A Degree Program with a Future

Type of Study

The departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics offer this interdisciplinary degree program as a cooperation. 


Bachelor’s or similar degree in electrical engineering, mechatronics or mechanical engineering, or a closely linked degree program with an overall grade of 2.5 or better.
If the student did not achieve this overall grade, the admission committee can determine that, instead of admission based on a qualified degree, the student is eligible for admission if the overall application indicates from a technical standpoint that the student will be able to successfully complete the master’s program. The admission committee will conduct a personal interview with the applicant for this purpose. Possibility of admission based on a prior degree in another field upon request.

Acquired Knowledge and Skills

As a graduate of our degree program, you will research and analyze intelligent solutions for increasingly complex tasks. To do so,

  • you will gain thorough theoretical basic training, and will be able to apply your knowledge creatively across multiple disciplines
  • you will design, research, and evaluate a broad spectrum of mechatronics applications and systems
  • you will also have expertise in the areas of management and innovation strategies which you have applied in the course of a research project and subsequent master thesis
Job Profiles

As a graduate, you will have diverse career prospects in the following areas:

  • Project or team leadership
  • Interfaces between electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science
  • Variable professional fields domestically and abroad in almost all industrial areas, such as automation technology, automotive construction, tooling machine construction, plant engineering, drive technology, energy technology, traffic engineering, medical technology and production technology
Cooperation With Companies

We integrate current knowledge from professional practice directly into our coursework through a range of cooperations. We cooperate with regional and national companies in fields such as

  • engineering
  • automation technology
  • drive technology in research and development projects, including through the it's OWL cluster
Research in the Department

The Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics stand out in particular for their strong research focus. We carry out a wide range of application-oriented and fundamental research projects, and participate in national and international research programs.

As a student, you can participate in a variety of ways: we integrate research content into coursework, integrate you as a student into the active work of research groups early on, and deal with some research content in the framework of theses.

Studying at Innovation Campus Lemgo

Our Innovation Campus in Lemgo

At the Innovation Campus in Lemgo, you will study at one of the most exciting technology locations in NRW. Here you will find state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching rooms as well as science-to-business factories. For example, the Centrum Industrial IT, in which companies from all over East Westphalia-Lippe (OWL) have their branches. Or the Smart Factory OWL, which showcases data and AI management. In the Future Food Factory OWL, which is unique in Europe, something similar is happening in relation to food production. New work and transfer meet at InnovationSPIN. Here, TH OWL, the district administration and the skilled trades demonstrate transparent cooperation and a spirit that allows new things to emerge. In addition to Fraunhofer IOSB-INA, the campus is also home to two vocational schools and the national handball league team TBV Lemgo-Lippe. And best of all, the campus also has student residence halls with short distances to the university and the city.
