In addition to Computer Science-related contents, methods of scientific work, principles of Business Administration and English as well as presentation techniques are taught.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe degree course in Smart Automation is part of the Chinese-German University of Applied Sciences. Through the specialisation in Mechatronics, incoming and outgoing students can acquire a dual degree course with Tongji University in Shanghai. This takes place through a one-year stay abroad in the respective host country. In the first semester technical skills are acquired and in the second semester the Bachelor's work placement is completed or the Bachelor's thesis written.
