group.

As a student on the degree programme, you will be offered half-yearly student development interviews. This is an opportunity to discuss topics such as requests and plans regarding choice of courses, as well as choosing subjects from other departments at Aarhus University


Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering programme from Aarhus University find work in a wide range of fields, from basic engineering or science research in joint projects involving research institutes and the industrial sector, to research and development projects in the industry. Many graduates of MSc Mechanical Engineering have gone on to working within research and development departments at industrial enterprises, whilst others choose to do a PhD in Denmark or abroad.
