- Ruhr-Universität Bochum
For this reason, in the first four semesters of the bachelor’s program in mechanical engineering, we teach you the most important fundamentals in mechanical engineering from the fields of mathematics, science and engineering. This in-depth understanding is particularly important for future work in the development of new solutions and products.
From 5th Semester onwards: Developing an Independent Profile
From the 5th semester onwards, the student will focus on a specialization of his or her choice. In the specializations, you have the chance to develop an independent and unique profile for yourself through numerous choices, without limiting yourself.
- Applied mechanics
- Energy and process engineering
- Construction and automation technology
- Materials and Micro-Engineering
You can read more about the different profiles on the page „Specializations“.
The 7-semester bachelor’s program offers the advantage over 6-semester programs that a wide range of options can be chosen during the bachelor’s and individual interests can be pursued. It also does not extend the overall study time, as the mechanical engineering master’s program is 3 semesters long.
