The competitiveness of future motor vehicle generations will be determined by the performance of their mechatronic systems. The share of the added value of a motor vehicle of its electronic and mechatronic systems is already over 30% and a further rapid increase is forecast. Apply now for this Automotive Mechatronics and Management programme at University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria.


The reasons for the increase in the significance of mechatronic systems are many. The ever-higher requirements, both legal requirements and those of customers, with respect to efficiency, functionality, comfort and safety demand the use of innovative mechatronic technologies. 

Motor vehicle manufacturers and suppliers must respond to these changes with innovative mechatronic products and systems to defend their market shares. Companies are therefore on the lookout for well-qualified engineers from this Automotive Mechatronics and Management programme at University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria who can combine complex individual components into innovative mechatronic systems with improved and completely new functions whilst at the same time thinking and acting in market-and business economics oriented ways.


  • Project Leadership and Project Management in the field of product development of mechatronic systems with a combination of engineering and economics tasks (e.g. investigation of requirements and drawing up of technical specifications and contracts, technical and economic coordination of the project team, obtaining and evaluating orders etc.)
  • Development Engineer for Mechatronic Systems mainly in the fields of system design (establishment of the essential physical and logical effects of the future product in the form of an interdisciplinary solution concept), system integration (integration of the results of the individual domains to a whole system) and   verification and validation (matching of the achieved system characteristics to the system design) 
  • Automotive Quality Management: in this position graduates are responsible for drawing up quality plans in cooperation with the responsible departments, moderating FMEAs and other quality methods, carry out initial samplings on both the supplier and the customer side and supervise the transfer to series production of mechatronic systems.
  • Self-employed entrepreneur in the field of Mechatronics focusing on the design and validation of mechatronic systems or in the field of Quality Management.
