Robotics* - the future has already begun!

Trend-setting innovative robot technology

Robotics characterizes the current and future trends of flexible production as an essential element of Industry 4.0. In addition, it is essential for mobile autonomous systems as an alternative for transport and services and necessary for developments of technical innovations in the medical field.

This offers a wide range of opportunities for innovation and value creation in growing areas of business and industry. Therefore, a high degree of understanding of the functions of complex, networked autonomous robots is required.

Personal technical competence in the conception, implementation and optimization of robot systems in real environments is the essential success factor.

Interdisciplinary high-tech degree programme

The degree programme pursues an interdisciplinary approach offering broad technical education at a high academic level in the fields of robotics, computer science, mechanics, electrical engineering, mathematics and modern production.

Future-oriented topics like automation technology, image processing and object recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence are in the focus of the academic education.

This enables students to carry out the conception, modelling, simulation, programming, visualization, implementation and optimization of complex robot systems.

The degree Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSc) qualifies for a continuative master degree programme in robotics or related fields.
