Automation Technology

Automation technology works at the interface between electronics, informatics, mechanical engineering and business. The challenge when automating technical processes is to produce an optimum mix between mostly conflicting aspects of time, cost, quality, resources and the environment. Here it is important to consider the whole system instead of optimising individual components independently from one another. Modular solutions are therefore becoming increasingly important.

Bachelor Degree Programme in Automation Technology

A passion for engineering and technology

Without on-going improvements in automation, company successes would have failed to materialise a long time ago. The development of highly automated equipment, plants and machines not only leads to increased productivity and quality, but also to economic growth. It is therefore essential to view a system as a whole rather than to optimise individual components independently of one another. Ever-growing challenges facing automation technology require experts that connect electronics, informatics and mechanical engineering. In order to meet these demands, this degree programme will equip you with the best qualifications.

Smart Studies – study smart

The relevance of automation technology in everyday life is well-known. Digitalisation forms the basis of everything, not only in industry, but also in private life.The Bachelor Degree Programme in Smart Automation is focussed on these topics known by the umbrella term “Industry 4.0”. Industry 4.0 encompasses the digitalisation of internal and external company value chains as well as product and service offerings and entire business models, all of which are thus revolutionised by it. Furthermore, individual customer requirements are to be realised with serially produced products, optimised decisions are to be made in flexible business and engineering processes, and resource productivity and efficiency are to be increased.


Master Degree Programme in Automation Technology – Business

Automation leadership: Technology and management lead to success

Countless companies in a wide variety of sectors have already recognised that automation technology is a key success factor, which is why demand is greater than ever before. The challenge when automating processes is to produce an optimum mix between mostly conflicting aspects of time, cost, quality, resources and the environment. Here it is important to recognise correlations, to select the appropriate technologies, and most of all to make visionary decisions.

The Master degree programme trains senior managers for the industry. The objective is for them to independently lead management and/or development tasks in companies active both at home and abroad. Students learn the necessary problem-solving skills in new and existing fields and hone their ability to master complex technical, business and social challenges. Compulsory elective subjects in the areas of business and technology enable further specialisation.



Specialist Fields

Course units at CAMPUS 02 are divided into separate specialist fields. A coordinator each is assigned to a field and is responsible for supporting and relieving the Head of the Degree Programme’s teaching and examination activities.

Find more information on our specialist fields here.


The Captains of the Degree Programme in Automation Technology play a particularly important role in the network. Since they are active in successful companies in the automation sector, they act as mentors and contact persons for our students.

Find more information on our Captains here.

Accompanying Projects

Accompanying Projects is a 3-semester course unit that begins in the 3rd semester. In teams, students choose (or are given by their supervisor) a project task that is usually fulfilled within one semester. The tasks include typical issues in automation technology.
