Description of course of studies

Students interested in natural sciences and technology have the opportunity to choose the Master’s course of study in Mechatronics and Information Technology. The research-oriented focus of this course of study aims to explore the theoretical contexts of the complex Mechatronics and Information Technology specialty division as a whole. A specialization in technical knowledge, scientific methods and application scenarios allows students to work in fields with a stronger scientific focus, as well as further developing and designing their own areas of activity on an independent basis.

In particular, the course of study teaches an understanding of cross-references and encourages critical reflection on the issues and methodologies of the specialty divisions; it also focuses on a responsible, integrated abstraction of the application area for Mechatronics and Information Technology. An important goal in teaching these skills is to increase students’ readiness for socially responsible engineering work.

The course of study is designed and offered jointly with the Faculty for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and the Faculty for Computer Science, and represents an ideal combination of application-oriented mechanical engineering and modern information technology.

Application and admission



Application period for winter semester: 01.04. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.11. – 31.12.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.

You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 31.12. for summer semester.

You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.

Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
