Mechatronics (Bachelor)

Are you interested in modern computer-aided technical systems such as industrial robots, digital cameras, laser scalpels or automotive systems? If you are, then the BEng Mechatronics is the right degree programme for you. Here you will be combining programmable electronic components which operate in synergy with mechanical systems. You will find that a BEng qualification can be the key to a wide variety of career opportunities.

Mechatronics engineers – women and men alike – are in great demand! The OTH Regensburg offers this state-of-the-art degree programme in Mechatronics with small study groups and close proximity to lecturers and OTH Regensburg teaching staff. We set great store on applying the theories learned in the classroom to practical laboratory experiments, thereby significantly improving students’ understanding and appreciation of engineering.

As a student, you will be working alongside OTH Regensburg students and staff on actual research and development projects in the faculty’s research centres (for example, the Mechatronics Research Unit).


Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary subject, a fusion of electronics, mechanical engineering and computer science into a coherent engineering science. Great emphasis is placed on educating systems-orientated thought processes. This is important when we consider that modern technical devices and equipment consist primarily of programmable electronic controllers which are directly integrated into electromechanical systems.

Typical mechatronic products include autonomous robotics, automotive safety systems (e. g. ABS or car cruise control) or intelligent automation systems.
