The coursework for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology begins with a solid foundation in the principles of engineering and IT. This knowledge is subsequently deepened through scientific and practice-oriented specialisations in automation or communication technology. The theoretical information presented in the lectures is
reinforced through work on real-world applications. In this course of study, emphasis is placed on the areas of robotics, data transmission technology and chip development. A central goal of this degree programme is to provide an understanding of the interaction of various system components and of hardware and software.
The degree of Plastics Engineering provides a practice-oriented education in engineering science focused on the field of plastics technology, from product and material development to materials processing. Great value is placed on the hands-on
training at the university’s technical center, which features the latest generation of machinery and a clean room. The curriculum is regularly adjusted to accommodate the newest advancements. Additionally, students gain substantial experience in project management by means of project work over the course of two semesters, with tasks set by industry partners.
The Bachelor’s degree programme combines an advanced study of mechanical engineering with electrical engineering, computer science and business administration. Following basic studies in mathematics and natural sciences, students select one of the two specialist fields, construction and development or production engineering.
The Mechatronics course of studies is composed of elements from classical mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics and information engineering. The Rosenheim model optimally intertwines theory with industrial practice, with each of the seven semesters beginning with a three-month-long theoretical block, followed by a practical section with a partner in industry. Over the course of these alternating theoretical and practical modules, students learn to comprehend and develop technical products and production equipment. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to gain insight into the interconnection of economic and organisational aspects in this sector.
Applied Research and Development (M.Sc.)
The focus of this Master’s Programme lies in the active participation of students in current research projects of Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences. During their project work they get individual support by a professor being the mentor of the project. Creative young academics in research may select their curriculum from the broad range of the faculty of engineering and thereby set individual priorities. Graduates of the Master’s programme score with their capacity for independent scientific work and experience in the implementation of industrial research and development projects. The career opportunities are excellent.
Technology shapes our lives – it develops at a breath-taking pace, it poses increasingly complex challenges and offers almost unlimited career opportunities. In order to meet the great demand for skilled specialist and management staff, Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences devised the application-focused Master’s Degree Programme in Engineering with lectures conducted in English. By advancing and specialising knowledge acquired at Bachelor level, as well as offering a wide variety of interdisciplinary content, this course prepares students for demanding engineering activities as well as a fast track into project and leadership responsibility, primarily in international companies.
