Master Mechatronics [M.Sc.]

  • international course
  • English spoken
  • starting every winter semester
Mechatronics

Our Master's program is designed as a full-time study course with a duration of 3 semesters. The program starts every the winter semester. The medium of instruction is English. At the beginning of the course, an individual timetable is worked out together with all students, which takes into account the content of the courses completed so far. This strategy is pursued further with the lecture Advanced Mathematics, which provides both a solid foundation and important tools for the further course of study.

The brains of many mechatronic systems are embedded systems, which are mainly dealt with in the second semester. Relevant topics in electrical engineering, such as sensors and actuators, power electronics and electrical drives, are also covered. The simulation and integration of mechatronic systems, as well as their regulation and control, are the subject of further lectures due to their high relevance.

Within the framework of the Scientific Project, students work on their own projects - independently and in international teams. In the third semester, the Master Thesis is completed, often in regional and national industrial companies.

Administration fee

Each semester all students are required to pay an administration fee. It is due upon enrolment or at any re-registration for a following semester.

Fee Amount

Tuition fees for international students or for a second degree

In Baden-Württemberg, international students (non-EU citizens) and students who are taking up a second degree have to pay a tuition fee since the winter semester 2017/2018.  The tuition fee must be paid each semester in addition to the administration fee.

In some cases there are exception from the obligation to pay tuition fees. Before enrolment, applicants from non-EU countries or applicants for a second degree course will receive a form to assess whether the obligation to pay tuition fees actually applies to them or not.

The fees for the first semester have to be paid from abroad before enrolment, but after your visa approval.

The exact amount of fees and more detailed information can be found under Finances.

Please note, that the Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences does not award any scholarships. For further information about scholarships, please also visit our Finances Website.
