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.

Robotics and Automation – the technology of the future! Engineers in that field solve the problems of today and develops the products of tomorrow. This field forms the bridge between Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. That's why our students learn methodically and across disciplines to solve technical problems.
 
The Program qualifies students to describe, model and simulate complex technical systems with Mathematical and Technical foundations of Mechanics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and thus enable them to make a significant contribution to the development of Mechatronic Systems consisting of sensors, actuators, information processing and the mechanical structure including communication technology and human machine interface with a special focus is on robotics and automation and its applications.
 
With a degree in Robotics and Automation, you are well prepared for current and future development tasks in the national, regional and globally active industry.
 

Automation and Control Engineering

 

The Bachelor's program in Electrical Engineering (EE) offers scientific methods and skills for solving problems in practical settings. The EE program leads to a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree. Important objectives of the study program are the teaching of methodological and social competence in small seminar groups. In addition to the seminars, the students com-plete a large proportion of practical laboratory exercises and carry out projects that are inten-sively supervised by professors and teaching assistants.
The Bachelor's program in Electrical Engineering prepares students for engineering activities in (1) the development of devices and systems in electrical energy and automation technology, (2) project planning of electrical and automation systems and (3) their operation, testing and maintenance.  The technical and methodological skills are developed for the following cutting-edge areas of electrical engineering:
 
 Automation Engineering and Control of Cyber-physical Systems (CPSs)
 
Mathematical modeling and simulation of automated systems and CPSs, in particular for control engineering
Development of hardware and software components for process automation
Programming of microcomputers and programmable logic controllers for production systems and mobile applications 
Development and project engineering of distributed automation systems and their con-trol via digital networks
