    After successfully completing your studies, you will graduate with the internationally recognized Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree.

    Regular model

     During the basic study period (first three semesters), students will learn the basic principles of mechanical engineering. After that, in the main study period, they expand their knowledge in engineering and management topics and deepen their knowledge by choosing suitable electives.

    The fifth semester is a practical semester in a partner company in Germany for international students; in non-German speaking countries for German students. Usually the bachelor theses will be elaborated in connection with a partner company in Germany for international students; in non-German speaking countries for German students.

    All compulsory lectures in the first four semesters are held in English (except for “Introduction production technology” – taught bilingually (German/English) and “Deutsch als Fremdsprache Level B2”). German language skills are acquired during the time at RWU. In the sixth semester, the main medium of instruction is German.

    Special model in cooperation with the Penang Skills Development Centre and companies in Malaysia (Model M)

    During the first two semesters, students will learn the basic principles of mechanical engineering. The third semester is a practical semester to be conducted in Malaysia with the chosen partner company and the fourth semester takes place in the Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC) for the courses related to digital production and Industry 4.0.

    In the fifth and sixth semester, students will focus on enhancing their knowledge in engineering and management topics and deepen their knowledge by choosing suitable electives.

    In the seventh semester, the students will conduct their bachelor thesis project with the partner company in Malaysia.

    Students who complete this seven semesters study program will receive the internationally recognized Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree issued by the University.

    All compulsory lectures will be taught in English except for “Introduction production technology” and “Deutsch als Fremdsprache Level B2”. The subject “Introduction production technology” will be taught bilingually (German/English) and for “Deutsch als Fremdsprache Level B2” no initial skills in German are required.

    German language skills are acquired during the time at RWU.
