High-tech for modern living and working environments
A modern, interdisciplinary engineering science. The fundamentals are mechanical engineering, electrical and control engineering as well as computer sciences. The knowledge acquired in these disciplines is complementary and enables mechatronics engineers to develop various systems for high-tech products as we find them everywhere today: cell phones, automobiles, aircrafts and trains, energy and production facilities, logistics systems, light-emitting diodes – LEDs and OLEDs, imaging technologies and laser-based applications through to the mega trend, electric mobility. Based on the intelligent connection of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer sciences, "Mechatronics" generates new prospects today for the world of tomorrow.
The degree course
In addition to the regular attendance study program, the integrated degree course in "Mechatronics" puts a strong emphasis on practical relevance. After earning the bachelor degree, the graduates can choose from varied occupational careers: for example, in fields like electrical engineering and electronics, industrial and consumer electronics, machinery and plant engineering, automotive and aerospace industry, automation engineering, robotics, microsystems and precision engineering or medical engineering. The spectrum is enormous: product or project management, design, production, sales and distribution or product services.
Major fields of study:
- Lighting Systems Engineering
- Global Production Engineering
- Systems Design Engineering
Practice and theory
Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences offers the Mechatronics degree course in different variants:
- Regular attendance study program
- International study program
- Dual study program integrating practical experience
- Dual study program integrating vocational training
More information about the variants
Regular study program
The standard study period is seven semesters. The fourth semester is intended as a practical semester that you will spend in a company.
International study program
The standard study period is seven semesters. The fourth semester is intended as a semester abroad that you will spend in a company or at one of our partner universities.
Dual study program integrating practical experience
The standard study period is seven semesters. During the semester break, the lecture-free period in the time between the winter and summer term and vice versa, no courses take place at the university for several weeks. In a dual study program, these periods are used for practical project work. In the ideal case, you will spend these practical phases in a partner company, which will support you financially in return for your work. Many companies, for example, accept the expenditures for literature, travel costs or participation fees for events etc.
Dual study program integrating vocational training
Here too, the standard study period is seven semesters. However, before you take up your studies at the university, you complete your first training year in an enterprise, with which you have concluded your training contract to become a Mechatronics technician or your training contract for a related occupation in the electrical engineering or metal processing field. In the second and third training year, you spend one day per week in the training company during the semester and also during the lecture-free period. In the course of the training period, you will receive a salary from the training company.
