The shift from fossil to renewable energy sources requires in part completely new, largely unexplored technologies. The transformation of traditional economic sectors such as energy production, the steel and metallurgical industry, the automotive and aviation industries towards a sustainable economy, but also the transition from analogue to digital data and processes requires new thinking, new ideas and a spirited design. For these challenging tasks, we need engineers who are prepared for these tasks through a modern education geared to the new requirements.
The Master's programme in Mechanical Engineering at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg follows on seamlessly from the orientation of the Bachelor's programme in Mechanical Engineering, but also enables career changers to study in a way that makes them fit for the technological world of tomorrow. Regardless of which university you completed your Bachelor's degree at, the fit is ensured by the consistent alignment with the recommendations of the Faculty Association for Mechanical and Process Engineering. The content and form of the degree programme have been aligned with the requirements of digitalised mechanical engineering and allow for independent study with maximum freedom of choice. New or revised focal points allow concentration on selected subject areas geared to the future development of mechanical engineering. The implementation of a one-year study project parallel to the modules ensures the necessary sustainable transfer of knowledge and skills, which ensures a successful transition into an industrial or SME job or even a doctorate. The BTU mentoring system does not leave you on your own, but advises and accompanies you through your studies.
Die Produkte, an denen mein Team und ich arbeiten, finden weltweit Anklang. Maschinenbau ist sehr vielfältig, da ist für jeden Technikbegeisterten was dabei. Im Studium werden Theorie und Praxis gut zusammengebracht.
Die Entscheidung, Maschinenbau zu studieren, habe ich nie bereut. Es ist einfach faszinierend, dass dieser Studiengang so vieles abdeckt: Egal ob Landwirtschaft, Automobilindustrie oder Medizintechnik – überall steckt Maschinenbau drin.
