Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg - Schweinfurt. Our faculty is located on the campus in Schweinfurt, Germany. The Faculties for Electrical Engineering and Industrial Engineering & Management are located at the same campus. Together, we offer degrees in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and mechatronics as well as in industrial engineering & management and logistics. Currently, about 2500 students are enrolled in these programs.

The city of Schweinfurt has a long industrial history of mechanical engineering. Companies like FAG / Schaeffler Group, SKF (both known for bearings) and ZF (car components), but also companies like Fresenius Medical Care and Bosch Rexroth (linear drives) are located here. Schweinfurt is located close to the river Main in Unterfranken, a region that is ideal for biking, hiking, tasting hearty local food or discovering some of the many local beers. The Unesco World Heritage city of Bamberg and our partner city Würzburg can be reached by train within 30 minutes.

If you consider studying at our faculty, please note that all our courses are taught in German. Therefore, your knowledge of the German language should be sufficient to follow courses taught in German, participate in exercises and student projects and also to take exams in German. Please also note that we do not offer summer internships.
