Programme profile

This programme is devised to meet the multidisciplinary requirements of today’s industry and combines the expertise from areas of electrical and mechanical engineering with information processing.

In addition to delivering a solid understanding of these areas, this programme aims to develop further skills needed to carry out and manage engineering projects. Specially designed courses enable students to identify the environmental impact of technology and encourage them to act responsibly. Through elective modules, students may tailor their courses according to their own inclinations and interests.

The practice-oriented learning environment at FHWS makes them capable of applying the know-how and scientific methods to solve engineering problems independently. This programme also focuses on personality development by offering foreign languages, interaction in multicultural teams, soft skills and further social competences. The degree programme can also serve as a solid foundation for graduate studies

Programme content

The programme can be divided into three stages. At the first stage, consisting of three semesters, basic and foundation modules are offered. The emphasis is on the fundamentals of engineering, mathematics, computing, natural sciences and soft skills.

The second stage of the programme, consisting of the fourth and fifth semester, deals with core modules of mechatronics. The theory and lab courses, offered at this stage, involve control systems, measuring techniques, actuators, software engineering, embedded systems, design & simulation of mechatronic systems etc. A wide range of elective modules with direct industrial relevance to automation, robotics, manufacturing, power engineering and automotive sectors is also offered during the fifth semester.

The final stage of the degree programme, consisting of the sixth and seventh semester, involves practical training with real-world problems. The major part of the sixth semester is an internship in industry. During this internship students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the industrial problems. This way they develop a problem-solving approach. The seventh semester involves an engineering project, a Bachelor’s thesis and some interdisciplinary lab work.
