Study Mechanical Engineering (B. Eng.)

Information for prospective students of Mechanical Engineering (B.Eng.)

Mechanical engineering is everywhere: in our cars, of course, but also in a production line for chocolate bars, in a wind turbine or an electric toothbrush. Those who design machines help decide what the world of tomorrow will look like. Our Bachelor's degree program in Mechanical Engineering gives you the necessary know-how for this task – and offers you the choice between four exciting specializations, Automotive EngineeringDigitalizationDesign and Calculation or Production and Manufacturing.

Our program director, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Dominico, will be happy to provide you with personal advice or further information. By the way: Here at Frankfurt UAS, you can also study Mechanical Engineering as a German-Spanish double degree program!

This degree program suits you if ...

  • you are looking for a generalized course of study that will subsequently allow you to specialize,
  • you are interested in scientific contexts,
  • you have a solid knowledge of math and physics,
  • you have some technical understanding and like logical thinking,
  • you have good comprehension skills and
  • you have the desire to dedicate yourself to your studies with discipline and ambition.

We currently do not accept applications.

The enrollment was possible until the beginning of the lecture period.

About your Studies

All beginnings are difficult? We make it easy for you to get started – with our start-up project for Mechanical Engineering courses! For two weeks at the beginning of your first semester, you work in small teams on creative questions. All groups compete against each other. It's not about perfect technical knowledge, but about ingenuity, affinity for technology and team spirit.

  • Automotive Engineering: You will deepen your knowledge of everything to do with the "automobile" and learn, among other things, how an engine works, how the various assemblies in a vehicle communicate with each other, and also how to develop a vehicle in such a way that the occupants are protected in the event of an accident.
  • Digitalization: Industry 4.0 is the keyword here - it's about the digitalization of industrial production. Intelligent systems offer the chance to make production steps in companies more flexible, more transparent and to link them more efficiently.
  • Design and Calculation: Do you enjoy developing new things and designing them so that they will last a long time? Then this focus will teach you, among other things, how product development "works", fundamentals for computational design, and also how to use computer applications to design and calculate.
  • Production and Manufacturing: Development completed? The next step is manufacturing. In this focus area, you will deepen your knowledge of the production and manufacturing processes available to you for this purpose.

Students may face many challenges. We know this, and we won't leave you to deal with them alone! Whether it's support with learning math and physics, writing lab reports, finding an internship, or simply advice – we are there for you with our wide range of support services (German only). We are also happy to advise you directly: Just contact our StudyCompass team.

Everyone knows that cars have something to do with Mechanical Engineering. But Mechanical Engineering is much more than that, and without Mechanical Engineering, little would work in today's high-tech world. Whether it is the planning and construction of printing presses, the development of dentists' chairs or the manufacture of coffee machines, machines and systems play an important role in almost all areas. And as the name suggests, mechanical engineers are responsible for their construction. Thus, as a graduate, you can work in very different fields of Mechanical Engineering: i.e. as a developer of electric motors in the automotive sector, as a designer in the consumer goods sector, as a planner of large production plants or as a calculation engineer in the simulation sector. Your career prospects are excellent!

  • In our Master's program General Mechanical Engineering (4 semesters), you can choose between five exciting specializations: Automotive Engineering, Computational Engineering, Product Development, Production and Biomechanics.
  • The automotive industry is in a state of upheaval – help design the change: Our new 3-semester interdisciplinary Master's program Mechatronics and Automotive Engineering will prepare you for an exciting occupational field.

Admission and Enrollment

Students with a German university entrance qualification:

Students with an international university entrance qualification:

  • Application deadline for the winter semester: September 1
  • Application via the platform uni-assist

There are no admission restrictions for this program. Consequently, you do not need to apply, but can enroll directly.

  • Due to the English-language teaching components, English language skills at level B1 are important for studying successfully. Our university provides a wide range of compact and study-accompanying English courses through the Language Center, which enable students to close any individual knowledge gaps on their own.
  • You should also have a good knowledge of maths and physics to ensure that you can keep pace with your studies. In our preliminary courses (German only) before the start of the semester, you can refresh your knowledge.

A preliminary internship of 8 weeks must be completed by the beginning of the 3rd semester. NO such internship is required for enrollment.
All metalworking professions (except metal finishing professions and associated professions) and technical draftsmen/draftswomen (completed training) are recognized as a preliminary internship. Further information can be found in our preliminary internship regulations (German only).

Would you like to change to the Mechanical Engineering program from another Bachelor's program – either at Frankfurt UAS or at another university? In this document (German only) we have compiled helpful information for you.
