Qualification Profile and Skills

The Bachelor's Programme Mechatronics is a joint study programme of the University of Innsbruck and the UMIT TIROL. Mechatronics combines all approaches and techniques to develop systems, procedures, devices and products where the essential characteristics are to be achieved by the integration and interaction of mechanical, electronic and information-processing components. By integrating the methods and techniques from the formerly independent technical disciplines, the development of modern systems with a high degree of functionality, efficiency and performance is made possible. The synthesis of the engineering disciplines mechanical engineering, electric engineering and computer science, which is also based on the natural science disciplines mathematics, physics, and chemistry, reflects interdisciplinary technological challenge in modern process and equipment technology and is a key motor of present and future product innovation.    

In order to meet the high requirements of the bachelor's programme, natural scientific as well as engineering competences are developed and promoted with the university training. Moreover, particular importance is attached to the development of social competence due to the interdisciplinarity of the study programme. 

Expected Learning Outcomes

Graduates are able to elaborate, evaluate and implement scientific developments in the core fields of mechatronics and to apply them in interdisciplinary contexts. They possess scientifically well-founded theoretical and methodical problem-solving skills in order to apply, after a short introductory period, different fields of mechatronics and mechatronics-related fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering in industrial and trade companies.

Future Prospects: Occupational Profiles and Career Opportunities

The career fields of graduates of the Bachelor's Programme Mechatronics cover a wide range of activities. Based on their university training, they are in particular qualified, after a short introductory period, to actively take part in different fields of mechatronics and mechatronics-related fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering in industrial and trade companies. Graduates of the Bachelor's Programme Mechatronics are also prepared for a relevant master's programme.

Postgraduate and further Studies at the University of Innsbruck

Supplementary Programme

Within the scope of the Study Programme, a Supplementary Programme corresponding to 60 ECTS-Credits may be passed. Admission to the Supplementary Programme requires the admission to or the having passed of one of the selected Study Programmes. Detailed information:

Description of the applied grading system (including the grade distribution table) »

The grade distribution table is a statistical representation of the distribution of all successfully completed examinations in a given programme of study or subject (based on all registered students for the programme or subject). The grade distribution table is updated in regular intervals.

Austrian grading
Outstanding performance
TAB = 100%


Generally good, but with some errors
Generally sound work with a number of substantial errors
Performance meets the minimum criteria
Substantial improvement necessary; requirement of further work
