Dual integrated studies – Mechatronics

The mechatonics course represents an interface between mechanical engineering and electronics. As a mechatronics technician, you program and install mechatronic systems, and work on the latest machines and state-of-the-art robots.

Mechatronics course at KUKA

Mechatronics technicians are encountered at KUKA above all on the large machines and robots. They assemble complex mechatronic systems comprising all kinds of components – electrical, electronic and mechanical. These also include electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic control systems. They manufacture the components themselves.

What is more, the mechatronics technicians look after the associated hardware and software: for example, they program the software for systems and install it.

The dual integrated studies in mechatronics concentrate on the following areas of learning:

  • Machining mechanical parts and linking components
  • Installing and testing hardware and software components
  • Assembling and testing electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic control systems
  • Programming and commissioning mechatronic systems

Duration of the dual (integrated) studies in mechatronics and qualification

KUKA offers the dual studies in mechatronics at three sites – Augsburg, Bremen and Obernburg.
The Augsburg and Bremen sites offer the mechatronics course as a dual integrated studies program, while Obernburg offers a 3-year dual studies course.

Augsburg:

On successful graduation after 4.5 years, you will be a trained mechatronics technician (CIC) and receive the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) qualification from Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. The course is held in cooperation with the vocational school Berufsschule I and Augsburg University of Applied Sciences.

What this means for you: both your practical work placements at KUKA and your teaching and lectures take place in Augsburg.

Bremen:

On successful graduation after 4 years, you will be a trained mechatronics technician (CC) and receive the Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) qualification from Bremen University of Applied Sciences. The course is held in cooperation with the Bremen Chamber of Commerce and Bremen University of Applied Sciences.

What this means for you: both your practical work placements at KUKA and your teaching and lectures take place in Bremen.

 

Obernburg:

On successful graduation after 3 years, you will receive the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) qualification from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW). The course is held in cooperation with the DHBW in Mosbach.
