Mechanical engineering is more than designing and constructing machines. It’s also about producing these machines using less material. Making them smart and energy efficient. And designing them to run on renewable energy. Take up the challenge with a bachelor of mechanical engineering at HAN.

Start of 2020-2021 academic year: Campus is open
Since the corona outbreak, universities all over the world have switched to distance learning. A great alternative, but not ideal when you're just starting out. The Mechanical Engineering program is therefore offering classes on campus for 1st-year students starting in September this year. You'll get a total of around 8 hours of classes on campus per week spread over 2 days. And you'll follow 12 hours of online classes per week. That way you'll get to know your classmates and lecturers in person as well as online. Great for the group spirit. And once government measures are relaxed, you'll get even more time on campus.
What do you learn?: Program
This mechanical engineering degree covers 2 main fields. The 1st is construction engineering. Here you learn to design machines. Anything from huge cranes to the smallest micro-mechanical healthcare applications. The 2nd is energy systems engineering. This is about designing energy systems to reduce energy. You also learn about steering and control, cost efficient design and human-machine interfaces.
What can you do with Mechanical Engineering?: Careers
With this bachelor degree, you are a qualified mechanical engineer. Your skills will be in high demand in both the commercial and public sectors. Which industry you’ll work for? That depends on your interests. You could work in the process industry, food and agriculture, automation or sustainable energy, for example.
Students as partners: Dutch way of learning
The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.
Mechanical Engineering in numbers
Why study in Holland?
Holland has a large population of international students so you won’t feel alone. In fact, 1 in 10 students is an international student. Why do so many international students come here? Because Holland has excellent, affordable higher education. It also has a thriving economy (18th in the world) so there are plenty of job opportunities. What’s more, the Dutch are open-minded and almost everyone speaks English.
