Equipping a robot with sensitive grippers for awkward installation tasks, networking energy flows and communication instruments in the house of the future or developing the stabilisation system of a satellite: these are examples of automation problems that you will solve as part of the degree programme.

To this end, you will acquire expertise in the fields of mechatronics, technical computer sciences and measurement, control and regulation technology. Technical innovation requires these disciplines to be combined. As a systems engineer, you are optimally trained for this and can competently contribute your own ideas.
