Study objectives

Automation Technology is a cross-sectional technology used in almost all technical fields, including medical and automotive engineering, traffic management, machine and plant construction, and aerospace. The engineer’s task is to design efficient and effective production chains in order to provide end customers with products that have a high degree of integrated functionality.

The Automation Technology Bachelor’s degree programme primarily focuses on the design of individual components in automated products, rather than on complete assembly lines. Design and technical training receive equal attention as well as time spent looking at micro and macro level issues in production technology. We will focus on novel automated components and products.

Graduates are thoroughly prepared for a career in this demanding, modern and sustainable field. They are provided with professional and to some extent leadership skills at the bachelor’s level. Independence, holistic thinking in technical and business contexts, teamwork abilities and social skills play a key role here.
