FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences offers a master degree in Mechatronics. Mechatronics is an exciting interdisciplinary field of engineering, based on mechanical and electrical engineering as well as signal and data processing. It can also be seen as a new design philosophy, where these fields are treated in an integrated way.


The Master of Science program in Mechatronics at FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences is an interdisciplinary study program intended for students with a qualified Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or related fields. It is a joint effort by the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and Aerospace Engineering and provides a broad industrially oriented technical knowledge in mechatronic principles, components and system design.

The central idea of the study program is to educate highly qualified students with a first academic technical degree in a compact study program in order to prepare them for the manifold demands of mechatronic product development. At the beginning of the course the students are taught the fundamentals of the other disciplines, which were not the central topic of their first degree. In compulsory modules like Sensors & Actuators, Mechatronic System Simulation or Advanced Motion Control the students pick up the essentials of modern mechatronic systems and their components.

A strong international orientation of the study program results from teaching the major part of the program in English. The use of the English language increases the attractiveness of this Master program for international students. On the other hand, German students gain an additional international qualification by actively working with technical English, but also by the intense contact to the international students.


Graduates of the Master program in Mechatronics are provided a broad range of job opportunities. In Germany most of the 5000 mechanical engineering companies by now employ mechatronic concepts in their products. Mechatronic engineers can be found in a variety of functions such as product development, production and fabrication technology, assembly automation, quality control and technical sales.

Mechatronic engineers presently have outstanding career chances. According to all German and European industrial and engineering associations the demand for well-educated and application oriented mechatronics engineers will continue to steadily rise in the future. Since the expected number of graduates in this field is much lower than the industrial needs the professional chances for mechatronics engineers are predicted to remain excellent in the years to come.
