Mechatronics and Autonomous Systems (MKA)

Mechanical engineering, electronics and computer science this Bachelor's degree program combines all of these three disciplines. The program Mechatronics and Autonomous Systems reflects the complex systems found everywhere today: Cars, robots, airplanes or manufacturing plants are only some of the examples of systems requiring know-how from a number of engineering fields mechatronics experts, as a result, are in very high demand today.

From the 6th semester on, the program offers a choice of two specializations, Automotive Mechatronics and E-Mobility and Industrial Mechatronics and Robotics.

Study content

This focus area deals mainly with mechatronic systems in vehicles. In the past, cars only needed electricity for starters, ignition and lights. Today, mechatronic systems such as parking aids, anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) are standard equipment in vehicles.  [more...]

Career perspectives

Mechatronics engineers plan, develop, manufacture and manage complex systems. For example, they work on robots, airplanes, cars or production plants. Mechatronics engineers are in great demand and have the best career prospects worldwide [more...]

Course of study

The study programme in Mechatronics is designed for a total of 7 semesters and is divided into two study phases. The contents of the first two-semester course of study guarantee that the subsequent professional activity is based on a solid foundation. [more...]
