Mechatronics and Digital Production
Shape the digital age!
Are you a creative person who wants to shape the future with your ideas? Would you like to contribute to digital change in business and society? Do you find mechanics, data processing and electronics fun? Do you want to take a practical degree? Then sign up for the Bachelor of Mechatronics and Digital Production on the University Campus Tuttlingen.
They are in industrial robots, smart factories and language assistants: nowadays electronic components are integrated into many products or systems with many different applications. And the trend shows no signs of stopping: in the future factories will be networked and digital, processes will be automated and systems will be intelligent. The digitalisation of business, society and companies means mechatronics specialists with interdisciplinary know-how are in demand in the fields of mechanical, plant and medical engineering, as well as in the automotive, sensors, automation technology and industrial electronics sectors.
As a graduate of the 7-semester programme you are ideally prepared to meet the demands of these fields because the Mechatronics and Digital Production degree programme on the University Campus in Tuttlingen meets the needs of these sectors. The programme combines the core engineering disciplines of mechanical and electrictrical engineering with automation technology and IT. The programme gives you the interdisciplinary knowledge you need for a promising career in engineering. And best of all: your mechatronics course is run in the technology hotspot of Tuttlingen in cooperation with industry.
In the 7-semester programme you will first concentrate in the first two semesters on the engineering basics. In the advanced level studies you will specialize in either Mechatronics or Production focusing on questions of systems integration, industrial communications technology, digitalisation and networked production. The programme gives you the best possible preparation for the challenges of the 4th industrial revolution.
Focus areas of the programme
- Information processing and programming
- Electrical engineering and electronics
- Production engineering
- Mechanics and design
- Automation technology
- Drive technology

Graduates of the Mechatronics and Digital Production programme develop mechatronics systems, and design and implement automation solutions. They develop strategies and realise technologies for the intelligent, networked, digital factory (smart factory). They are key players in the automation and digitalisation of systems, processes, plant and machines. The demand for specialists in companies is therefore extremely high - higher than the supply.
Fields of employment
- Development and design of digitalised mechatronic systems
- Development and implementation of digitalised production processes
- Commissioning of complex systems
- Assembly and automation technology
- Implementation of automation solutions
The next career step after your bachelor's
The bachelor's degree is the first step in a successful career, but you can also take a master's degree either at Furtwangen University or another university. The optimal option for you after taking your bachelor's degree in Mechatronics and Digital Production would be the Master of Mechatronics Systems on the Furtwangen University Campus in Tuttlingen .

Study Mechatronics "Powered by industry"
The Bachelor of Mechatronics and Digital Production programme on the Tuttlingen Campus is run in close cooperation with industry. The companies belonging to the Friends of University Campus Tuttlingen are actively involved in the shaping and teaching of the mechatronics programme. The course is therefore workplace relevant, highly current and "powered by industry": company visits and student projects are held in various companies.
Practicals actually take place in the company labs. So as a student, this gives you deeper insights into the field of mechatronics and production as well as the everyday work and demands of engineers working in this field.
Study in the technology hot spot of Tuttlingen
Tuttlingen is not only the world centre of medical technology. Core industries also include mechanical and plant engineering, metalworking, precision engineering, machine tools, sensors, drive and control technology, and automation and manufacturing technology. It is one of the strongest industrial regions in the state and in Germany.
