The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Leibniz University Hannover belongs to the leading technical Universities of Germany. Its teaching and research quality has been certified several times by the Faculty Association for Mechanical and Process Engineering with the seal of approval. The main points of their research are divided into three areas: Production Engineering and Logistics, Energy and Process Engineering, and Design and Development, to which a total of 20 institutes are assigned.

Deanery and Dean of Studies

The Dean's Office, the Dean of Studies, the institutes and the central facilities of the faculty jointly carry out a variety of tasks in order to make research and teaching qualitative, up-to-date and appealing.

Mechanical Engineering Campus

The Mechanical Engineering Campus, officially opened on 19 September 2019, represents a milestone in the history of Leibniz University Hannover. It was the university's largest new building project, completed after almost four years of construction. On the campus, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is now concentrating its performance and diversity of subjects in one place. The campus is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is also an innovative place to study for Master's degrees. The Bachelor students will start their studies at the city campus around the Welfenschloss in Hanover and, as their studies progress, will attend more and more courses at the Mechanical Engineering Campus in Garbsen. The following diagram illustrates the course of studies.

We are the ideal instructor for mechanical engineers

The Bachelor's and Master's degre programs on offer enable students to study according to their individual interests and prepare prospective engineers ideally for the challenges of the professional world. We offer a research-oriented education with an optimal combination of practice, interdisciplinary knowledge transfer and early contacts in industry. Students can support smaller research teams in project work, discover their scientific inclinations, set their own priorities and at the same time build up contacts with industry. Due to the very good international networking with our partner universities, there is also the possibility of integrating a semester abroad into the course of study.

We are the ideal cooperation partner for research and development projects

Our basic research, which is supported by national and international funding institutions, forms an excellent basis for numerous attractive application-oriented research projects. We work at the current international level of research and have professional know-how in our fields of activity. This knowledge, combined with our many years of experience in national and international project cooperations, and our excellent technical equipment make us ideal cooperation partners. We take up impulses from business and science in order to develop demand-oriented solutions in mutual exchange. From basic research, application-oriented research projects to contract research and development, we offer a wide range of cooperation opportunities and provide information on funding prospects.
