What will I learn in this degree program?
The Mechatronics/Robotics master’s degree program offers solid training at the intersection of mechanical science, electronic engineering, and computer science. This degree program is taught in German. This program centers around a complex and promising technical field and builds on fundamentals gained during the Mechatronics/Robotics bachelor’s degree program or another technical UAS or university degree program. The program is offered full-time or part-time. Students learn to:
- Design complex mechatronic components, assemblies, and systems or robotic systems and parts of robotic systems for use in production, taking technical and economic aspects into account
- Plan and organize the operational manufacturing of components and systems
- Rely on specific knowledge in particular from electrical engineering, computer science, and mechanics to analyze mechatronics problems and develop innovative solutions
- Illustrate technical concepts; decide what system components to illustrate mechanically, electronically, or as software; and then obtain agreement on designs from competent bodies, taking technical standards into account
- Perform calculations for determining the dimensions of functions, components, and elements; and abstract technical requirements
- Use current design tools (CAD, etc.) to create designs for components (assemblies, machinery) that are suitable for production and comply with relevant standards
- Select system components for specific purposes, use components with the right dimensions, and integrate them properly at the intersection of mechanics, electronics, and computer science
- Devise, plan, and carry out projects from a technical, business, and communications perspective that cover the development, manufacturing, implementation, or optimization of mechatronics/robotics systems
- Provide support to other departments, such as purchasing or sales, with technical issues during contract award processes or handle quality management, maintenance, planning, or project management for companies that develop or produce mechatronic systems or use mechatronic systems for production

What will I be able to do in the field after earning this degree?
Engineers specializing in mechatronics/robotics are highly sought-after on the job market:
- Their knowledge means they are perfectly trained for plant construction, industrial robotics, mechatronics, electronics, computer science, automotive engineering, and energy technology.
- They work in project planning for robotics systems, product management, and research and development or as process developers at mechatronics companies, for example.
- Their typical tasks include preparing specifications based on customer requirements analyses, developing products and systems, developing prototypes, managing projects, and handling quality assurance.
What are the admission requirements?
Applicants to this master’s degree program must have a bachelor's degree and/or another recognized academic degree from a (technical) university of applied sciences or university with at least 180 ECTS credits.
