Besondere Voraussetzungen

Pre-internship (recommended)


Stay abroad possible, but not obligatory.


In mechatronics, the interaction of mechanical and electronic components as well as signal processing is examined and taught.

Developments in vehicle construction, aviation technology, machine tool construction or medical technology depend on the interaction of these aspects. Examples of this are anti-lock braking systems and airbags in vehicles, robots in automation processes and machine tools.


  • Automotive mechatronics
  • Medical technology
  • Production technology

The content of the mechatronics degree programme consists of two main areas. In addition to the theoretical training in the lectures and exercises, practical training takes place in experimental laboratories and independent project work as well as in an eight-week basic internship, which should be completed before the start of your studies, if possible.

Starting in the fourth semester, students choose elective modules to acquire interdisciplinary skills or to deepen their knowledge in technical areas. As part of the bachelor thesis, the gained knowledge is independently expanded and applied to the thesis. The results obtained in this way are documented in the form of a written work and presented in a presentation.

Empfohlene Fähigkeiten

Mechatronics students should possess strong powers of imagination and abstraction. It is also important that they have a technical flair, an interest in mathematics and a logical way of thinking. Good foreign language skills are very important for entering the job market. For this reason, English language skills are recommended.

The programme involves eight weeks of basic internship, which prospective students are strongly recommended to complete before embarking on the degree programme. No specific time is set aside for completing this basic practical training during the degree programme.

Tätigkeitsfelder und Berufsmöglichkeiten

The career prospects for Mechatronics graduates are exceptionally good. They are deployed wherever an intelligent nexus of individual subjects can increase the overall functionality of a system. Typical fields of work are in the automotive and aviation industry, mechanical engineering, media technology and medical technology.

Zugangsvoraussetzungen und Bewerbung


This degree programme is admission-free.
If you did not graduate from a German school nor have a German higher education entrance qualification (for example, the Abitur), a language certificate proving your knowledge of German is required for the application and enrollment.
