The consecutive Master's programme enables Bachelor's graduates in mechatronics and other related fields of study to deepen their knowledge and understanding of networked systems in digital production.

  • Degree: Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)
  • Duration: 3 semesters or 18 months
  • Start: Annually at campus Deggendorf in October
    Annually at campus Cham in March
  • Course language: English

Admission requirements

  • Undergraduate degree or equivalent with a min. of 210 ECTS credits from a German or international university in the following subject areas: Industrial Engineering, Engineering Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics
  • English Telc B2 certificate or equivalent

Key areas of study

  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Cooperative and autonomous systems
  • Advanced simulation systems
  • Additive manufacturing

Intelligent, self-regulating, sensor-based and networking production systems are to enable “smart factories” in the near future. Apart from this industrial Internet of things (IIOT), robots, on the other end of the spectrum have even become relevant in social areas. Many surgical interventions are robot-assisted and even in nursing an increasing amount of technology is implemented for efficiency or to replace a lack of specialists. Automatization, digitalization, and robotics are developing at a very high rate.

Major topics, such as virtual and augmented reality, autonomous driving and ambient assisted living will have an enormous impact on our daily lives in future. The demand for highly-qualified staff will increase steadily over the next few years and experts are sought after more than ever. You and your creative ideas can be the answer. You can be the person in demand, who is sought after in a more and more digitalized world. With a master’s in Mechatronic and Cyber-Physical Systems, you meet the needs of future jobs and can shape the future.

In four technology-orientated study units students are taught:

  • Modern simulation systems
  • Cooperative and autonomous systems
  • Innovative human-machine interfaces
  • Additive manufacturing processes

Two inter-disciplinary study units take a look at specific applications of cyber-physical systems as well as in the functional safety of software-based control and automation systems.
