Connecting the disciplines of mechanics, electronics, computer science and control engineering is the core competence of modern engineering. Thus the Mechatronics curriculum provides a broad insight into state-of-the-art methods for this interdisciplinary combination reinforced by research projects carried out at the university or in industry. Further specialization in one of the two fields of "Intelligent Systems and Robotics" or "System Design" is realized through technical electives. Individual emphases are possible due to a wide range of courses in each field. A future career is possible in a wide array of branches including aviation engineering, automotive industry, ship building, biomedical devices engineering and electronic entertainment.
Figure 1: Course structure
The program is organized as a two-year course (four semesters) which starts on 1st October each year. The first two semesters include mostly lectures and practical courses. The third and the fourth semester focus on research work where students have to complete two theses (Research Project and Master Thesis). The "Master of Science" degree will be awarded. Language of the program is English. Some of the technical electives are given in German.
All admission modalities are laid down in the Satzung über das Studium (Statutes on Studying at the TUHH).
The Module Handbook describes the concrete difinitions of a programm's modules and the educational objectives. They also give information about content, recommended precognitions and preparation literature
