Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering in Groningen has a long-running tradition of top research. We offer student a Master's degree programme in Mechanical Engineering that perfectly fits the needs of a flourishing local industry, as well as preparing you for an international career in industry.

The MSc Mechanical Engineering ('Werktuigbouwkunde' in Dutch) is organized with the goal of shaping new leaders in the engineering field. In the North of the Netherlands and, in particular, at the University of Groningen, cutting-edge research in mechanical engineering has been performed across various institutes for many years.

Our Master’s degree programme in Mechanical Engineering makes the connection between a collaboration of highly ranked research institutes, and the demands of modern local and global industry, offering students a unique combination of engineering science and its applications to real-life problems.

The programme offers four different tracks, each preparing you for a different specialized field: (1) Advanced Instrumentation, (2) Smart Factories, (3) Process Design for Energy Systems and (4) Materials for Mechanical Engineering.

The four tracks are created in such a way that the needs of industry are met, perfectly preparing students for the innovative working field. Each track is closely linked to a relevant research institute:

  • Advanced Instrumentation is organized in cooperation with ENTEG, KVI-CART and SRON, research institutes specialized in instrumentation for many decades. Students may choose to focus on either radiation or space instrumentation.

  • Smart Factories was developed with the input of companies from the Innovation Cluster Drachten and the Region of Smart Factories organization. This track is mostly based on control engineering and includes robotics and autonomous systems.

  • Process Design for Energy Systems specifically focuses on the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources. It includes process design as wel as computational fluid dynamics. The research at ENTEG is directly connected to this track.

  • Materials for Mechanical Engineering focuses on the processing of materials for mechanical system applications. This track is a collaboration between ENTEG and t he Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials that is ranked within the worldwide top-15 of materials science research.
