Within the first semester technical foundations will be taught, within the second students decide for one out of two specialisations: Process Automation or Robotics. Both profiles cover different mandatory and elective classes each.

The A&R program includes a high amout of laboratory work in order to enable students to gain practical experiences with modern technologies.
