The study structure in Mechanical Engineering consists of a joint basic package of five subjects taken during the first year of studies. In addition, you must choose two of the following specialised study packages plus an optional package that can be more freely chosen as single-subject courses. The programme thus includes a field of specialisation that is composed individually under supervision and amounts to 60 ECTS credits. In the final term, you conclude your studies with a thesis amounting to 30 ECTS credits.
The degree programme offers specialised study packages in the following fields:
Mechanics of Materials
Plates, Control and Optimization
Dynamics and Fracture Mechanics
Heat Transfer and Computer Fluid Dynamics
Each study package amounts to 15 ECTS credits. By combining these study packages and concluding your studies with a thesis, you can become a specialist in relevant fields of study.

Structure, study start summer:
The teaching is divided into terms with four terms per year. Each term consists of a block of seven weeks followed by an examination period of 2-4 weeks. An example of the teaching calendar is given here.
When applying for the program you specify which subject of study you wish to follow. For each of the three subjects of study a diagram of the first six terms is established. During each term you are supposed to attend to 3 courses. On the 5th term it is possible for you to attend to a preparation course prior to your Master project which starts on the 6th term and ends on the 8th term.
