Requirements

The demands placed on mechanical engineers are constantly changing. This is why you have to stay on top of current developments in your profession and be able to understand and apply the latest technologies. The basis for this is a solid and practice-oriented engineering training, as taught in the mechanical engineering program at Offenburg.

The increasing digitalization of technology also requires comprehensive interface knowledge in electrical engineering and information technology, although you do not have to be an expert in all of these areas.

The mechanical engineering degree program is also interdisciplinary oriented, allowing you to start your career in a cross-industry field, i.e. without being fixed to a predefined discipline.

The strength of mechanical engineers lies in their creativity and interdisciplinary knowledge, as well as their ability to adapt to new situations quickly and confidently. As such you will be well prepared for future developments.
