The degree program
The bachelor's program in Mechanical Engineering teaches basic skills in mathematics, natural sciences and engineering. Another goal is to teach social skills and key qualifications such as communication and teamwork, presentation and moderation skills and the ability to use modern information technology. Graduates are able to carry out engineering work 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 program, they will receive the academic title of Bachelor of Science, abbreviated B.Sc.
- A basic internship of at least 8 weeks before the start of the degree program: Getting to know the materials and their workability; overview of the manufacturing equipment and procedures. The internship must be recognized by the internship office and submitted to the examination office no later than by the end of the 3rd semester and
- at least 7 weeks of subject-related internship during the degree program: Complementing and enhancing the knowledge acquired in the degree program through work in different operational areas and initial introduction to engineering practice.
- Also offered as a dual study program with practical integration (degree program + practical work in the company).
There has been a general shortage of engineers for many years. This long-term assessment has been confirmed even in recent years with weak economic activity in the industrial sector. The engineering graduates of the University of Siegen had virtually no problems in recent decades finding employment adequate for their training, whether in industry or in research. The important economic sectors in which graduates are employed include mechanical engineering, automotive engineering and the metal production and metalworking sector. The assessments of both the companies and the graduates confirm that there is a high demand for engineers with a bachelor's degree. Experience also shows that a large number of successful bachelor's graduates aim for the subsequent consecutive master's degree as well.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
