Special features regarding teachingBachelor’s degree students in mechatronics can focus on mechanical engineering from the 3rd semester onwards. The first two semesters in Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering are identical. From the 3rd semester onwards, the number of courses on offer increases with each semester. Lots of project-related courses! The master's degree offers a wide range of options for specialisation and interdisciplinary contextual studies. The three specialisations span across 3 semesters and each is worth 6 ECTS credits per semester. 12 ECTS credits must be selected from the contextual studies in two semesters.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe 5th semester of the bachelor’s degree can be attended at another university; with excellent organisational support provided by the International Office and subject-specific support by the degree course management. The 5th semester is organised like an elective semester. This means that students on an exchange semester do not have to attend the same type of course modules but rather have options within a defined framework. On the Master's course: Double Degree Programme with the University of Agder in Norway.
Special features regarding the equipmentmLab equipment for material and damage testing, workpiece measurement (mechan. a. opt.); Milling, turning, laser processing; eLab fully equipped training workstations (with PC, function generators, el. measuring equipment, oscilloscope, SPS; all equipment is networked; measuring stations); Measuring and testing equipment (electr., magn., acoustic, thermal); Software for measurement, control, regulation; Simulation, electr. design and programming; Complete production of el. circuit boards; aLab industrial robot systems, mobile robots, measuring systems (electr., mechan., opt.); Labs can be used by students outside formal study.
Support for foundersThe startupstube at the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences brings together students of different disciplines and supports them during the start-up process; it also serves as a meeting point, both virtually and physically. It provides links to its regional and international partners through access to industrial partners, venture capital companies, legal advice, funding, etc. The support takes the form of individual mentoring, IT infrastructure and access to the labs, depending on the maturity level of the project.
Other special featuresNo tuition fees (as at 2021/22). Good corporate network. Outstanding infrastructure (library, canteen, IT service, etc.).
