With each new, innovative development, the inner workings of modern products increase in complexity. Not only that but as products evolve, research and development efforts for the subsequent generation of products also grow more and more complex. In order to keep up with this cycle, engineering teams have begun to replace or supplement conventional mechanical approaches to problem-solving with newer electronic and software-based approaches, creating a new integral, multidisciplinary design process referred to as mechatronics. This complex meshing of disciplines requires profound technical expertise as well as finely-tuned soft skills in order to work effectively in the diverse teams of experts it frequently involves.
The Bachelor’s program Mechatronic Systems Engineering was designed with these advanced qualifications in mind, employing a highly technical, interdisciplinary approach with three main areas of emphasis: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science. The unique combination of modules expands upon these three core disciplines with additional units in natural science, technology, and management techniques, providing a very broad professional foundation. At the same time, the continuous emphasis is placed on developing team skills through practical exercises, extensive group activities, and exciting, student-led projects, which provide ample opportunity to put growing theoretical knowledge and management skills to the test.
Altogether, the degree program consists of seven semesters of full-time study. A solid foundation in science and engineering is imparted in the first three semesters. Following this, your knowledge will be enhanced in key specialist areas in the fourth and fifth semesters. During this time, students also choose elective courses to form a more robust and meaningful study profile. The sixth semester is dedicated to gathering practical work experience at a company or organization in the biomaterials field. The seventh and last semester is for writing the thesis. Here, we also attach great importance to practical relevance and support collaborative theses with the private sector. Furthermore, the necessary skills for writing a thesis are provided in intense block courses during the seventh semester. The study program concludes with an oral presentation of the research findings in the thesis.
