Mechatronics Majoring in Digital Production, B.Eng.

Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences & Industrial Engineering

You Shape the Future

The undergraduate Bachelor's programme in Mechatronics with a focus on Digital Production combines practice-oriented teaching and the imparting of scientific knowledge in the field of mechatronics.

Based on the fundamentals of engineering sciences, the focus on digital production deepens specific knowledge of modern automation technology, robotics, networked systems (cloud computing, network communication) and digital methods in production. Up to four selected study modules in the higher semesters are held in English and support the access of foreign students to the course of studies. The programme thus takes into account both the internationalisation of study operations and the so-called digital transformation in industry (Industry 4.0).

In the study of mechatronics - focus on digital production (7 semesters and 210 credits), all lectures are held at the Technology Campus Cham.

A special feature is the opportunity to study the Bachelor's degree course "Mechatronics - Focus on Digital Production" in cooperation with a company from the region - but this is not a requirement.

The tuition fees are financed by the company and the student receives a corresponding company-specific training allowance. The student is thus given the opportunity to integrate into the company structures and processes at an early stage.

The course of studies comprises six theory semesters and one practical semester and concludes with the Bachelor of Engineering - B. Eng.

Career Prospects

The interdisciplinary course of study in the Bachelor of Mechatronics with a focus on Digital Production has the goal of providing an education based on scientific knowledge and methods through practice-oriented teaching.

Building on the fundamentals of engineering sciences, the Digital Production focus deepens specific knowledge of modern automation technology, robotics, networked systems (cloud computing, network communication) and digital methods in production. Two selected study modules in the higher semesters are held in English and support the access of foreign students to the course of studies. The programme thus takes into account both the internationalisation of study operations and the so-called digital transformation in industry (Industry 4.0).

Training takes place exclusively in Cham. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the training, the graduates should be enabled to work independently as engineers in the field of mechatronic systems.

The course is intended to enable students to carry out engineering activities in the following fields:

  •     Development (conception, design, calculation, simulation and construction of hardware and software for mechatronic systems)
  •     Fabrication
  •     Quality assurance
  •     Sales (customer consulting and project management)
  •     Assembly, commissioning and service
  •     Operation and maintenance
  •     Monitoring and assessment

What does a mechatronics course at Cham offer?

  •     Cost savings: A training contract is concluded with an industrial partner for the duration of the course. This partner pays the tuition fees and a monthly training allowance.
  •     Early contact with potential future employer: During the semester break, students already work in the employer's company and thus learn practical operational procedures and detailed technical knowledge.
  •     Close integration of theory and practice: At the Technology Campus Cham, training rooms and laboratories are located in close proximity. Practical parts of the training can be easily integrated into the teaching operation.
  •     Small study group: In contrast to the conventional university, the course of study with in-depth practice takes place in a small study group with intensive supervision.
  •     Modern teaching and learning methods: Classes take place in the modern seminar rooms on campus.
