B. Sc. Mechanical Engineering – Mechanical and Process Engineering

Master's degree program:

M. Sc. Mechanical Engineering (General Mechanical Engineering) and

M. Sc. Computational Engineering with specialization in Mechanical Engineering

Career goal and career expectations:

After graduation, I would like to do my PhD in the field of numerical simulation of flows and combustion processes. Here, my main interests are in the simulation of reactive flows in the context of alternative fuels and increasing the efficiency of existing combustion processes by gaining insight into fundamental combustion processes.

Main focus and special interests during my studies:

During my master's studies, I would like to focus especially on the topics of energy engineering, thermodynamics, and reactive flows. Already during my bachelor studies I followed these topics with special interest and also dealt with the simulation of a reactive flow in my bachelor thesis. In the context of my personal interests and the socially growing importance of environmental and climate protection, I will also attend some lectures on this complex of topics.

Furthermore, the master's program in computational engineering offers me the opportunity to combine this field of interest with other topics, such as machine learning and software development.

What do I particularly like about studying at the TU Darmstadt?

What I particularly like about my mechanical engineering degree program is the wide range of subjects and areas of specialization, especially in the master's program.

I can choose my subjects according to my personal interests and am not limited to predefined module combinations. Building on the bachelor's program in mechanical engineering, in which extensive basics were taught, I can thus select the subjects that I particularly liked and not pursue subjects that are not in my personal area of interest. Furthermore, there are many opportunities at our department, for example within the framework of so-called “Advanced Design Projects”, to put knowledge learned in lectures into practice, which gives me particular pleasure.

I also like the fact that I can easily study the master's program in computational engineering alongside the master's program in mechanical engineering. This way, in addition to my focus on mechanical engineering, I can also gain insights into other disciplines, especially computer science, and learn additional skills that can be of great benefit to me in my future professional life.

What does the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship enable me to do?

The Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship gives me financial freedom. Thus, I can fully concentrate on my studies and am not dependent on a part-time job. Furthermore, the scholarship gives me the opportunity to get to know other scholarship holders.

What excites me about technology?

What excites me about technology is the possibility of solving problems in different ways and with an ever-increasing range of possibilities. For example, modern technology makes computer simulations possible that were unthinkable a few years ago. Also in the field of experimental investigations, new and better sensors are being developed all the time, with which real processes can be investigated in more detail and thus ever new insights into these processes can be obtained. As a result, numerical models can be better validated, which in turn means that the corresponding processes can be optimized with these models. This interaction of the many natural and engineering sciences fascinates me in particular.

According to my interest in mathematical physics, I will deepen my knowledge in the fields of probability theory and partial differential equations in my Master's program. Through my choice of courses, I would like to gain a better understanding of quantum mechanics in addition to classical physics. In doing so, it is important for me to understand how the fundamentals of the theory relate to the properties of the system being modeled so that I can improve my skills in both structured and intuitive approaches.

What do I particularly like about studying at the TU Darmstadt?

In the mathematics department of the TU Darmstadt, I particularly like the uncomplicated exchange with professors and doctoral students. On the one hand, this increases the motivation to want to study the subject in more detail, and on the other hand, it helps enormously to develop a better understanding of the course content. In addition, the scripts offered are easily accessible and of a high standard. This allows me to work through topics on my own.

What does the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship allow me to do?

I am pleased to be a scholarship recipient of the Thomas Weiland Foundation. The scholarship allows me to study with full focus on the course content and without stress. In addition to the freedom of not having to work at the same time, I can afford to live a better and more sustainable lifestyle and thus enjoy my master's studies.

What excites me about technology?

Turning pure theory into an application and tangibility of complicated ideas for applied science and engineering is what excites me about engineering. While I study mathematics because I enjoy understanding abstract concepts, it is the ability to apply this skill that gives my studies a long-term and deeper meaning.

Biomolecular Engineering

Career goal and career ideas

After completing my master's degree, I would like to pursue a PhD in the field of synthetic biology. I am very interested in different application areas of biologically engineered tools and therefore aim for a position in research within this field after my PhD. By doing so, I want to make a valuable contribution to our society, either directly or indirectly. Here, I am particularly interested in the field of red biotechnology, i.e. the development of therapeutic and diagnostic methods.

Main focus and special interests during my studies

What fascinates me about biotechnology, especially synthetic biology, is the engineering approach to “engineering” organisms. By building different modules and components, biological systems can be precisely and directly controlled. The goal is to create platforms that are as modular as possible and can be combined quickly and efficiently without interference, comparable to making electrical circuits from individual components in electrical engineering. These can find a wide variety of applications in medicine, process development or basic research.

