If you are one of those technic-savvy persons who want more than limited knowledge and who can and want to work in the classical individual disciplines as well as interdisciplinary, then the seven semester-long degree course Mechatronics is the right choice for you. The program qualifies you for demanding tasks in many areas of engineering, i.e. automotive or medical engineering.
At the beginning of the your studies you will focus on natural and engineering science courses, such as for instance mathematics, physics, engineering mechanics, construction and electrical engineering. In the second year, these technical subjects will be further enhanced and the acquired knowledge in lab works and project phases are practically implemented. During the third year, the practical study term is planned in a company. Thereby you will further expand your knowledge in typical application subjects such as Mechatronics like for instance, automation or automotive mechatronics and sets a new focus on obligatory subjects. The bachelor thesis is a final examination. After a successful completion of the bachelor thesis with the "academic degree Bachelor of Engineering"
The degree course can be studied as of the winter semester. Prerequisite is a higher education entrance qualification.
Modularization during the studies is a study structure, in which courses such as lectures, exercises, practical internships, excursions, excursions or seminars about certain topics are combined in modules. The structure of a module is determined by the competence, which is to be achieved upon completion of the module.
The module manual entails information on the duration, credits, type of examination, requirements, study results, workload, type of learning, content, literature, and the representative of the module of a degree course. Further information can be found in the guideline on modularization and credit point awarding of the Bund-Länder commission. The module overview and the study content can be downloaded in form of a PDF.
Students, whose course of study has deviated from the regular course of full-time studies – for whatever reason – can seek personal counseling from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.
Goal of the counseling is, while considering personal conditions of an individual course of study, to graduate in an appropriate period of time. In order to reach this goal, we will develop a course plan together with you.
It is also checked whether there are reasons for a formal application of part-time studies. Additional information about the requirements and study organization of part-time studies can be found on the pages of the Admissions office.
The consultation is offered by the degree course counselors or the degree counselor of your degree course. Please schedule an appointment via email.
Mechatronics combines traditional engineering disciplines mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronics and the area of computer science. The close integration of electronical and mechanical components with microprocessors, DSPs and FPGAs result in new fascinating opportunities to solve technical problems. Innovations i.e. in the automotive industry or in medical engineering cannot be imagined without the use of mechantronics.
