Mechatronics

Bachelor of Science

Mechatronik, B.Sc.

Description

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.

Special Features ---

Those who decide to study Mechatronics at the TU Darmstadt should be interested in the fields of Mechanical Engineering as well as Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. Basic knowledge in Mathematics and Physics is as essential for a successful course of study as the willingness to continuously expand this knowledge.

Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.

Mechatronics engineers often cooperate with experts in the aforementioned individual disciplines in their daily working life, but unlike these experts, they possess rather interdisciplinary knowledge. Therefore, they often assume a coordinating role.

Use these tools for a smart start into the programme:

General Information: With the Bachelor of Science, the students will acquire a first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science is considered the standard qualification at TU Darmstadt. For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

Mechatronics is considered a promising discipline with high growth potential. Thus, the job opportunities for graduates of this programme are very good – not least because they are presented with a large number of fields of occupation. Mechatronics engineers are employed, for example, in the different sectors of machinery and plant engineering, the automotive and aviation industry, or the electrical industry. There, they work in development, design, assembly, production, system design, quality assurance as well as management. They are particularly qualified to hold executive positions due to their interdisciplinary knowledge and their ability to think systemically.

It is important to start early in the degree programme to gain practical work experience in relevant organisations. In this way, students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
