Automotive Mechatronics Program

If you want to develop, build, and be part of tomorrow's vehicles, you should decide on this degree program!

(Source: Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences)
 
Automotive Mechatronics study program aims at establishing the foundation required in these fields of science upon which modern vehicles are developed. Through the integration of multi-discipline technologies, the different subsystems of the vehicle are designed, fabricated, tested and improved to meet their task requirements. 
 
The program offers the required mechanical background to consider during the design process of the vehicles. The electronic and electrical components are studied as they are the actuators and sensors of the vehicle. The brain of the vehicle is introduced through the utilization of the different programming languages and algorithms. On top of that, control theory is implemented in order to guarantee that the vehicle executes the desired tasks.
 
The Automotive Mechatronics study program opens the door for you towards the future of one of the most widely growing fields of vehicles. It doesn’t only present to you the know-how of the science, but it also provides hands-on experience of how things function and operate in real life. If you are a vehicles’ enthusiast or want to be part of the driverless future vehicle join this study program.
