Are you interested in state-of-the-art products and technologies? And you want to be a part of solving current challenges? Then have a look at the degree programme Mechatronics/Precision Engineering. In this programme you will learn how to develop innovative products through the skilled combination of precision engineering, electrical engineering, and information technology.

Typical applications are in robotics, environmental and energy engineering, entertainment electronics, e-mobility, and many other fields. We have designed the course catalogue so that students gain a broad theoretical and practice-oriented knowledge of precision engineering, electrical engineering, and electronics as well as information technology and computer science, manufacturing and production engineering, and technical optics. During their studies, there are also many opportunities to put new knowledge into practice – for example, in laboratory components and interesting projects. If you’re interested, you can also work with the university’s “AutonOHM” team for the RoboCup competition or with the “StrOHM+Söhne” team for the Formula Student competition. Both groups have been very successful at national and international levels for a number of years. When you’ve completed your studies, you will be able to integrate sensors, actuators, optical components, microcomputers, and suitable software into mechatronic devices to create “smart” products and systems. We look forward to seeing you!

And by the way, the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region is home to a large number of companies that enjoy worldwide success with their mechatronic products and offer themselves as employers for engineers in the field of mechatronics/precision engineering. That means top career opportunities for you!

Overview of all recognised language proficiency documentation (pdf in German)

  • Required language certificates:

    Instruction in this degree programme is conducted in German. Applicants who are native speakers of a language other than German, who do not have bachelor’s degree from a German educational institution, and who have not completed German-language vocational or professional training at secondary school must provide one of the following certificates as documentation of their German proficiency:

    • German language examination for the university admission of foreign applicants (DSH-Stufe 2)

    • TestDaF (“Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache” with an above-average score (minimally level 4 in all four examination components)
    • Telc German C1 University (“Telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule”)

Personal characteristics and skills

You should:

  • be enthusiastic about technology, mathematics and physics,
  • enjoy to “getting to the bottom” of devices,
  • be curious and creative,
  • think analytically, and
  • want an application-oriented university degree that qualifies you for a profession and employment.

Common stumbling blocks

  • Requirements in further mathematics and physics. Both the design and layout of mechatronic component requires a significant amount of abstract thinking.
  • Necessary stamina for the creation of complex designs and/or software programs
