The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is one of the founding faculties of the Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences. It offers a qualified education in four Bachelor courses and two Master courses.
The trade teacher course "Automotive engineering  PLUS teaching post" completes the spectrum of the faculty with a didactic/pedagogical component.
Currently there are about 600 students enrolled at the faculty. Eleven laboratories guarantee a modern and practical education. The teaching is practice- and project-oriented. An outstanding project is the development and production of a Formula Student racing car.

Our mission

The aim of engineering education at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is to develop engineers with high professional competence. Through their studies, they should acquire a broad engineering foundation with exemplary practice-oriented specialisation. The course is

  • is practical, individual, high-quality and future-oriented
  • Enables the development of sustainable technical solutions and ensures the ability to communicate with neighbouring disciplines and the natural sciences in addition to specialist scientific skills.
  • includes the basic knowledge of economics and social sciences
  • enables ability to work in a team, but also assertiveness, moral sense of responsibility and ability to reflect
  • includes not only the pure transfer of knowledge, but also personality development

Our communication is characterized by

  • Collegiality, team spirit and respectful interaction
  • objective and appreciative discussion

Our cooperation includes the following indispensable components

  • the proximity of students to their lecturers
  • mutual help and trust
  • intensive cooperation with other faculties, educational institutions and companies

Our region is our focus.

  • support the regional, often internationally active companies
  • are locally rooted, but demand and promote international experience

We see our further development as a social and economic responsibility. This

  • means a continuous development of the faculty, the members of the faculty as well as their institutions
  • represents a joint task in which each member actively assumes responsibility
