This master’s degree programme equips you with the skills required to automate, optimise and enhance mechatronic systems. The systems you design perform complex manipulation tasks. Here you apply your expertise in signal processing, artificial intelligence, control technology and robotics.
Specific prior knowledge is required for admission to this profile of the master’s degree programme. Candidates holding a bachelor degree in one of the following disciplines generally meet the criteria:
- Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Microtechnology
- Bachelor of Science in System Technology
An assessment of candidates’ qualifications is part of the admission process at each university of applied sciences. Candidates who do not hold any of the above-mentioned degrees will be assessed in a personal interview.
The focus of the master’s degree programme is on specialising in greater depth; two-thirds of the programme is devoted to this and is completed at a research unit of a university of applied sciences. As part of this in-depth specialisation you will write two project theses and the master’s thesis.
One-third of your degree programme focuses on theory, which is taught in modules. These theory modules are subdivided into three areas:
- Technical Scientific Modules | TSM
- Fundamental Theoretical Principles | FTP
- Context Modules | CM
Your degree programme is planned with support from your advisor. This study advisor will also guide you on the choice of theory modules and specialisation.
