Mechanical Engineering (B.Sc., M.Sc.)
The fabrication of products, e.g. printing products or the necessary printing presses, is not possible without machines and appropriate technologies and processes. Thus, mechanical engineering with its modern production, information and communication technologies is the most important core area of our economy.

The Bachelor's programme Mechanical Engineering aims to prepare students for professional careers in mechanical and manufacturing engineering with an in-depth knowledge in mechanical plant design, manufacturing technology and engineering materials. The Master's programme, which is currently set up, will include a specialisation in Print and Media Technology.
Graduates with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering can also deepen their knowledge in the field of print and media technology by taking up the Master's studies in Media Production.
