Welcome to the Webpage of the Bachelor’s Degree Programme Mechatronics (IMC)

This is an undergraduate engineering programme focusing international students offered in English. If you are interested in studying Mechatronics in German then please go to the webpage of our German degree programme Mechatronik.

The German and English courses are the same, with a few exceptions. Beginning with the first semester, students are offered the opportunity to complete individual studies and exams in the parallel module of the other language and hereby acquire a twin certificate.


The "Twin Bachelor Degree Programme" offers students of the degree programmes Mechatronik/Mechatronics the possibility to switch between content of the same German and English language bachelor degree programmes and provides a combination of professional, cultural and linguistic competencies with the aim of strengthening internationalisation.

Students can obtain a twin certificate together with their bachelor's diploma, which they can attach to their application documents and show the future employers that they are able to work in multicultural project teams, deliver results in both German and English, and are able to navigate in an international environment. You will receive a bilingual degree by participating.

Among the official publications, you will find the articles of association on the acquisition of a twin certificate in a twin degree programme as PDF (No. 2018-2).

This webpage aims to provide general information about the engineering decipline Mechatronics with a brief description of career prospects for mechatronics engineers and salient features of the degree programme offered by FHWS.

The section Studies contains curricular information for current students, whereas our prospective students may find useful infomation about admission requirements and application procedure in section Admissions. A short overview of the Programme and important contacts are also given in that section.
