Applied Mechanics

Bachelor of Science

Angewandte Mechanik, B.Sc.


Mechanics builds bridges between physics, mathematics, and engineering. It is a field that plays an important role in current developments in the different varieties of scientific and technical areas. To name a few examples: crash behavior of motorised vehicles, flying airplanes, space travel, skiing, behavior of modern implants in the human body, air flow (auto body, weather), structural behaviour (houses, bridges, buildings,…), different manufacturing processes, undesirable noise generation, nanotechnology, etc.

The programme structure of the Bachelor of Science in Applied Mechanics is interdisciplinary and combines science, mathematics, and engineering.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. It is therefore recommended that students complete a Master's programme.

The Applied Mechanics programme is suitable for everyone who is interested in and enthusiastic about science and engineering, as mechanics, mathematics, and engineering are the focus of the studies. In this context, it is thus important for the students especially in the first semesters to be able to rely on a solid base of knowledge of mathematics and physics acquired in school.
Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.

Furthermore, a basic understanding of complex logical and technical problems, the ability to think analytically, and spatial perception are beneficial.

Use these tools for a smart start into the programme:

Orientierungswoche (OWO) (orientation event) at the beginning of the first semester.

General Information: With the Bachelor of Science, the students will acquire a first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science is considered the standard qualification at Technical University of Darmstadt. For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

Computational Engineering (M.Sc.)

Energy Science and Engineering (M.Sc.)

Mechanics (M.Sc.)

The fundamental but predominantly theoretical course of study prepares B.Sc. Applied Mechanics graduates for working in industrial development departments and research institutions and as scientists at universities or in research institutions. Broad and in-depth skills in many areas of mechanics combined with in-depth mathematical knowledge allow graduates to grasp new issues quickly and further develop already existing skills.

Depending on their respective major and level of specialisation based on their center of interest, graduates may work in particular fields of construction, mechanical engineering (especially automotive industry, tire industry), materials science, the aerospace industry, environmental engineering, biomechanics (joints, fluidity,…), etc.
