About the course

How can we construct machines using less material? And how can we get these machines to run on renewable energy? And what about human-machine interaction? The future holds great challenges for mechanical engineers. Join us in this challenge and study mechanical engineering at HAN University of Applied Sciences.

The programme has a strong focus on intercultural collaboration and project management skills. In addition, students will gain a solid understanding of international regulations for machine design. HAN University of Applied Sciences boasts strong industry connections, which enable students to get access to valuable networking and work experience opportunities.

Why study with HAN University of Applied Sciences?

  • Truly hands-on approach.
    You apply theory to practice in loads of exciting mechanical engineering projects.
  • Lecturers with real-world experience.
    Our lecturers have worked as researchers and for commercial enterprises. This means you get the most up-to-date information and techniques in mechanical engineering.
  • Graduates with mechanical engineering jobs at top international companies.
    - Constructional design (Besi, DAF, Scania, Hyster, IHC, Marel, ASML, NXP)
    - Energy systems design (Bosch, Nefit, Atag, Hyet, Nuon)
    - Health-care applications (Philips)
    - Production facilities and automation (Heinz-Kraft, Mars, Festo).
  • Smooth transition into Masters in Mechanical Engineering.
    As a mechanical engineering undergraduate it’s good to know what comes next. Moving on to HAN’s Masters in Systems Engineering is easy. Specialise in Control Systems, Automotive Engineering, Sustainable Energy, Embedded Systems or Lean.

Project-base learning

As a mechanical engineering student, you collaborate with other disciplines. After all, part of the mechanical engineering curriculum is problem-solving and communication skills.

You start on small projects with students from Electrical and Electronic Engineering. As you progress through the course, you work on ever bigger projects. And with ever more disciplines.

You work for a semester on a mechanical engineering internship (the work placement). In the final year you do an elective course and a graduation assignment for a company.

How to apply

Our minimum entry requirements for UK-educated students are 3 A Levels. Candidates with BTECs in relevant subjects will also be considered.
