  • Special features regarding teaching
    The possibility of a specialisation in "Technical Editing" and "User Experience" is offered in which engineers are trained not only to develop but also to be able to explain intelligent Mechatronics systems (https://www.hs-aalen.de/de/courses/49); Possibility of a condensed degree course "Compact Mechatronics through recognition" for graduates of technical schools (https://www.hs-aalen.de/de/courses/34); Close interdisciplinary cooperation in teaching with the degree course in Engineering Education (https://www.hs-aalen.de/de/courses/18); A "true" Mechatronics programme with interdisciplinary links.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    There are flexible options for structuring the degree course internationally. In addition to English-language lectures, the practical semester and the Bachelor's thesis can be completed abroad. The 6th semester is completely reserved for the study abroad (with recognition of credits). An English-language semester in "Optoelectronics Mechatronics" is offered for international students.
