Mechatronics/Precision Engineering

The Mechatronics/Precision Engineering degree programme was established in response to the fact that mechanical components are increasingly being combined with electronic control units and will continue this dynamic development into the future. Today, the most important innovations result from a combination of mechanics, electronics, optics, and microtechnology. The result is precision mechanical products for all aspects of everyday life.

Students taking the Mechatronics/Precision Engineering bachelor’s degree programme will gain comprehensive practice-oriented physical and technical knowledge. As a result, students should be capable, thanks to their selected subjects, of developing and constructing components, assemblies, and devices in the fields of mechatronics, precision engineering, and data processing. This includes the expansion and enhancement of mechanical, precision-engineered mechatronic devices by means of sensors, actuators, optical components, microcomputers, and appropriate software in order to create smart products and systems. It also includes the dimensioning and designing of components, the associated production automation from single devices to large-scale production, and sales.
