Bachelor Mechanical Engineering at HAN University of Applied Sciences

The engineering profession has many faces. You could be designing roller coasters for amusement parks. Creating installations for a complicated manufacturing process. Or re-designing powertrains to run on biofuel. It’s all possible with a mechanical engineering degree. Learn how to use technology to increase machine performance parameters. In anything from huge cranes to the smallest micromechanical applications in healthcare. Develop your designing skills to let energy systems run on the smallest amount of energy possible. Or to run on renewable energy. Apart from the energy side of things? You’ll dive into steering and control, cost-efficient design and human-machine interfaces. In short, you’re choosing a broad, multidisciplinary field. 
Applying theory in practice is crucial for 2 reasons. First, it helps you understand complex ideas. Second, it gives you valuable practical experience. That’s why already in the 1st year you start working on design projects in small groups. Take the principles of construction. First you learn the theory, then you put it into practice. How? By creating a windmill, a wind-driven vehicle or a healthcare application. Later in the program you work on more complex, real-life projects in engineering companies. Projects with an international dimension. That could be a heat pump and thermal energy system design. An industrial transport application. Or a machine redesign.
