Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary Mechanical engineering is a very broad discipline. It focuses on conceiving, designing, analyzing, developing and improving mechanical products, processes and systems.
Course description In the Master's degree program Mechanical Engineering you learn to apply concepts and models to complex engineering issues arising in science and industry. Teaching and research are closely integrated within this program. You are kept aware of the latest developments in the discipline. You become familiar with all the latest tools and technologies. As soon as you register for the program you choose one of the five graduation tracks: Computational and Experimental Mechanics, Dynamical Systems Design, Thermo Fluids Engineering, Automotive Engineering Science and Micro and Nanotechnology. The first year is dedicated to core courses and elective courses. Most of the second year is dedicated to an in-depth graduation project, based on the knowledge you have gained during your track. Mechanical Engineering at the TU/e is regularly at the top of the list in mechanical engineering research assessments, while the education program has been the number one in the Netherlands for many years. Almost all graduates quickly find the job they are looking for in business, knowledge institutes or universities. Some of them start up their own company or decide to carry out a doctoral research.
Study subjects The first year starts with a core program, elective courses that deepen or broaden your knowledge, professional skills and a personal space. The second year consists of an internship and the graduation project.
Course objectives The Mechanical Engineering Master's program prepares you for a first professional position in an international environment. Moreover, it provides you with the capacity for further development during your life-long professional career. With a balanced combination of fundamental research and practical application, the department of Mechanical Engineering strives to turn its students into scientifically educated and application-driven engineers.
