Automation and Robotics


The Anglophone master’s program in covers all important fields of the Faculties of Mathematics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering as well as Biological and Chemical Engineering. Lectures and laboratories are directly involved in research projects at the Robotics Research Institute (IRF) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) so that a highly topical curriculum is guaranteed.

During the first semester, the technical fundamentals are imparted. In their second semester, students opt for one of the two specializations Process Automation and Robotics. Both profiles encompass different compulsory and elective subjects of all participating disciplines. In addition to the technical lectures soft skills trainings are offered, furthering in particular your communicative competence and your project management abilities.

The A&R program consists largely of laboratory work to provide students with practical experiences in up-to-date technology.


Job Profile

The automation of numerous processes is one of the major revolutions shaping our present times. Robots are substantial parts of modern production sites and are considered the next evolutionary stage supporting humans in their private life and at work. Automation and control engineering are synonyms for innovative technologies applied mainly in development, production and transport systems.

Robotic engineers deal with the design, handling, maintenance and upgrading of complex automation systems and implement these in the economy. They work in reseach and development, design and production in many different contexts such as the automotive, chemical and aerospace industry.
