Course catalogue

The studies in the master's degree course Mechatronics and Robotics include the following areas:

  • Mechatronics: Modules on the topics simulation, regulation, measuring technology and networking take up current topics and trends of mechatronics.
  • Robotics: Next to an introduction into the industrial applications of robotics in the fields of automation and production, another focus is on assistance robots, autonomous systems and methods of artificial intelligence.
  • Project work: The course entails two project modules with each 10 ECTS credits and concludes with a one-semester long master's thesis (30 ECTS). The project modules can be thematically combined with the master's thesis, so that it can be an opportunity to work on a continuing three-semester long research project.

All lectures are further enhanced through exercises and practical experience in labs. Excursions to industrial companies and fair visits complement the course offer.

Here you can find the obligatory modules of the faculty. The abbreviations behind the modules will tell you for which degree courses the modules can be elected.

Admission requirements

Applications can be submitted until April 15, for the summer semester and until September 15, for the winter semester.

-Requirements for an admission to this degree course is a first qualifying degree from an institution of higher education in the fields of mechatronics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or a similar course with at least 210 ECTS credits and a final grade of 2.5 or better.

-English language skills on a level B1 are mandatory for successful studies since several lectures are held in English. These English skills can be proven by demonstrating that English was studied for at least five years at a secondary school, a respective language certificate or equivalent language skills are to be proven. Graduates with a bachelor's degree attained at Faculty 2 - Computer Science and Engineering have attained the required knowledge during the undergraduate studies. The institution of higher education offers compact and study-accompanying English courses at the Language Center (Fachsprachenzentrum), which allows students to close potential individual gaps independently.

Part-time studies

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.
