The Mechatronics program from University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten is designed as a full-time study course with a duration of 3 semesters. The program starts every the winter semester. 


The medium of instruction is English. At the beginning of the course, an individual timetable is worked out together with all students, which takes into account the content of the courses completed so far. This strategy is pursued further with the lecture Advanced Mathematics, which provides both a solid foundation and important tools for the further course of study.

The brains of many mechatronic systems are embedded systems, which are mainly dealt with in the second semester. Relevant topics in electrical engineering, such as sensors and actuators, power electronics and electrical drives, are also covered. The simulation and integration of mechatronic systems, as well as their regulation and control, are the subject of further lectures due to their high relevance.

Within the framework of the Scientific Project, students work on their own projects - independently and in international teams. In the third semester, the Master Thesis is completed, often in regional and national industrial companies.

Why study Mechatronics at our RWU

Industrial robots, wind turbines or airbags – perfect examples for the merger of three disciplines: computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering. Short: mechatronics. With your Mechatronics program from University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten, you will deepen your knowledge of the above mentioned disciplines, developing and creating innovative products for the modern industrial and information society.

At the beginning of your studies, an individual timetable will be worked out based on your previously completed Bachelor’s Program and your desired job. Within your curriculum then you will gain valuable practical knowledge combined with international competences, which makes it very easy for our students to start a career at well-known companies, such as Bosch, BWM or ZF. And even though your curriculum does not include a mandatory internship, our RWU supports and even recommends voluntary internships to strengthen practical work experience and to establish social networks.

Your Master’s Degree will enable you to pursue a PhD afterwards. For further information about the individual courses, take a look at the latest Study & Examination Regulations.
