Gain knowledge about product development, construction, automation, and project management

Do you want to design and construct the industrial products of the future? Then the Mechanical Engineering programme may be something for you.

As a mechanical engineer, you will help develop innovative, industrial products that can help ensure a sustainable future. You will learn, in creative and systematic ways, to design and control machines for, for example, robot-based production systems.

In mechanical engineering, you will learn to plan and carry out projects, while at the same time gain an understanding of the design of industrial products.

What will I learn?

As a graduate engineer in Mechanical Engineering, you will gain competencies that will enable you to solve concrete problems in innovative ways, act as a project manager for interdisciplinary projects, solve complex mechanical engineering development tasks, design products, plants, and systems and much more.

You will learn how to develop user-friendly and smart design, choose the optimal production methods, calculate strength conditions, economy, durability, etc., draw in 3D CAD, make models, and test prototypes in the workshop.

During the programme, you will work with topics such as mathematics, statistics, physics, machine elements, materials and technology, radiation and convection, thermodynamic systems and state variables, measurement methods, data collection and processing, project management, business understanding and much, much more.

How is the programme structured?

During the programme, you will work a lot in project groups, where you and your fellow students will solve problems for companies through case-based work.
Each semester is based on a main theme, which becomes the basis for the semester's theory and project work. In the first part of the programme, you work with product development and in the last part of the programme, the focus is on the work concerning the engineering disciplines, which includes the environment, economics, and business management.
In the 6th semester, you must complete a six-month engineering internship in a Danish or foreign company. In the 7th semester, you will carry out a graduation project - often in collaboration with a company.

What can I become?

The programme provides you with several career opportunities - both in Denmark and abroad. You will be able to work as a project manager, development engineer, product developer or with the design of machines and plants. You can, for example, work with the development and construction of everything from large plants to products and production equipment in various industries such as the pharmaceutical industry, the wind turbine industry, offshore, power plants, food production, refrigeration industry.

Can I continue my studies?

A BEng is an independent, completed programme. So, after the 3½ years, you are a graduate engineer and ready to start your engineering career.
If you want to immerse yourself further, you can continue your studies and, for example, study a MSc in Structural Engineering.

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
