Developing high tech products needs a skilled engineer to be designed safely, efficiently and sustainably

Development of products, from simple devices to high tech products such as robots and wind turbines, requires skilled engineers so that the products are safe, efficient and sustainable. The complex requirements for modern products cannot be met without ingenuity, collaboration and a solid theoretical professional foundation.

On the course, through the problem-based projects, you gain a great deal of knowledge about product development, technical analysis and mechanical design. In addition, there is also a focus on welfare technology, sustainability and production. This combination prepares you to work with the development and analysis of advanced technical products in a research and development department. The education combines theoretical courses and practical project work. Through the training, you will be part of project groups that work with solutions for real development projects together with companies.

The bachelor's program lasts three years, during which you learn the fundamental skills of a mechanical engineer, such as statics and dynamics, but you also learn about mechanisms, advanced materials and mathematical models such as used in advanced simulation programs.

Project work and company problem solver

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups.

You and your fellow students:

  • Are responsible for planning and carrying out the project 
  • Must work together and meet the deadlines 
  • Solve problems for companies 
  • Have access to dedicated space for project work.

In the sixth semester you will write your bachelor project – often in cooperation with a company or on a research project.

Focus on Structural Design, Fluid Mechanics or Robot Mechanics

The bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering is a three-year programme and each semester is based on a theme.

The education consists of a combination of theoretical courses and practical project works. From the get-go you will be part of a project group to work on a mechanical project based on industrial problems.

The education is in Danish in Odense with a special focus on Structural Design, Fluid Mechanics or Robot Mechanics and the program structure is described below.

The education is in English in Sønderborg with a special focus on Mechatronic systems, Intelligent mechanical systems or Hydraulic systems and the program structure is described here.

Versatile career paths

After the first three years you study for two years at master level to get the full MSc in Engineering degree.

With a degree in mechanics you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could set up your own company or be employed as a development engineer, project manager or researcher.

Graduates who have completed this bachelor programme are entitled to use the title of Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering (Mechanics).

That is why you should study...

  • You are helping design the industrial products of the future
  • You will have good career opportunities
  • You will learn to develop innovative solutions to specific problems
