How do you ensure that a bridge can withstand an earthquake? How do you make a safe but spectacular rollercoaster? Can you use 3D printing to create a cargo ship? What improvements can you envisage for mobile devices and e-bikes?
Mechanical engineers devise, design, create and improve all kinds of machines, constructions, processes and techniques. For any social question that requires a high-tech answer, a mechanical engineer will be part of the solution.
The programme has an innovative structure, delivered by lecturers from both VU Amsterdam and the University of Twente.
Most of the lectures you attend will take place in Amsterdam. From time to time, you will travel to Enschede, because some of the lessons you will get there for example for laboratory work. This means that you are regularly in Enschede for two consecutive days. You can find more practical information about this programme on the website of University of Twente . and you can read more about the collaboration between the VU and UT in general here.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