What do I particularly like about studying at the TU Darmstadt?

What I like most about the TU Darmstadt is the family atmosphere at the Biocampus and the Lichtwiese. The many excellent working groups in the departments provide a great overview of a wide variety of research areas, in which you can gain both theoretical and practical insights. In addition, with the founding of the Centre for Synthetic Biology, many young, innovative groups are currently coming to the university, who pass on their enthusiasm for their field of research to us students in various modules.

What does the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship enable me to do?

The scholarship enables me to study without worries, during which I can still take additional modules or internships. For example, I was already able to participate in our university's iGEM project both as a participant and as a project coordinator, which is a very large time commitment in addition to my studies. In addition, I can get involved in sports as a referee in clubs, for example.

What excites me about technology?

What excites me most about technology is the interplay of logic and creativity in development. It excites me to understand the technology behind technical aids of all kinds. It makes me particularly happy that I can apply “classic” technology at the biotechnological level in my studies.

Master's degree program

M.Sc. Medical Technology

Career goal and career ideas

I would like to contribute to expanding the methods of medicine and to reduce the effort, the costs and especially the risks for the patient through technical solutions. The relatively young field of medical technology has already achieved a lot in this regard (imaging such as CT and MRI, pacemakers, etc.) and I would like to become a part of it.

Focus and special interests in the study program

The M.Sc. Medical Engineering is characterized by very high freedom of choice. Below is a list of the topics I chose to focus on.

Surgical Robotics: Minimally invasive surgeries have many advantages, such as smaller wounds, less blood loss and thus shorter healing periods. Robotic assistance is the next step to make surgeries easier for the doctor.

Artificial intelligence: AI detection of diseases based on collected data can significantly speed up diagnosis in the future and ensure that critical diseases are detected early enough.

Integrated micro/nano systems: Tiny systems have many advantages over normal systems. I am not aware of any connection with medical technology so far, but who knows, maybe that will change in the near future.

What do I particularly like about studying at the TU Darmstadt?

The TU Darmstadt is characterized by a very high standard of education. This means hard exams and a lot of effort, but compared to other universities, you end up with a much more comprehensive teaching. In addition, there are many opportunities at the TU to spend time meaningfully outside of one's own studies, for example through the university sports or the language center.

What does the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship enable me to do?

The financial support allows me to fully concentrate on my studies and, moreover, the time I gain allows me to take additional modules that I only want to learn out of interest without being able to count them towards my main studies. In addition, I can afford material such as microcontrollers and electrical components in order to use the knowledge I have learned to tinker with my own systems.

What excites me about technology?

What excites me about technology is the autonomy that a system has. A computer that performs a calculation without outside intervention, a crane that moves a load weighing tons at the push of a button, or an MRI that creates a detailed image from inside a body without touching it. Technology enables us to do things that without it we would only be able to do with great effort or not at all.

Mechatronics M.Sc.

Career goal and career ideas

My goal is to make future mechatronic systems even more sustainable and smarter. To achieve this, I would like to work as a system developer on innovative projects in an interdisciplinary way. During my master's studies, I would like to find out whether a subsequent doctorate or a career entry is right for me.

Main focus and special interests during my studies

I deliberately chose to study general mechatronics, so I don't have to commit to a single specialization. I am particularly interested in looking at the mechatronic system as a whole. For this reason, I attach great importance to being as broadly based as possible in my field of study and to incorporate topics from the areas of mechanical processes, predominantly electrical actuators and sensors, as well as closed-loop control technology, control and navigation. I am focusing on specific topics in robotics and automotive engineering, which I feel connected to because of my time in motorsports.

What do I particularly like about studying at the TU Darmstadt?

The TU Darmstadt offers its students a very broad range of courses. Particularly in the master's program, there are many opportunities to organize your studies individually and to look beyond your own department. For example, it is always possible to learn a new language or to complete modules in the fields of business or law. Furthermore, great importance is attached to regularly integrating practical components in the form of team projects into the studies. This offers the opportunity to prepare for future work in a research and development team and to gain experience in project management. Last but not least, one benefits from the excellent reputation, the wide networking and the international relations of the TU Darmstadt.

What does the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship enable me to do?

First and foremost, the Thomas Weiland Foundation scholarship enables me to shape my future more independently thanks to the financial support and to create time for personal further education. It also makes it easier for me to spend time abroad.

What excites me about technology?

Technology surrounds us everywhere and at all times. It makes it possible to constantly raise the global standard of living. For me, as a budding engineer or developer, the excitement lies in being able to actively shape technology and thus have a powerful tool at my disposal with which to influence the development of people and the environment.
