Diploma in Engineering
standard length of study
May 16 - October 15 | January 16 - July 15 (International Students)
Starting with winter semester 17/18, the TU Ilmenau offers a major Mechanical Engineering with the degree Diploma in engineering. The challenging course of study begins with a sound mathematical-scientific but also multidisciplinary, basic engineering education. For each lecture a seminar is offered.
After the basic studies of four semesters, a specialisation in one of the four main subjects offered is carried out in the main studies:
A special feature of the Ilmenau study model is the freely selectable minor study course of one semester, which can also be completed at a foreign subject and / or at another university institution in Germany or abroad. Further opportunities for a stay abroad are offered through the integrated one-semester engineering internship or the completion of the diploma thesis in the 10th semester.
The Mechanical Engineering graduates of TU Ilmenau are characterized by a high level of methodological competence in the field of technology and construction. On the basis of the broad theoretical knowledge and the specialist deepening, the learned methodological knowledge can be used independently for complex applications and implemented in value-adding and creative processes.
Constructive mechanical engineering
Measurement and sensor technology
Thermo and fluiddynamics
The preparatory internship is an academic achievement with a duration of four weeks. It is to be fulfilled before the start of studies. The 6-month engineering internship in the 7th semester is to be completed in conjunction with the targeted qualified activities in companies or in non-university research institutions at home and abroad. It is recommended to pass complete study phases abroad (e.g. engineering internship, minor subject, diploma thesis).
Machine and equipment construction
Optics and lighting technology
Micro and nanosystem technology
Measurement, Sensor and drive technology
Research and development
Plastics, glass and ceramics industry
