In order to take into account environmental and economic aspects early on, the choice of materials and processing methods has to be considered in the initial stages of product development. In this context, you analyze and test materials and examine the related manufacturing methods. The students will learn to consider the full life cycle including the disposal and recycling of a product and to incorporate the data and experience gathered in the use phase upfront in the development planning.
In the framework of this specialization, students have the additional flexibility to focus on Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), Computational Mechanics (FEM), and Fluid Dynamics (CFD) as well as Automation, Manufacturing, Robotics and Mechatronic Systems within their chosen fields of interest.
As a consecutive study program, the Master of Science in Engineering in Mechanical Engineering requires solid knowledge in development, manufacturing and optimization in industry or research. Applicants are also required to hold one of the following bachelor degrees:
- BSc in Mechanical Engineering
- BSc in Microtechnology
- BSc in Automotive Engineering
- BSc in Industrial Design Engineering
- BSc in Materials and Process Engineering
- BSc in Systems Engineering
Applications by interested students with a different academic background will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
As a Mechanical Engineering graduate, you will have a wide range of career options, both in Switzerland and abroad. With an MSE, you will have the qualification to assume senior positions with managerial responsibility in the fields of R&D and production.
