    MECHANICAL ENGINEERING : UNIVERSITY OF DUISBURG-ESSEN

    Right from the beginning of the course, I was sanctioned to take my own decisions. I was also provided with the labs for practical research work. This independence of work provided by the university has helped me to understand the topics better. I applied to the university with the help of an application form.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I am studying a broad degree. In the first semesters, I was taught the basics in the subjects of mathematics, mechanics, science and technical presentation. I also had some lectures in computer science, electrical engineering, materials technology, and machine elements. In the following semesters, I will be having an opportunity to decide on the various specializations, depending on the field that I chose to study.
