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 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.
