Aeronautical engineering deals with developing, constructing, equipping, and operating planes, helicopters, or drones. Space engineering focuses on the same aspects, but for satellites and spacecraft.
Architects concern themselves with the planning, designing, and modelling of buildings - from residential houses to industrial complexes. This requires both creativity and technical knowledge.
Bioengineering combines the natural sciences and engineering. In your studies, you will learn about biological processes and their applications as well as numerous engineering tools and methods.
The field of building services and supply engineering involves heating, air conditioning, ventilation, sanitation, and lighting technology as well as automation and information technology in buildings.
The field of chemical engineering and process technology concerns itself with the industrial conversion of materials and energy via physical, chemical, and biological processes.
By planning, designing, and constructing buildings and civil works, such as residential houses, bridges, shipping infrastructure, or wind power stations, civil engineers actively shape our world.
Electrical engineering comprises all processes which produce, transmit, use, or distribute electricity in any way, including the development of devices and processes which are based on electrical energy.
Engineering physics links physics research, technical development, and application. The engineers in this field aim to use the findings and insights gained from physics to solve technical problems.
Graduates of engineering and management programmes work in environments where the need for an extensive technical understanding is coupled with the need for entrepreneurial thinking.
Environmental protection and disposal technology deals with the protection of water, air, and soil through technologies which prevent or minimise the generation of environmentally hazardous substances.
Food technology concerns itself with the engineering, biological, technological, and biochemical processes of the complete value chain of the food production industry.
Materials science and engineering deals with the research and development of innovative materials, from traditional metals, glass, ceramics, and polymers to novel nanotechnologies and biomaterials.
Degree programmes in mechanical engineering deal with the analysis, conceptualisation, simulation, optimisation, and construction of technical systems such as automatic or tooling machines, or robotics.
Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary field which combines mechanics/mechanical engineering, electronics/electrical engineering, and computer science. Systems engineering focuses on control technology.
Our modern society would be unthinkable without a reliable supply of raw materials. In a contemporary mining programme, you will learn, among other things, how to use the earth’s crust sustainably.
Optical technologies deal with the generation, transmission, measurement, and utilisation of light and combine knowledge from physics, mechanical and electrical engineering, and computer science.
Power engineering concerns itself with an environmentally sustainable and affordable energy supply. Renewable energies, nuclear technology, and power plant technology are part of this field of study.
Studying printing technology or media technology trains specialists for print, digital, or audio-visual products. Social media applications and 3D printing are also part of this field of study.
Engineers in the field of safety and disaster prevention, management, and relief work on methods to best prepare society or companies to prevent rare catastrophic events and to deal with their impact.
Nautics concerns itself with the navigation and manoeuvring of ships while ship engineering focuses on the technical systems and units installed on ships, providing opportunities both at sea and on land.
The interdisciplinary field of spatial planning combines aspects from the engineering sciences with aspects from the social sciences. It deals with trends in developed as well as undeveloped spaces.
The field of surveying and geodesy deals with the recording of the earth, using ground, air, and space-based surveying technology as well as the processing and presentation of geographic information.
Human health is the focus of this interdisciplinary field, which combines relevant theoretical knowledge and practical skills from the engineering sciences with those of the health sciences.
Courses of study in vehicle engineering deal with the entire process of vehicle construction. Traffic engineering, on the other hand, focuses on recording, analysing, and influencing traffic events.
