Engineering basics plus specialization

The mechatronics programme provides you with a broad basic knowledge of mechanical engineering, in particular a combination of computer science, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. Specialization in later semesters makes future interdisciplinary work possible. The programme places a particular focus on systems integration and industrial communications engineering.

Focus areas in the programme are automation technology, drive technology, sensors and digital technology and robotics.

Our graduates are mainly employed in the development of mechatronic systems and the design and implementation of automation solutions.
