What is the course all about?

The basic studies cover the technical and scientific principles of vehicle mechatronics and informatics. This basic training is supplemented by general scientific disciplines (management) and languages (technical English).

 Your specialisations in the main studies include the areas of vehicle technology and vehicle electronics (hardware, sensor technology, control units, actuator technology) as well as structure and function of on-board computers and multimedia components. Because perfect interaction between mechanical, electronic and information-processing components in a safety-related system like the vehicle is of utmost importance, the interplay of the individual components in particular is paramount, i.e. the system modelling, integration and stability.
