What can I expect

Degree programmes in the field of mechatronics and systems engineering will provide you with the foundational basics as well as elementary technical and methodological knowledge of the areas of mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science. In later semesters, it is possible to specialise in various areas including automation technology, measurement and control technology, operating technology, information technology, or systems engineering. It is also possible to include engineering and management or project management in your studies. As a mechatronic or systems engineer, you will be qualified to develop, construct, and maintain complex electrical devices and machines.

These interdisciplinary degree programmes open the door to an extremely broad spectrum of career paths in various industries. Modern computer-aided systems are used in many application areas, including industrial robots, digital cameras, laser scalpels, and automotive systems.

Even if you decide against a dual course of study, all institutions of higher education emphasise project work and laboratory experiments. Practical periods or entire semesters dedicated to working in industrial companies also ensure a practice-oriented education.

Check your eligibility to study at German higher education institutions (non-binding)

Run a quick and non-binding check to determine whether your certificates make you eligible to study at German higher education institutions. Depending on which educational certificates you provide, you may qualify for all degree programmes or only for certain subjects or types of higher education institutions. It is possible that you do not currently meet the requirements to be eligible to apply to a German higher education institution. In such a case, you may be able to attend a Studienkolleg. Please note that the eligibility check results apply exclusively to undergraduate programmes and are not legally binding.

Once you have completed the non-binding check, degree programmes that match your eligibility will be marked with a corresponding icon.
