Make more of your skills! Combine your training as a mechatronics technician with the perfect degree program.

Within just four years, you will be trained by our partners to become a mechatronics technician and, at the same time, earn your engineering degree at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences. With the combination of theory and practice, you will receive a perfectly rounded professional and academic education that will give you great advantages in your professional life.

In the Electrical Engineering-Automation degree program, you will specialize in mechatronics. This means that during your studies and training you will build up knowledge in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science.

Our industry-experienced professors and lecturers teach you the necessary knowledge about sensors, robotics, CAD techniques, hydraulics, etc. individually. With their many years of professional experience, they prepare you in small groups specifically for your professional life as an engineer.

Career prospects

Whether in vehicle construction, mechanical engineering, or with renowned subcontractors and suppliers - Germany's industry is desperately looking for qualified electrical engineering specialists.

Because technology is becoming increasingly complex, engineers of the future need comprehensive knowledge. With the mechatronics specialization, you will become a sought-after multi-talent with an overview of the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science. And you will gain additional advantages:

  • Through the parallel training, you will gain even more insights into professional practice than is possible with just studies alone.
  • With the mechatronics technician degree and the Bachelor of Engineering degree, you obtain two state-recognized qualifications in the shortest possible time: If you were to complete your training and studies one after the other, you would generally need six and a half years instead of four.
  • Your training company can hire you directly after graduation, because they already know you and what you can do.


Eight semesters of dual study means six semesters at university and two complete semesters in the company.

What you should consider before deciding on a dual study program: You need a lot of motivation. Traditional full-time students use the lecture-free period to go on an internship or simply laze around. If you are studying dual studies, you will be working at your training company or completing your vocational training during this time.

A dual study program is therefore more intensive, because you work and study at the same time. Of course, this has advantages: Others have to get a part-time job to support their studies, but you get a training salary. Whereas at some universities hundreds sit in a lecture hall, with us you learn in small seminar groups. And because you gain a lot of practical experience in the training company, it can be much easier for you to learn the theory for the exams.
