Program Overview

Program Description:
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and oldest branches of engineering. Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems - that is, any system that has a moving part! Mechanical systems can vary greatly in complexity and magnitude from oil rigs to the plastics industry.It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible.

1st Year of study During the first year of study you learn what Mechanical Engineering is about. You are involved in projects which are supported by typical Mechanical Engineering related subjects like: - Construction and mechanics - Mathematics - Physics - Measurement - Control and modeling - Communication and presentation techniques In laboratories you practice technical skills such as dealing with machines and milling, welding and turning. Also practicing with drawing programs, working with 3D equipment, modeling and simulation are parts of your studies. 2nd Year of study (core phase) As from the second year you expand your knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering. This is called the core phase of the program.

Fontys within top 5 in Dutch university rankings The “Keuzegids”(Dutch Study selection guide) is an independent guide and ranking that aims at critically assessing and comparing the quality of Dutch universities. In general, Keuzegids is considered the most prestigious ranking in the Netherlands. With a score of 62.5 Fontys ranks among the best four large universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. Additionally, all study programs itself were assessed. Here, Fontys managed to score above-average in the study fields of Engineering, ICT, Logistics, Business Administration and Management.
Setting Description:
The Eindhoven region, also known as the Brainport region of the Netherlands, is the most important technology and industrial center of the Netherlands. With 730,000 inhabitants and a workforce of 400,000. Eindhoven generates € 24 billion of GDP and € 55 billion in exports, one-quarter of the Dutch total. It is a manufacturing center in a high-cost country. By focusing on producing high-value, technology-based products, it is in competition with fast-growing manufacturing centers in nations with much lower costs. At the same time, however, Eindhoven is saddled with demographics familiar to Europe, in which a low birth rate and aging population is reducing the regional labor force. To win the battle for the talent that provides its competitive advantage, the region must make itself economically and socially attractive to knowledge workers from around the world and concentrate on innovation.
