As mechanical engineers work in almost all branches of industry, numerous areas of employment become accessible to Mechanical Engineering graduates – including, above all, those of planning, construction and production, environment management and energy management.

Learning Contents

Whether we are talking electronic devices, precision mechanical tools, automobiles or production plants – mechanical engineering is pivotal to nearly everything we produce in our modern industrial society. Mechanical engineers produce construction drawings, develop prototypes for machines and equipment, plan, manage and optimise production and by doing so sustain technical progress.
