Mechatronics and Systems Engineering

As an engineer with in-depth knowledge of informatics, electronics and mechanics, you’ll act as an intermediary between the individual disciplines and provide an excellent foundation (key requirements) for innovation and creativity in industry and society. You’ll acquire the integral skills required to connect, design, develop and apply intelligent systems on a broad, cross-disciplinary basis.

This interdisciplinary and extensive programme – with specialisations in robotics and medical technology and a wide range of options for individual focus areas – enables you to gain a vast array of skills in the fields of mechanical design, electronics, informatics, sensor technology, drive technology, control technology, product development, microtechnology, medical technology, robotics, optics/photonics, rehabilitation technology, bionics, prosthetics, mechatronics and system technology.

In this programme, you will

  • Combine mechatronics and system technology at the fascinating interfaces of technology, medicine and robotics

  • Learn how to combine elements of electronics, informatics and mechanics to create high-precision intelligent systems and innovative products

  • Specialise in medical technology and/or robotics

  • Select from a wide range of options to give your degree programme a personal touch (optics/photonics, sensor technology, rehabilitation technology)

  • Acquire a valuable additional qualification if you enrol in our bilingual (German/French) programme;

  • Gain insights into everyday practice by completing various projects and your bachelor’s thesis in cooperation with industry partners;

  • As an interdisciplinary mechatronics specialist and systems engineer, you’ll open up outstanding career prospects in many different sectors.
