Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering revolves around analytical thinking and problem solving in the design, production, and operation of physical products and machinery.

Throughout your Mechanical Engineering studies at Kiron, you will start:

  •   Building the fundamental skills and mindset that every engineer must have
  •   Analyzing real-world problems and approach them analytically
  •   Developing engineering models and applying them to solve real-world problems

NOTE: This study track is only recommended for transfer to a university if you live in Germany. If you are located in Jordan or Lebanon, we recommend the Business & Economics or Computer Science study track instead.
