The studies Mechatronics offers a practical, application-oriented academic training in the field of engineering as presence- or distance studies alongside career with the completion Bachelor of Engineering.
The standard period of study in distance learning with Saturday's lectures at many nationwide study centers DIPLOMA is 7 semesters. A campus program is available in 6 semesters at the Bad Sooden-Allendorf.
As a variation of distance learning which allows interactive DIPLOMA online lectures on the Internet. The tests of the Mechatronics study found while continuing instead to the nationwide study centers DIPLOMA. As part-time study this distance learning version offers even greater location independence and even better compatibility between studies and work, since travel time and costs are eliminated.
The Bachelor program Mechatronics offers practice- and application-oriented engineering studies on a scientific basis. A balanced mix of theory and practical tasks, foundations and special subjects, expertise and multidisciplinary knowledge forms an ideal starting point for starting a career.
By choosing one of the three elective priorities Automotive, robotics and electric mobility is possible an individual and labor-market differentiation and specialization within the study.

Distance learning: € 247.00 / month (. Total amount € 10,374.00 plus one-off examination fee of € 615.00)
Presence or distance learning. Distance learning takes place alternating between self-study with study booklets and all-day Saturday-seminars (about 12 Saturdays per semester) at one of our numerous nationwide study centers or online in "virtual auditorium" of DIPLOMA online campus.
General higher education entrance, the master craftsman examination or according to the regulation on access vocational qualifications to higher education in the state of HessenIe either end of a professional career advancement of at least 400 hours, a technical school or a professional or administrative academy or audit in a nationally recognized training occupation followed by at least 2 years of work and existence of a special university entrance examination.
More information on specific accounts granted the DIPLOMA Hochschule like on demand. Applicants / inside, which do not meet the above conditions can initially participate as an auditor in the study, if the access authorization within max. 2 semesters is achieved.
In foreign degrees equivalence for admission must be proved.
Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
Graduates obtain a Bachelor's certificate and a certificate as well as a in English authored "Diploma Supplement" and a "Transcript of Records" (Transcript of Records) that she / deport him internationally as an academic with a bachelor's degree.
The bachelor's degree program "Mechatronics" is offered in two versions, as a campus program in Bad Sooden-Allendorf or via distance learning with attendance phases at different study centers in Germany. The presence phases in distance learning will take place on Saturdays and consist of voluntary training and seminars (labs, simulations, experiments, programming exercises, theory, etc.). For all students a total of 8 days laboratory are required, which take place as a block in the central events Mechatronics Laboratory in Bad Sooden-Allendorf (with practical experiments and applications in the fields of robotics and car designs systems). For the self-study phases are available didactic study letters, a telephone hotline and a supervised e-learning learning platform with virtual labs, simulations, exercises, problem books and literature. The individual study centers offer beyond other care facilities.
The successful bachelor's degree in Mechatronics puts the graduates open a wide and interesting field of activity. Mechatronics find employment in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronics, automotive and aerospace industry, automation, robotics, microsystems and precision engineering, medical engineering, media technology etc. - Including the respective associated supply companies. Any activities of bachelor and master graduates in Mechatronics are:
- conducting and supporting tasks in the development and design of mechatronic systems

- Development, manufacture and testing of electronic and mechatronic devices
- quality assurance
- Shopping, maintenance and operation of complex systems in manufacturing and process automation
- Marketing, sales, and training of technical products and systems
- Coordinating activities and project management
- Management tasks, where multidisciplinary expertise is required
- Consultancy activities in industrial and service companies
MAIN AREAS OF STUDY
The elective focus robotics of the course Mechatronics Engineering (B.Eng.) Consists of two modules
- Robotics and programming
- Tool design for robots
In "Robotics and Programming" module-depth knowledge of robot classification, coordinate systems of the working space, control concepts, programming concepts (Teach In, playback, offline, simulation), in observance of standards, regulations and safeguards. Emphasis is placed on the application engineering, commissioning, programming and targeted troubleshooting and testing tools. The aim is to select robot according to the specific requirements of the system, to program and optimize.
In "tool design for robots" module a thorough knowledge of the parameters and characteristics of tool concepts and tools for robotic applications as well as various possibilities for the use of robotics single and complex solutions. The focus is on automatic tool changing systems. The aim is to manufacturing processes or to plan production processes from the point of optimum robot utilization and to make individual tools, such as gripper systems under manufacturing aspects.
The elective Priority Automotive Systems of the course Mechatronics Engineering (B.Eng.) Consists of two modules
- Automotive electronics
- factory simulation
In the module "Automotive Electronics" thorough knowledge of construction, use and diagnostics of functional modules and complex systems within a vehicle electrical system. The focus is targeted to methods such as FMEA. The aim of this module is to understand electronic functional modules to analyze chains of electronic functional modules, implement and optimize. The following topics are taught in detail:
- Fundamentals of automotive electrics and electronics
- Fundamentals of electronic systems in motor vehicles
- Selected electronic systems (function realization)
- FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) of electronic systems in motor vehicles
In the module "Factory Simulation" thorough knowledge of modeling and exemplary implementation of a factory simulation as planning for real production. The aim of this module is to plan ahead productions based on simulations and optimize existing production by simulation. The following topics are taught in detail:
- Fundamentals of Simulation
- factory simulation
- Realization of the simulation using the example of automotive suppliers
- Comparison of simulated a real-world system
The elective focus electromobility is concerned with the technical implementation of electric vehicles and their sustainable use. Therefore, it includes the two modules
- Design of electric vehicles
- Sustainability and Corporate Management integrated power supply
The module design of electric vehicles, the focus is on designing electric (or hybrid) drive vehicles. That includes the rich far viewing under the current battery technology, lightweight construction, vehicle systems and drive systems with a. Moreover, balancing the interpretation of vehicles with regard to the usage profiles of great importance.
In Module Sustainability and Corporate Management integrated energy supply is the effect circulation in energy management is of central importance. Only if the inclusion of renewable energies in total manage to achieve in electric mobility than conventional drive systems, a greater efficiency, the objective of sustainability can be implemented. Case studies will be highlighted in this module, which methods and potentials are possible.
