Name change faculty

The Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) will change its name to Mechanical Engineering, ME for short, on 1 January 2024. With this name, we return to the basis that connects all disciplines within the faculty and strengthen our external profile.

The faculty has been discussing a name change for some time because its current name no longer reflects the faculty's content. The new name is future-proof and also offers room for new, fast-growing disciplines and research areas such as biomedical technology, robotics and energy transition. The new name has a connective character, suiting the profile of a versatile faculty that encourages collaboration with an open attitude.

After consultations with employees from education and research, study associations, professional field and the employee participation body, the Executive Board decided positively on the proposal for this name change in February 2023.
