The relevance of automation technology in everyday life is well-known. Digitalisation forms the basis of everything, not only in industry, but also in private life.The Bachelor Degree Programme in Smart Automation is focussed on these topics known by the umbrella term “Industry 4.0”. Industry 4.0 encompasses the digitalisation of internal and external company value chains as well as product and service offerings and entire business models, all of which are thus revolutionised by it. Furthermore, individual customer requirements are to be realised with serially produced products, optimised decisions are to be made in flexible business and engineering processes, and resource productivity and efficiency are to be increased.


Smart Automation is primarily focussed on the automation of technical processes and includes smart products and organisational processes. The fields of activity are correspondingly diverse with a particular focus on activities such as planning, development and implementation in the technical surrounding. These activities cover the spectrum from the product and service development to production, maintenance and service.


A sound knowledge of automation technology provides the foundation for you to specialise in one of the areas product, production or process. In these core areas, you will work on theoretical examples which you will then implement as laboratory and programming exercises. The Degree Programme is held in English and is therefore best-placed for work in an international context.
