Are you fascinated by the wide range of technical design possibilities and their dynamics? Mechanical engineering sees itself as an innovative science of engineering that spreads fundamental and method-oriented knowledge which will last much longer than current trends. Contribute to the development of customised solutions for essential questions of the future, especially in the fields of materials technology, energy and process engineering, production and systems engineering as well as mechatronics.


What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor's programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master’s programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.


From additive manufacturing to self-synchronisation

How can we use materials to save resources and protect the environment? What production technology and mechatronic solutions pave the way for Industry 4.0? Which innovative processes do we need and how can we further develop and use AI processes and big data management in a transdisciplinary way for mechanical engineering? Society is facing a multitude of questions. If you want to find solutions to these questions, the Master’s degree programme in Mechanical Engineering at TU Braunschweig is an excellent choice.
