Research-oriented Mechanical Engineering

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)


In a country that has no raw materials, the creativity and ingenuity of its inhabitants are its wealth. Engineers confront the challenges of the working world and human demands and develop new solutions, creating new products and new values. Due to demographic changes the need for creative minds will continue to increase, in particular in industrialized countries. The bachelor’s degree at the BTU Cottbus aims to accommodate this change. A student can become a professional engineer in only three years!

Besides acquiring the relevant foundational knowledge, students of the bachelor’s studies in mechanical engineering at BTU are involved with research projects in ultra-modern laboratories and therefore also with research questions and the related industrial solutions.
