Mechanical Engineering

Course of studies



Duration of study (semesters)






Description of course of studies

Germany’s economic future as a location for business depends on the international success of our manufacturing industry. Without the considerable production of goods in plant, mechanical and automotive engineering, in aerospace engineering and in energy and medical engineering, innovative new materials and manufacturing techniques could not be developed and many jobs would be endangered. In the industry, working processes include modern computer-aided product development, manufacturing, operations and disposal. In particular, multidisciplinarity is reflected in high-tech products as of high-performance materials, microelectronics and software, and is constantly posing new challenges to our understanding of technology. Mechanical engineers are responsible for this wide range of tasks. Engineers analyze and create ideas and solutions; they develop, test and create products, and ensure that they function properly for the benefit of society. Engineers consult, organize and carry out research in the technical sciences, which requires extensive knowledge. The Faculty for Mechanical Engineering, with its 30 institutes and 800 employees, offers students an attractive educational opportunity with a strong basis in the technical and natural sciences; it also has a broad scope that can be adapted to suit students’ personal interests, opening up solid career opportunities for them. The extremely modern yet very pleasant new faculty building at the Garching research facility provides excellent study conditions in well-appointed lecture halls and seminar rooms. About 3500 computers are available in the labs and training rooms for teaching and research.

Application and admission



Application period for winter semester: 01.04. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.11. – 31.12.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.

You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 31.12. for summer semester.

You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.

Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
