Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering

Notes and Recommendations

Information options:

  • The University of Kaiserslautern offers multiple information sources. The central point is the Student Service Center (SSC), which can give you information directly, or forward your questions to the knowledgeable staff.

  • Expert advice on the individual programs in the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering can be found through the faculty advisors.


  • Regardless of whether it is open or limited admission, TU requires a written application form. You must complete the form online, print and sign, then mail with the corresponding required documents to the University of Kaiserslautern personally or by mail. TU must receive the packet by the cut off, regardless of the postmark. Applications for admission must be received at University of Kaiserslautern prior to the application period deadline. This is determined by the date of receipt at the TU and not the date postmarked.
  • Application deadlines for applicants with German citizenship, German education (eg Abitur) or from EU countries:
    • Courses with restricted admission: 15.07. (for winter semester) and 15.01. (for the summer semester)
    • Open admission courses: 31.08. (for winter semester) and 28.02. (for the summer semester)
  • Application deadlines for applicants with foreign educational qualifications and from non-EU countries: 15.07. (for winter semester) and 15.01. (for the summer semester)
  • For courses with restricted admission, application deadlines must be met, and late incoming application requests can not be considered in the admissions process.

more information:

  • Internships should be completed as much as possible before the start of the study, in order to keep the semester break available for exam preparation, exams, and completion of study or project work.
  • This recommendation should be followed especially for graduates from Rheinland-Pfalz, who can earn their Abitur after only 12.5 years and choose to begin their studies in the winter semester.

  • Typically, a preliminary course in Higher Mathematics will take place before the start of lectures of the winter or summer semester for freshmen. Such attendance should refresh or supplement existing mathematics knowledge. Details will be published in enrollment documentation. Participation in the preparatory course is strongly recommended.
