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.

 The course imparts the following specialist, social and methodological skills:

  • In-depth knowledge of modeling and simulation of mechatronic systems
  • Ability to understand and apply modern methods of developing mechatronic products based on the current state of the art
  • Ability to calculate and dimension mechatronic products and components
  • Ability to scientifically founded planning, design and development of complex mechatronic products including all domains including software
  • Ability to develop, implement and simulate control and automation concepts for mechatronic systems
  • Ability to analyze, formulate, process and solve complex, also incompletely defined tasks in the field of mechatronics taking into account technical, scientific, social, ethical, ecological and economic aspects and legal requirements 
  • Ability to independently acquire new knowledge and skills
  • Ability to successfully use and develop the methods learned to formulate and solve complex tasks in research, development and production in industry or in research institutions
  • Ability to lead a team and to plan, organize and document one's own work and the work of an interdisciplinary team and to present and represent it in public or in front of a specialist audience
