The bachelor degree program in Mechatronics offers a profound technical education which opens up a vast range of opportunities in the labor market. Mechatronics unites elements from the traditional disciplines of mechanical engineering and mechanics, electrical engineering and electronics as well as information technology and informatics. In doing so, it has facilitated the development of innovative technologies such as electronic imaging, smart robotics, electro-mechanical simulation, or rapid manufacturing. Automated systems and machines have thus become functional units where mechanical, electronic and computer-operated components interact with one another. The development, installation, operation and maintenance of such electro-mechanical systems require experts with an interdisciplinary background spanning the above-mentioned disciplines. Major: Medical Engineering* NEW The Medical Engineering branch fuses skills from machine engineering, electrical engineering, and information processing with medical areas of application within an innovative and dynamic environment. Already today the diagnosis and treatment of diseases depends on diverse technologies for support – a trend which will become increasingly manifest in the near future. *Subject to Accreditation Major: Electrical Engineering The creation of value in industrial production is currently experiencing a shift towards electronics and software development. Following this trend, the major in Electrical Engineering builds on a basic training in mechatronics and additionally concentrates on special subjects such as communications and circuit technology. Major: Mechanical Engineering The branch of study is designed to prepare graduates for the challenges of modern mechanical engineering. The program offers specialized training based on the three cornerstones of mechatronics. Additional focus is put on computer-aided methods of mechanical engineering, and the operation and control of complex systems.
