About Us

The faculty mechanical engineering exists since 1928. It was one of the three main university departments when the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences was founded. Our perfect material and technical requirements gives us a fantastic atmosphere for studying.

The investment in the new laboratory equipment for more than 20 laboratories on 2700 sqm and the renovation of our machine hall increased our study quality.

The faculty is separated in three different institutes:

  • “Institute of Construction and Applied Mechanical Engineering”
  • “Institute of Mechatronics”
  • “Institute of Production Technology”

Our Ostfalia University disposes contacts to several foreign universities, not only in Europe, but worldwide. The cooperation between the educational establishments has become diverse, and students obtain many different opportunities like internship semester or study abroad semester.

The faculty has a lot of contact to partners in many different countries, for example there are partners in Mexico, USA, France, Spain, UK, Denmark, Norwey, India, Japan and China.

Additional to our partner universities we have many companies in the industry who support our study with practical experience and new ideas for future projects.
