After Graduation
Industrielle Mechatronik 1

Specialist interdisciplinary expertise in high demand in the high-tech sector

Graduates of the course are highly sought after in the world of work with their specialist expertise in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and IT.

They are able to interlink this knowledge in an interdisciplinary manner and have the ability to view a system as a whole. They design mechatronic facilities or units, carry out calculations and simulations and select the appropriate components. They are also responsible for the specification, development and testing of microcontrollers, control systems and industrial robots.

Industrial Mechatronics graduates are able to ensure the smooth integration and automation of components and software for mechatronic systems. They analyse operational data from the systems and optimise the associated processes. They integrate technological innovation into existing systems and develop new facilities. Their specialist expertise is enhanced by a knowledge of project, requirements and quality management.
