Study Program

Mechanical Engineering

Students of the degree course will graduate as mechanical engineers, and will be eligible for employment in all areas of industry, not only in research and development, but also production and operations. The course leads to a qualification as Bachelor of Science according to international standards.


Bachelor of Science (BSc)


8 semesters


Fall semester

The course qualifies students to work as mechanical engineers, deployed in all areas of mineral resources processing in the mining industry, and also in the wider business sector, not only in research and development, but also production and operations. The course leads to a qualification as Bachelor of Science according to international standards.

  • The degree meets the standards of internationally recognised universities.
  • All courses are taught by Mongolian and international teaching staff in English.
  • Courses are strongly practise-oriented, with on-the-job learning phases spent in Mongolian and international companies (the B.Sc. curriculum includes a minimum of 120 days of practical learning).
  • Lectures are given by practicing experts.
  • GMIT cooperates with leading German universities. This offers the possibility to study in Germany during studying at GMIT, e.g. in the framework of summer schools. Furthermore, study exchanges for one or two semesters are planned.
  • Key competences are taught in special workshops, for example project management, and presentation and communication skills.
  • Students are introduced to sociological questions related to the resources and business sectors, either as part of the degree courses as through extra-curricular activities.
  • For employers, the profile of graduates is particularly attractive, due to their practical and international experiences.

The B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering degree course is intended to impart essential knowledge of natural sciences and engineering subjects. An interest in science and technology is therefore a prerequisite for the course.

The bachelor course is oriented toward basic knowledge and methods, but it also gives students their first introduction to more advanced technical subject matter. The programme offers graduates a solid grounding for a successful professional career, since it imparts principles, concepts and methods that are well founded in theory. These will endure for the long term, beyond current sector trends, and provide students with the expertise to assimilate new knowledge at any time.

The B.Sc. course teaches:

  • technical knowledge
  • problem solving and methodological competences
  • extra-curricular key competences
  • English and German language skills.


Graduates are able to perform tasks in the varied fields of application for their mechanical engineering skills, under differing technical, economic and social conditions. They possess the language skills they need to communicate their technical subject matter in an international professional environment. The new forms of teaching and learning and experiential learning, as well as the modules to instil key competences parallel to the technical studies, all combine to provide a targeted preparation for professional life.

The B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering consists of the following components:

A) Mandatory technical modules

  1. Basic engineering; basic mathematics and natural sciences; basic systems science
  2. Basic social sciences
  3. Advanced subjects, as mandatory and optional subjects, e.g.: Construction technology, Energy and process technologies, Quality and project management

B) Language classes

  1. English
  2. German

C) Practical training

  1. Laboratory experience placements
  2. Internships in companies: Guided practical learning in an enterprise

D) Workshops on key competences

E) Project papers and final dissertation
