Mechanical engineering is the central engineering discipline when it comes to the development, design and manufacture of capital and consumer goods. This makes it one of the key technologies in our modern industrial society. With the wide-ranging, basic-oriented training at the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, you are well equipped for this task and the challenge of lifelong learning. Experienced lecturers teach you everything you need for a successful career start in manageable learning groups . The high practical relevance The course consolidates theoretical knowledge through exercises in modern laboratories, project work in the group and the practical semester that is completed in industry.

After you have learned the engineering and natural science basics of mechanical engineering in the first three semesters, you can decide on one of the two main fields of study according to your personal inclinations: development and construction or development and production.

After completing the Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering, a postgraduate Master’s degree in the Resource Efficiency in Mechanical Engineering (M.Sc.) or Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng.) Courses is possible.


Nowadays in particular, there is a growing need for mechanical engineers who are able to develop new products through innovation and creativity and thus create new jobs. With the wide-ranging, basic-oriented training at the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, you are ideally equipped for this task and the challenge of lifelong learning. After graduating, you will work at the interface between mechanics, electrical engineering, IT and management.

You can be employed as a graduate of the Mechanical Engineering course in the following positions:

  • In the development and optimization of products and machines using computer-aided tools for construction, calculation and simulation.
  • In the further development of production processes.
  • Using computers in production (CAD / CAM, CAQ, simulation).
  • When linking machines to form complex manufacturing systems.
  • In the development, construction, calculation and testing of machines, products and manufacturing systems.
  • When planning, commissioning and optimizing production systems and processes.
  • In project management and application technology advice.
  • In testing, in technical sales, in quality assurance or as a manager of a company.
