MechatronicsDownload as PDF Add to favorites
Mechatronic systems already have high economic and technical importance today, which will become even more significant in the future. In particular, mini and micro systems such as hard disks, pacemakers and driving stability systems are associated with the term mechatronics.
The Systems concept is key to mechatronics: Mechatronic developments call for the interaction of the engineering disciplines of mechanical engineering, electronics and information technology.
Students of Mechatronics at HSU are therefore trained in the holistic approach. They will later not be all-rounders though, but specialists with the ability for interdisciplinary thinking. In the Master’s in Mechatronics, the mandatory subjects of mathematics, numerical analysis, mechanics, fluid mechanics, machine dynamics, computer science and control systems reflect the spirit of mechatronics with their alignment. More of these basic subjects provide the student with methods that enable them to delve more deeply into more complex tasks. This is the cornerstone of a challenging job in the area of research and development or later in the context of a PhD. In addition, there is the specific mandatory subject ‘Mechatronic Systems’. The student can also choose between several specialisations (including Applied Mechanics, Automation Technology).
The mechatronics engineer has wide areas of mechanical engineering and electronics open to him/her. It is not possible to give a comprehensive list of the areas of application here, but for example automotive technology, medical technology, process automation, consumer electronics, and systems construction are just a few.
- Technically relevant bachelor, grade of at least ‘Good’.
