About

Today’s modern devices and products are the results of an ongoing synergy between different basic technical disciplines. Mechanical engineering is the preferred branch of knowledge for realising the incorporation of these and integrating almost all disciplines of contemporary technology. 

Overview

The programme offers you the choice between an application-oriented and a generic methodological approach, with many of the courses enjoying close links to the top-level industrial research of the programme’s lecturers. This ongoing link with the world of industry offers you an advanced, up-to-date content, leading to cutting edge research and development that has resulted in spin-off companies and innovation-driven entrepreneurship.

Strengths:
  • The department has a large experimental research laboratory with advanced equipment, to which you will have access. FabLab (a "Fabrication Laboratory") is also directly accessible.
  • The department has built up an extensive network of companies which have already recruited a large number of our alumni over many years and from whom we receive invaluable, informal feedback on the programme.
  • In addition to their academic teaching and research assignments, several members of the teaching staff also have other responsibilities in advisory boards, in external companies, science & technology committees, etc. and they share that expertise with students.
  • Students are also encouraged to participate in an industrial and research internship abroad.

The field of mechanical engineering is very wide. Mechanical engineers find employment in many industrial sectors thanks to our broad training programme. Demand for this engineering degree in the labour market is strong and consistent.

A study by the Royal Flemish Engineers Association identifies the key sectors in which graduated mechanical engineers are employed:

  • mechanical engineering
  • off-shore and maritime engineering
  • automation industry
  • electrical industry
  • chemical industry
  • environmental engineering
  • the energy sector
  • the financial, banking and insurance sector
  • the communications sector
  • the transportation sector
