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 Human 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.)

Duration: 3 semesters (18 months)

Start: October (winter semester)

Location: Deggendorf

Taught in: English

Application period: 15 April - 15 July

Admission requirements:

  • A completed undergraduate degree from a domestic or foreign university with at least 210 ECTS credits from the fields of industrial engineering, technical physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics or a degree that is equivalent to such a university degree. The examination board decides on the equivalence of the degrees.
  • Applicants must pass an assessment test, containing complex tasks of higher mathematics for engineers as well as on questions from the fields of physics, computer science, electrical engineering, systems theory and control engineering. This written admission test, offered online as well as at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, is used to determine the suitability for the specific study programme and thus ultimately decides on admission to the Master's programme. See sample test questions.
  • If English is not the native language, certified knowledge of the English language must be provided. If German is not the native language, certified knowledge of the German language must be provided. See language requirements.
  • Admission is defined in the study and examination regulations (§3 Qualification for the degree programme, § 4 Proof of missing ECTS points, § 5 Proof of degree programme-specific aptitude).

CHE University Ranking 2021/2022: The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics is in the top group in the area of "Practical Relevance".

career prospects

In the near future, intelligent, self-controlling, sensor-supported and networked production systems will enable almost self-organized 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, digitization and robotics has an enormous Bandwidth, and development is progressing at breath-taking 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.
