Do you want to actively shape the technical future as a specialist and manager and flip the switch for Industry 4.0?
Then you have come to the right place in mechatronics .
As a combination of (precision) mechanics, electronics and IT , it is the central key technology for numerous everyday products. Whether robotics, sensor or automotive technology - what used to be purely mechanical functions are now almost always supplemented by complex electrotechnical elements in combination with computer and information systems. They form an overall mechatronic system - the interdisciplinary field of work of the mechatronic engineer.
The standard period of study is five semesters , including a master's thesis and colloquium. In four theoretical semesters you will take part in basic lectures and special technical lectures with current content. Practical exercises in laboratories at Esslingen University complement the theoretical training. In mechatronic project work, you will also put what you have learned into practice. In the fourth semester you can specialize in automotive engineering, automation technology or sensor technology. This is followed by your thesis, the master’s thesis, in the fifth semester, which you can either write at Esslingen University or in an industrial company.
Improve your career opportunities with a state-recognized university degree : manage interdisciplinary development projects or take on challenging tasks in research and development. With a master’s degree, you can also take on development management or overall technical responsibility in a company.
A career in technical sales and product management is also possible thanks to your in-depth technical training. Generally speaking, a master’s degree can open the door to management positions in business or the public sector. In addition, with the master’s degree you can also do a doctorate at a university and thus acquire a further scientific qualification.
