Systems Engineering is a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary engineering degree programme that fuses the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science. Networking, digitalisation, IT security and internationalisation are major buzzwords associated with Industry 4.0., and the key positions related to these processes will need to be staffed in the future by people who think outside the box and can work in networks. Project-based lectures are used to directly apply newly gained knowledge to practice.
The basic principles and orientation stage covers engineering mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, measuring technology, physics, mechanics, material studies and design, with four applications-focused projects expanding and practising students’ specialist and interdisciplinary skills. During the advanced stage , students take 6 major, interdisciplinary modules in robotics/automation engineering, embedded systems, intelligent/distributed systems, project management and operations management. The final stage covers basic principles of business administration and English together with the bachelor’s thesis.
The degree programme can be completed in different formats. Depending on the chosen format, the degree programme takes between six and eleven semesters to complete.
The degree programme in Systems Engineering is run jointly by Augsburg, Kempten and Neu-Ulm universities of applied sciences to harness the combined benefits of eLearning and studying close to home. A range of eLearning provisions offer structured guidance prior to and following on from face-to-face classes. Lectures are held at the HE Hub in Memmingen.
Applications for the degree programme in Systems Engineering should be submitted online via the applicants portal managed by Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. Students on the joint degree programme are automatically also enrolled with Kempten University of Applied Sciences upon completion of the process at Augsburg.
Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.)
part-time, part-time professional, dual, full-time
6-11 semesters, depending on the study format
The foundation course provides broadly based training in the fundamental principles of engineering science, also focusing heavily on key interdisciplinary skills. These two years are spent studying general engineering in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
After progressing to the advanced course, you will expand your knowledge of networked technical systems and work on aspects of the subject areas
Students complete their practical semester during the subsequent practical stage (this is recognised in part-time format), which includes practical support modules and the bachelor’s thesis.
Upon successfully completing the programme, the university of applied sciences will award you the academic degree of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.).
Networking, digitalisation, individualisation and internationalisation are the key terms associated with Industry 4.0. Pivotal positions in future production processes will call for staff who look beyond the horizon, possess expertise in information technology and engineering, and can use this across networks. The degree programme in Systems Engineering enables you to work on and look after continuously developing complex technical systems in production environments.
Graduate systems engineers are in very high demand across a broad range of sectors right now, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Businesses engaged in national and international development and manufacturing, e.g. automation engineering, robotics, automotive construction, aerospace and medical technology, are increasingly looking for engineers with a broad interdisciplinary educational background. Demand is growing particularly steeply in electrotechnology, IT and system technology. Even in the fields of corporate consultancy and project management, we see interdisciplinary engineering moving to the fore. These trends generate excellent opportunities for you in the regional and global labour markets alike.
Fields of activity:
Applications to study Systems Engineering should be submitted online via the applicants portal managed by Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. Once you have been accepted and have enrolled formally as a student, you will automatically also be registered at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. You will study at the University of Applied Sciences hub in Memmingen. You can find out more about how to apply online at hs-augsburg.de/bewerbung.
Besides the general university entrance certificate, advanced technical college certificate, subject-specific university entrance certificate, technicians’, master craftspersons’ or vocational qualifications, it is an advantage to have a company workplace. It goes without saying that we will happily assist you in finding a suitable host company:
If your company hasn’t yet joined the scheme, that’s no problem! Please feel free to contact Rebecca Koch in absolute confidence.
We ascribe to the values of openness, tolerance and acceptance. Our aim is to teach everyone studying at Kempten University of Applied Sciences about education in an international context.
