Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering Website
I am delighted to welcome you to our website. Here you will find information about our facilities and our teaching and research, which cover the entire range of engineering methods and processes in Mechanical Engineering.
The information is aimed at students and industrial partners, prospective students and graduates, experts and representatives of our many partners at home and abroad. If you still have questions, do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your interest in our Department.
Yours, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stephan Rinderknecht
Dean of the Department of Mechanical Engineering

Current job offers at TU Darmstadt.
We have a history stretching back over 100 years, but are also flexible and well-equipped to deal with the challenges of our time. Our goal is unity between excellent teaching and research, while remaining small enough to retain personal contact. This is the perfect breeding ground for Humboldt's educational ideal of a community of learners and researchers reaching beyond individual subjects.
Our Department offers accredited bachelor and masters programmes. We consider individual choice and the personal mentoring of our students extremely important. Our research-orientated educational philosophy “General Mechanical Engineering” emphasises the well-founded education in foundations and methods, while also leaving plenty of room for project work and cross-disciplinary functions. We regularly achieve excellent results in independent rankings.
Our subject areas perform very successful research across the whole spectrum of Mechanical Engineering, from ergonomics to fluid mechanics, from flight dynamics to power plant technology. Our expertise is recognised nationally and internationally, and we are one of the successful locations in the national excellence initiative and in the state of Hessen. In addition, we have many years of outstanding relationships with industry, as well as several large Collaborative Research Centres and Research Training Groups. With over 600 doctoral and postdoctoral candidates, we have plenty of excellent people.
