The Mechanical Engineering programme of Fontys University of Applied Sciences trains students to become an overall engineer. You will learn the theory and practice you need to design, create and maintain machines, production processes and machines. Your classes are given by teachers with a lot of real life working experience. You practice your technical skills and perform challenging (business) project assignments. As a mechanical engineer an important part of your work is making technical designs. We support you in that learning process and a study counsellor will guide you during your study.

Mechanical Engineering

From oil rigs to the plastics industry, from pythons in amusement parks to devices and machines, everywhere you will meet Mechanical engineers.

He is an all-rounder with a technical background. A designer, who also knows how processes work. Mechanical engineers focus on designing, making and placing on the market of equipment, installations and machinery. They make things 'better'. Do you want to make for example a machine more energy efficient? Or ensure that a production process produces less waste? With Mechanical Engineering you are going to make it!

The Bachelor program Mechanical Engineering leads to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree.
