Bachelor of Science

Mechatronics Systems

The Mechatronics degree programme combines three engineering sciences: Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. The aim is to develop intelligent machines, devices or applications that can perform tasks independently. We focus on the topics of artificial intelligence and systems engineering.

Study details

More and more machines and systems are automated and act intelligently in one way or another: robots sort goods independently in the factory, cars automatically reduce bumps or other disturbances from the road and sat navs reliably guide you from A to B. During your studies, you will learn how mechanical and electronic elements work together and can be controlled by IT. You will learn how Mechatronics systems are designed and developed, how they are programmed, tested and put into operation. The basics of mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mechanics are just as much a part of the degree programme as knowledge of project management, measurement and control technology, robotics, automation and vehicle technology.

Your career opportunities

After completing your Bachelor's degree in Mechatronics Systems, you will have excellent career prospects! Small, medium-sized and large companies employ Mechatronics engineers: For example, as a project manager, test engineer or development engineer.


Studying at the Velbert/ Heiligenhaus campus

Small but mighty: studying at the Velbert/ Heiligenhaus campus (CVH) is something very special. Around 400 STEM-enthusiastic students are enrolled. The study groups are small, we know each other and the lecturers can support you individually during your studies. Our building was built in 2017. The laboratories are new and well-equipped with the latest technology, which our students are also allowed to use. We attach great importance to the practical relevance of our degree programme. We are also particularly proud of our research activities. Several CVH professors are members of the NRW doctoral programme. This is why you can also do a doctorate at CVH after completing your Master's degree.


What our students say


"The Velbert/Heiligenhaus campus has super modern facilities. I couldn't imagine a better environment for studying engineering."

Thomas Atea, student


"I'm doing a dual study programme at Tünkers in Ratingen. Here I can get to know the practical side of the company, make contacts and gain valuable work experience while I'm still studying."

Janine Sawer, student
