Mechatronics – Study with a Future!

Mechatronics is an engineering science that offers a variety of exciting challenges. The multidisciplinary combination of fields as diverse as mechanical engineering, electronics and computer science generates a system that is increasingly more compact and smaller. Mechatronics is increasing found in all areas of everyday life. The MSc programme in Mechatronics offers in–depth scientific training and places special emphasis on modelling, analysis, simulation and realisation of mechatronic systems. By choosing three of the five specialisations when you begin your programme, you will be fully immersed in the world of electronics, mechanical engineering and mechatronics.

In cooperation with the University of Agder, Faculty of Engineering and Science in Grimstad (Norway), FH Vorarlberg offers you a two-year "double degree programme" comprising 120 ECTS. After completing the programme, you receive the Master of Science degree from both universities.
