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 yearCampus 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.

Students as partnersDutch 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.

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.
