Do you like to break new ground and use digital and automated approaches to do so? Would you like to study the latest developments in science and technology?
The Digitalization and Automation study program is aimed at graduates of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, and industrial engineering. In the field of robotics, programming, and technology, you will be introduced to new developments and future-oriented topics. The special features of the newly created curriculum are the advanced study contents and varied teaching activities, such as interactive lectures and practical experiments.
The future of Master's graduates is the digital, computerized, and robotized world. You will develop a comprehensive understanding of digitalization and automation and your studies will prepare you in the best possible way to apply your knowledge in those fields.
- Interdisciplinary study program that includes engineering, data processing, and management
- Putting theory into practice through numerous projects and case studies
- Completely in English and according to the latest industry requirements
- Up-to-date content provided by professors with practical experience
- Selected management content in the study program
- Individual support in small learning groups
Your degree in Digitalization and Automation
On the one hand, the aim of the Master's program " Digitalization and Automation" is, among other things, to deepen the engineering and data processing knowledge, that have already been acquired in a bachelor's engineering degree program as well as to sustainably improve engineering-technical manufacturing processes in a global context.
On the other hand, the multi-layered knowledge should be intensified to enable students to work responsibly and successfully on the rapidly changing tasks at the crossroads between engineering, data processing, and product sustainability.
The Master's program lasts four semesters, in which you acquire the skills to work in companies in the area of engineering and data processing, but to also be a production manager, factory planner, and strategic planner.
You will gain practical knowledge through numerous projects and case studies in each semester. In preparation for the job market, you will not only acquire the needed theoretical knowledge but relevant knowledge for modern tools to optimize the effectiveness of the processes.
A scientific-theoretical orientation of the master's program is shown in the examination of current research statuses in the lectures, as well as in the preparation of scientific papers.
