The degree program
The bachelor's degree program of mechanical engineering teaches basic mathematical-natural-sciences and engineering subject competences. Another object is teaching social competences or key qualifications such as communication and team skills, presentation and facilitation competences and the abilities to use modern information techniques. Graduates are able to engineering tasks in mechanical engineering companies or in other areas of the economy. Students can also continue their studies in a master's degree program. After successfully completing their bachelor's course, they will receive the academic title of Bachelor of Science, in short: B.Sc.
- A basic internship of at least eight weeks before the course of students commences: Getting to know the materials and their processability; overview of the production devices and procedures. Recognition takes place in the internship office and must be submitted to the examination office no later than by the end of the third semester
- At least seven weeks of subject-related internship during the studies: Supplementation and specialization of knowledge acquired in the studies by working in different operational areas and initial introduction to practical engineering.
- This is also offered as a degree program with integrated practical training (studies + practical phases in a company).
There has been a general lack of engineers for many years. This long-term assessment has still been confirmed in the last years with weak economic development in the industry. The engineering graduates from the University of Siegen had virtually no problems to find a training-adequate workplace in the industry or research area at any time in the last decades. The important business branches in which graduates are employed include mechanical engineering, automotive engineering and the area of metal production and processing. The assessments of both companies and graduates confirm that there is a high demand in engineers with a bachelor's degree. Experience also shows that a great number of the successful bachelor's graduates strive for the subsequent consecutive master's degree as well.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
