Welcome to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering!

Mechanical engineering and precision engineering have a long tradition in Ilmenau. In 1955, the Faculty of Precision Mechanics and Optics was founded, from which the current Faculty of Mechanical Engineering emerged in 1990, becoming one of the most important faculties of the Technical University of Ilmenau. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is characterized by its precision mechanics, optics and electronics profile.

Interdisciplinary and cross-faculty cooperation as well as the bundling of competences to form internationally competitive research foci also have an effect on modern teaching in the degree programs Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Optical Systems Engineering/Optronics.
