Engineering Science B. Sc.

The demand for interdisciplinary engineers with a broad methodological-scientific basic education in the classic fields of engineering sciences is growing steadily. The bachelor's degree program in engineering provides a broad basic knowledge in the engineering sciences as well as in-depth knowledge of mathematics and the natural sciences.

This is intended in particular to motivate those interested in learning an engineering profession at the interfaces of the technical and scientific disciplines. The wide-ranging education provided within the framework of the Engineering Science B. Sc. program provides access to many master's degree programs both within and outside of TUM.

The program is aimed at students who are looking for a broad methodological-scientific basic education without having to commit to one of the conventional engineering subjects at the beginning of their studies. This is intended to address all those who aspire to a career in engineering at the interfaces of the classic disciplines such as mechatronics, process engineering, medical technology, materials science, materials engineering and software engineering.

What you'll learn for your future?

Engineering Science B. Sc. is designed as an intensive degree program and is accompanied by a mentoring program from the very beginning. As a graduate, you will have a broad, method-oriented education in general engineering, natural sciences, mathematics and computer science. In addition, depending on your choice of specialization, you will have developed your own general engineering profile.

Based on your individual focus on an area of concentration within the program, you will also have the opportunity to successfully complete a corresponding master's degree program at TUM. 

Study Information

The central goal that drives the degree program is to convey the broad methodological foundations of the discipline, as required to work in engineering, without bringing a specific applied field to the fore. In addition, students receive a sound vocational education and training in mathematics and the natural sciences that is clearly more advanced than that offered by conventional degree programs in engineering. Here, equal emphasis is placed on theoretical and methodological orientation, as well as on the integration of content that is relevant to practical application in industry. During the course of their studies, students are given the opportunity to specialize in engineering sciences or in new interdisciplinary fields. 

The degree program is designed to be completed within six semesters.

  • The first four semesters convey thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of engineering science and the natural sciences, as well as mathematics and informatics. These are complemented by interdisciplinary qualifications.
  • In the fifth and sixth semesters, students have the opportunity to begin to specialize in content, including that related to a possible master’s program.
  • The degree program concludes with the bachelor’s thesis in the sixth semester.
