School pupils

Young high school graduates are today in particular demand in the business sector. For this reason, those who have recently obtained their Abitur or Fachhochschulreife (higher education entrance qualifications) represent one of the largest groups of first-year students.

If you are nearing the end of your school career and not only have excellent knowledge of science subjects, but also want to participate in technical developments in mechanical engineering, then take a look at what we have to offer and get to know us better!


Women in mechanical engineering

As many technical professions, mechanical engineering is still regarded as being typically male-dominated. This is despite the fact that, today, many women are on their way to becoming the engineers of tomorrow. And their number is increasing daily! So if you not only feel at home in the sciences, but are also fascinated by technology, then take a look at what we have to offer!

Even if the majority of work in mechanical engineering does not take place in the workshop, but rather on computers in an office, people with practical knowledge are essential for mechanical engineering. That is why young people who have not only completed theoretical studies, but also a practical apprenticeship in a technical field, are in particular demand on the labour market. If you have recently completed this kind of apprenticeship and want to consolidate what you have learned with degree studies, the following pages will provide you with plenty of information.


Studying abroad

The world is becoming smaller all the time. At the same time, the need to be able to work abroad is growing. TU Darmstadt therefore places particular emphasis on internationality. This not only means that around 70% of our students spend a part of their studies abroad, but also that the number of international students in Mechanical Engineering in Darmstadt totals around 20%. Are you currently studying Mechanical Engineering at another university outside Germany and interested in spending time at our university? More information here!
