Bachelor in

Industrial and Mechanical Engineering

If you choose to study Engineering at unibz, this degree course will provide you with wide knowledge and crucial skills in the fields of industrial and mechanical engineering.

This study programme is subdivided into three majors.

The Major in Mechanics offers a specialisation in the sector of traditional mechanics  whereas the focus of the Major in Energy Engineering is on energy-related disciplines.

These two majors guarantee the development of an excellent set of technical skills and prepare you for the admission to the Master in Mechanical Engineering or in Energy Engineering offered by our faculty.

The third major, a highly specialised vocational course in Logistics and Production, is targeted at those students who want to put straight into practice what they've learnt. For this reason, the subjects are more closely linked to the economic and management aspect of logistics and production.

The Dual Study Programme

This unique dual study programme in Logistics and Production is offered in collaboration with Assoimprenditori Alto Adige, the association of the local entrepreneurs. The duration of the course is extended to four years. In the first year you study full time whereas in the remaining three years you'll be alternating work and study.

If you choose this programme you'll gain real work experience in a company that has agreed to invest in your training and that will allow you to obtain your degree while working.

Die Heimatnähe war für mich nicht das Hauptkriterium für die Wahl dieses Studienganges sondern die optimale Betreuung der Studierenden durch Professoren und Verwaltungspersonal und natürlich die Dreisprachigkeit.
