Master in Automotive Mechatronics and Management

University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria

Master in Automotive Mechatronics and Management

Rapid developments in vehicle engineering have led to a merging of the fields of Mechanics, Electronics and Informatics. One cause of this is that vehicles meet customer demands by the optimal interplay of various mechanical and electronic components. Many functions in the areas of comfort, safety and efficiency are only made possible by mechatronic systems. In this context specific expertise in the mechatronic disciplines, combined with social- and business economics competences, will be central requirements of future employees and managers in the automotive industry. Precisely these requirements are the focus of the new Master’s degree Automotive Mechatronics and Management.

Future career

This international Master’s programme meets the demand of the motor vehicle industry for engineers who can combine complex individual components into innovative mechatronic systems with improved or completely new functions and in doing so think and act under consideration of qualitative and cost aspects. The fields of activity of graduates are therefore in the execution and management of mechatronic development projects, in the design and validation of mechatronic vehicle systems or as Quality Engineers in the field of Quality Assurance in the product development process.

Practice and Research

The practice-orientation of this programme is guaranteed by close cooperation with companies in the automotive industry. Further, many of the professors and lecturers work in the automotive industry or closely with it. Within the framework of the practical and Master’s projects students work on current projects of the industry.

This school offers programs in:
  • English
