BSc Systems Engineering

The interdisciplinary synthesis of electrical engineering, computer sciences and mechanical engineering.

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.

Insights into the Systems Engineering degree

Degree

Specialisations

On the one hand, the specialism programme serves to give students case-study-based training in a specialist area while also helping students to get on to the career ladder. There are a number of modules to choose from, whereby you arrange the study programme to suit your interests. We have put together six of these modules for you to create a "profile" that is set out on your diploma upon successful completion of the programme.

Student projects

Project work involving interesting assignments set by industry are a fundamental component of each semester. Students are in contact with clients and suppliers, become familiar with the business environment and can develop their own network of contacts.
