Mechatronics is a field of engineering that builds upon and links the classic areas of mechanics, electronics and computer sciences. This interdisciplinary integration of diverse disciplines is constantly strengthened. Just about every technology product of our times comprises a mechatronic system – even products in our everyday lives contain both mechanical parts and electronic parts and are controlled by software.
The science of intelligent machines: "The whole is more than just the sum of the parts". This is a good description for the field of mechatronics. Once you have gotten to know the analytical world of a mechatronics engineer, you are unlikely to lose the fascination for this exciting field.
Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) is one of the most research-intensive universities of applied sciences in Austria. Studies and research are closely linked at FH Vorarlberg.
