Curriculum content bachelor's degree Systems Engineering
Mechatronics and Medical Technology are two innovative areas of systems engineering. These young engineering disciplines are increasingly gaining importance. They are based on the growing complexity of technical products, which currently unite mechanical, electronic and software-related components. The Systems Engineering degree programme produces qualified professionals who view themselves as "generalists" and develop solutions for challenging tasks in robotics, medical technology or automation technology.
As a systems technology engineer, you will be employed to work on challenging development projects in national or international companies. You will work to solve interesting problems in such fields as robotics, medical technology, automation technology or sensor technology.
The Bachelor programme is offered both as a full-time programme with a duration of three years, as well as a part-time programme with a minimum duration of four years. Part-time studies are designed in such a way that working while studying is supported to as great an extent as possible: For example, the timetable is designed compactly and credit may be given for professional activities.
We offer the Practice-Integrated Bachelor programme for secondary-school graduates that combines internships and lectures in a four-year model.
The Bachelor programme can be completed with the International Profile, which entails attending English-language modules and an extended stay abroad. There are also further opportunities available, such as completing an exchange semester at a partner university during the Bachelor programme. International exposure as part of a study programme improves not only career prospects but also expands cultural horizons.
Our Systems Engineering degree programme will guarantee you a high level of practical relevance. You will work on practical tasks as early as the first semester. You will benefit from the close collaboration with the following institutes and centres:
- Institute of Applied Information Technology (InIT)
- Institute of Applied Mathematics and Physics (IAMP)
- Institute of Mechanical Systems (IMES)
- Institute of Mechatronic Systems (IMS)
- Institute of Computational Physics (ICP)
- Institute of Embedded Systems (InES)
- Institute for Signal Processing and Wireless Communications (ISC)
- Centre for Product and Process Development (ZPP)
The lecturers work on interdisciplinary research and development projects in collaboration with industrial and economic partners in such fields as "robotics" and "medical systems". The results of this collaboration are directly incorporated into the teaching. In the project work and Bachelor thesis at the end of your studies, you deal independently with current topics and problems, usually in close collaboration with a company.
