With over 4,900 students,
Faculty V (Transport and Mechanical Systems) is the largest
engineering school at the Technical University of Berlin.
The programmes take place to a large extent in the form of lectures and seminars with certain characteristics of a project, in that the students learn how to solve current, practically-orientated problems holistically through teamwork. Many of these exercises arise directly from cooperation with the engineering industry; new knowledge flows from research into the teaching. The aim of this is not only to keep the students up-to-date with the state of technology and to equip them with practical skills, but also to teach them the lifelong skill of being able to independently adapt to new topics and occupational fields, in order to keep pace with technological developments.
The ways in which society is changing are also reflected in day-to-day university life: in the engineering science programmes of our Faculty, there are almost 550 female students at present, making up 13% of the total students. Even ten years ago, this proportion was still barely over 5%. Our Faculty works on many projects both at and with high schools, with the aim of encouraging young women to study engineering sciences.
Through the introduction of the two-level structure of the bachelor and master programmes, the recognition of qualifications both abroad and within Germany has become much easier, and the international mobility of students has significantly increased. The lectures and seminars are ordered into streamlined module groups based on credit points. The extensive array of choices on offer is a particular feature of Faculty V at the TU Berlin. We aim to encourage you to build on the foundation of your own strengths and interests, and to develop your own individual academic and professional profiles.
The master courses offered by Faculty V are predominantly consecutive, i. e. they follow on directly from a corresponding bachelor course. For instance, the bachelor course Mechanical Engineering is the foundation for the three master courses in Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, and Biomedical Technology; from the four study directions of the bachelor course in Transport Systems come the four master courses Aeronautics and Astronautics, Vehicle Engineering, Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, and Transport Planning and Operation. The bachelor courses of Engineering Science and Informatics in Engineering follow on to master courses with the same names.
