Mechanical engineering is exceptionally dicerse. The spectrum reaches from house devices or the car up to airbusses and CAT scanner. In order to develop such products, the mechanical engineering has to combine knowledge from natural sciences, informatics and electrical engineering. Not only the products, but also the production systems itself are developed. The faculty of mechanical engineering is influencing the universitys’ profile immensely.

This becomes clear by taking a look at the new areas of mechanical engineering like mechatronics and industrial automation, but also at the use of the computers in the product and production system development. New analysis and simulation technologies save time and money, innovative interaction forms like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality simplify the usage of computers.
