Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering
With the development of innovative technologies, engineers make an enormous contribution to mastering future challenges on an ecological, economic and social level. By means of technical know-how, creativity and teamwork, they design resource-saving concepts for the sustainable protection of nature.
These concepts are ultimately applied in all areas of life – whether mobility, medical technology or the treatment of drinking water. By studying at the Faculty of Engineering, you become part of the team!
The Faculty of Engineering unites four Departments, which cooperate closely in teaching and research:
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
- Mechanical Engineering/ Process and Environmental Engineering
- Maritime Studies, Systems Engineering and Logistics
All Departments are located on the Wismar campus except for the Department of Maritime Studies, Systems Engineering and Logistics, which is located with its own campus in the seaside resort of Warnemünde, the northern district of the Hanseatic city of Rostock.
Events and Workshops
Research is an important part of our faculty. It focuses on socially relevant, future-oriented issues, which we address in interdisciplinary and application-oriented projects. The development of networks and cooperation with research partners from science and industry is just as important as the promotion of young researchers.

The International Office is the overseas port of our University so to speak. It is the point of departure for students, tutors and employees heading out into the world through a wide variety of exchange programmes with our partner universities. Conversely, we are the first port of call for those wishing to come to us as a student, tutor or member of staff from our partner universities.
The atmosphere on the Campus is international in character. Nevertheless, you will not have any difficulty learning German during your time with us. We are not a university for the masses. Everyday life at the University will provide you with ample opportunities for interpersonal interaction on all levels.
