Mechanical engineering is a diverse field and provides the mechanical structures for devices, equipment and systems, without which our modern lives would now be unthinkable. With the Mechanical Engineering specialisation, you will learn to design, construct and efficiently implement these components.
Mechanical engineers work in the area of product development and construction. You model and simulate mechanical structures and optimise production processes.
This broad foundation in mechanical engineering is something that you can apply anywhere, from solar panels, tools or motors to technology for homes. This basis makes you flexible and opens doors to a wide range of professional options and career opportunities in various industries.
