The undergraduate programme "Mechatronics majoring in Digital Production" combines practice-oriented teaching imparting scientific knowledge on 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. The programme thus takes into account the so-called digital transformation in the industry (key word: Industry 4.0).
In the undergraduate programme "Mechatronics majoring in Digital Production" (7 semesters and 210 credits), all lectures are conducted at the Campus Cham.
A special feature is the opportunity to study this bachelor's degree course in cooperation with a regional company - this is not a requirement, though.
The student service fees are financed by the company and students receive a corresponding company-specific training allowance. Students are thus given the opportunity to integrate into the company structures and processes at an early stage.
This course of study comprises six theoretical semesters as well as one practical semester and concludes with the academic degree Bachelor of Engineering - B. Eng.
Degree: Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
Duration: 7 semesters (3.5 years)
Start: 1st October (winter semester)
Application Period: 15 April - 15 July
Taught in: German
Admission requirements :
Fees: No tuition fees, only €62 student service fee per semester
The interdisciplinary undergraduate programme "Mechatronics majoring in Digital Production" aims at providing education based on scientific knowledge and methods through practice-oriented teaching.
Building on the fundamentals of engineering sciences, the programme's focus on Digital Production deepens specific knowledge of modern automation technology, robotics, networked systems (cloud computing, network communication) and digital methods in production. Two study modules selected in the higher semesters are conducted in English and support the access of foreign students to this course of study. The programme thus takes into account both the internationalisation of study operations as well as the so-called "digital transformation in the industry" (Industry 4.0).
Training takes place exclusively on Campus Cham. Owing to the interdisciplinary character of this training, graduates are to be enabled to work independently as engineers within the field of mechatronic systems.
This course is intended to enable students to carry out engineering activities in the following fields:

In addition to the classic lectures in the lecture hall, there is also the dynamic concept of case studies in the two master's programmes and the practical project module in this bachelor's programme. Here, student working groups are formed to deal with a specific research topic in an application-oriented manner during the semester. As part of the bachelor's project module, a driverless transport system was implemented that autonomously travels to defined stations, e.g. loaded with tools.
