Why you should study Mechanical Engineering
Studying Mechanical Engineering opens up new opportunities for you to shape your career according to your own wishes. In addition, Germany is an ideal location for mechanical engineers. The automotive industry, plant construction, aviation and aerospace – numerous industries that employ mechanical engineers have their headquarters or at least large production facilities in Germany. So after you graduate, you can take your time choosing which sector you would like to enter. By the way, the salary prospects in mechanical and plant engineering are above average.
Learning new things and broadening your horizons with more knowledge and new perspectives also feels good. At IU, we support you with lifelong learning.
Your IU studies in Mechanical Engineering
During your Mechanical Engineering studies at IU International University of Applied Sciences, you will learn the basics of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. You can expect engineering topics such as technical Mechanics, Materials Science, Construction and Thermodynamics. The curriculum also includes practical knowledge in the areas of IT and Data Science, as well as methodological and interdisciplinary know-how, such as Project Management.
A look into the future: what you'll do after graduation
Thanks to your Mechanical Engineering studies, you will be in demand wherever technical systems or the planning, development and construction of machines are involved. Your skills as a mechanical engineer are more than in demand in various sectors, e.g. in the automotive industry, aeronautical and marine engineering, at energy supply companies or in medical technology. There is still a high demand for skilled workers in technical professions.
The most important questions about studying Mechanical Engineering
Your numerus clausus (NC) is irrelevant for distance learning at IU. There is also no lengthy selection procedure. What counts is you. We would be happy to talk to you personally to find out about your strengths and talents. Tell us what goals you are pursuing with your studies and we will advise you individually.
You can complete your Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at IU in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Hamburg.
Yes, this is also possible at IU. In addition to the entrance qualification in the form of an Abitur or Fachabitur, interested students without an Abitur also have the opportunity to enter our Bachelor's programme. You can study mechanical engineering without an Abitur if you are a state-certified technician or business administrator, have a master craftsman's certificate or have completed at least two years of vocational training and have at least three years of professional experience.
The Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's programme lasts 7 semesters. Your studies start in October.
According to Statista, around 100,000 mechanical engineering students are enrolled in Germany every semester. By comparison, the average number of students in the most popular subject, Business Administration, is around 230,000. So are there (too) many Mechanical Engineering students? No. Various studies predict that Germany may lack engineers in the future when the baby boomers retire in the next 15 years. So you still have good career prospects after your degree.
