You know how important robotics are as a key technology right now for tomorrow’s world. New smart applications will improve our lives, or even set entirely new standards, for instance in terms of service and care. Here’s your chance to implement your ideas in this innovative and quickly growing technological environment to influence the future.

You will learn about and understand the networked systems behind robots. Complex robotic systems in both industry and the service sector can only be achieved by linking engineering sciences with applied computer science – and that’s right where you come in.

Details about this course

On the basis of core STEM subjects comprising modules in mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanics and the like, we will teach you the essentials of engineering combined with computer science. The firm focus throughout is on the application of knowledge. This is reflected in the high proportion of projects from the second semester on, giving you the chance to consolidate the theoretical subjects you’ve covered and and apply your acquired knowledge hands-on.

During the fourth and sixth semesters, you get to choose to compulsory elective modules that best suit your special interests, in which key aspects of applied computer science such as artificial intelligence and image processing come to the fore. The fifth semester is spent on your industrial placement, before majoring in either industrial robotics or geriatronics in the sixth. The seventh, and final, semester is devoted to writing your final thesis to qualify as a Bachelor of Engineering.

Incidentally, the collaboration arrangement with UAS Würzburg-Schweinfurt makes it possible to choose an alternative major during the 6th semester.


The digital revolution in manufacturing (aka “Industry 4.0” in Germany) and emergence of components with artificial intelligence (AI) have caused the demand for robots to skyrocket, in turn generating heavy long-term demand for academically trained robotics engineers. Besides careers directly in robotics, this degree programme also prepares you for interdisciplinary roles in computer science and electrical or mechanical engineering.

Programme with extended practice

Would you like to combine study and practice? With pleasure! The Kempten University of Applied Sciences offers you the following opportunity to study with more practice:

  1. Studies with in-depth practice practical and flexible!
    In the study programme with in-depth practice, a regular Bachelor's programme at the university is combined with intensive practical phases at a practice partner, based on the study content. Students can enter this study option up to the 4th semester.
  2. Combined studies a practical combination of study and work!
    With a combined study programme, you can acquire a fully recognised vocational qualification within your Bachelor's degree. This double qualification is particularly attractive for many companies!

You can find more information about the offers here.
