Do you want to have a hand in shaping the future? Help drive forward intelligent automation in one of today’s key technologies? Develop groundbreaking applications to set new standards, for instance in service and maintenance? Then our bachelor’s degree programme in Robotics will be right up your street.

In an absolute first for Germany, we have joined forces with the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt to offer this degree programme combining applied computer science with engineering. You will learn about and understand the networked systems behind robots. You can implement your ideas for creating a new kind of world in an innovative and quickly growing technological environment.

Program structure

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 the 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.

Dual study

    1. Programme with extended practice – practical and flexible!
The programme with extended practice combines a regular bachelor’s degree programme at the university with intensive practical placements relating to your academic subject matter with one of our partners. Students can select this “sandwich” option until semester 4.
    2. Combined programme – study and train at the same time!
A combined programme enables you to gain a fully accredited vocational qualification while you are studying for your bachelor’s degree – a particularly appealing advantage for many companies!
We offer the following combined vocational tracks as part of the degree programme in Robotics at Kempten University of Applied Sciences:

  • Mechatronics engineer

You can find further information about “university dual” on our website.


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.

Application and approval

Launch date: Winter Semester 2020/21. Further information to follow.

International info

We ascribe to the values of openness, tolerance and acceptance. Our aim is to teach everyone involved at Kempten University of Applied Sciences about education in an international context. As part of this, we support university-wide, inter-faculty measures to promote international projects and cross-cultural interaction.

A collaboration with Shenzhen Technology University is in the pipeline, which will also run a degree programme in Robotics covering similar subject matter.
