Students in Mechanical Engineering can choose such specializations as transportation systems, combustion, nanotechnology, robotics and many other.

Program structure

The first years of undergraduate study program in Mechanical Engineering are usually dedicated to basic topics of Mechanical Engineering. Students also undertake core courses in Physics and IT. During the last years of education students can choose the specialization and the curricula will depend on the choice they made, but courses in IT, Mathematics and Physics will stay mandatory for all students.

The undergraduate study program in Mechanical Engineering can last from three to four years, graduates receive a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Science degree. The curricula consists of lectures, seminars and practical lessons, some universities encourage students to pass an internship.

Entry requirements for Mechanical Engineering

Applicants for undergraduate study programs in Mechanical Engineering should have high grades and strong background in Mathematics and Physics.Sometimes universities ask applicants to complete at least one year of education in a relevant area with high GPA scope and then apply for an undergraduate study program in Mechanical Engineering in the chosen foreign university.

English proficiency for applicants for Mechanical Engineering study programs is always required, since all study programs in Mechanical Engineering which can be found on our website are taught in English. Applicants whose native language is other from English need to pass a language test such as TOEFL or IELTS and submit the results with the application form. Those applicants  who have already completed a degree in English usually do not have to pass the language test again.
