Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering at the interface of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Information Technology. It addresses the development and production of integrated mechanical-electronic systems that automatically collect information and signals, use them to obtain new data, and transform it into forces and movements.
Today, mechatronic systems are omnipresent – in the form of active chassis and security systems such as ABS, TCS, and ESP, in industrial robots, in DVD players for domestic use, or in the form of controls for large commercial aircrafts.
The Bachelor of Science programme Mechatronics at TU Darmstadt enables students to plan and realise complex, innovative mechatronic components and systems.
General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the TU Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. Therefore it is recommended that students complete a Master's programme.
