Career Prospects

Vast Field of Opportunities

Developing algorithms for robots

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering. Due to their systematic and interdisciplinary approach mechatronics engineers are best suitable for a wide variety of jobs such as:

  • Research and development (R&D)
  • Hardware and software design
  • Product development
  • Planning, execution and management of engineering projects
  • Installation, testing and commissioning of industrial equipment
  • Quality control
  • Marketing
  • Customer care
  • Consulting

Potential Employers

Programming the assembly line

The career opportunities are very bright. Potential employers are companies from various industrial sectors like:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Robotics
  • Manufacturing
  • Material processing
  • Energy systems
  • Drives
  • Printing
  • Medical systems
  • Consumer products.

The Leading Edge

The multidisciplinary competencies of mechatronics engineers enable them to assume coordination and leading jobs in project teams involving engineers of other disciplines like electrical, mechanical and software engineering. The study programme at FHWS is highly practical. The interaction of students with the industry, during the internship and the bachelor’s thesis, normally paves the path to a fascinating career in a national or multinational company.

“In Germany, engineers belong to the groups with top incomes”, reveal the studies carried out by the Hans-Böckler-Stiftung and VDI nachrichten. The engineers are generally more satisfied with their profession than other university graduates.
