Ingenieurwissenschaften und Mechanik

Bachelor of Science; tuition language: German

The following English language content is for information purposes only. The legally binding content can be found on the corresponding German website.


The programme Ingenieurwissenschaften und Mechanik 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.

To ensure the success of the students in the programme, there are two instruments:
a) Orientierende Eingangsphase (orienting introductory phase), and
b) three Orientierungsmodule (orientation modules) in the first year of study according to § 3a (7) der Allgemeinen Prüfungsbestimmungen (General Examination Regulations) of TU Darmstadt.

The fundamental but predominantly theoretical course of study prepares B.Sc. Ingenieurwissenschaften und Mechanik 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.
