The consecutive Master's programme enables Bachelor's graduates in mechatronics and other related fields of study to deepen their knowledge and understanding of networked systems in digital production. Modern simulation systems, cooperative and autonomous systems, innovative man-machine interfaces and additive manufacturing processes are dealt with in four technologically oriented study units. Two interdisciplinary study units allow the treatment of specific application fields of cyber-physical systems as well as the topic of functional safety of software-based control and automation systems.
Degree: Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

In the near future, intelligent, self-controlling, sensor-supported and networked production systems will enable almost self-organised production in the "Smart Factory". In addition to this Industrial Internet of Things (IOT), robots on the other side of the spectrum are even gradually beginning to conquer social areas: Many surgical procedures are already robot-assisted today, and even in the care sector, attempts are being made to make measures technically more effective or to replace missing skilled personnel with robots. The field of automation, digitalisation and robotics has an enormous bandwidth, and development is progressing at breathtaking speed.
What influence will megatopics such as virtual/augmented reality, autonomous driving or ambient assisted living have on our future lives? The demand for qualified personnel will increase continuously over the next few years. Expert knowledge is more in demand than ever. Creative ideas can be the answer to these questions and needs - as master mechatronic and cyber-physical systems.
Increasing digitalisation is changing the way we work and creating new professions. The Master's programme in Mechatronic and Cyber-physical Systems conveys exactly the knowledge that is needed to be not only a part of this changing professional world, but someone who is actively involved in shaping it.
