Welcome to the Department of Mechatronics!

Your car is a prime example that Mechatronics is now an indispensable part of our everyday lives. From combustion engine controls to automatic gear shifting and automatic distance control using radar waves, these are all a part of studying mechatronics.

We experience strong advancement in developing modern devices, machines and systems when we bring mechanics, electrics, electronics and software together.

Students in the Mechatronics degree program at the JKU focus on a sound, base-knowledge education and can apply acquired skills and knowledge to solve real-world problems as part of their Bachelor's or Master's thesis. The program is challenging, covering a wide range of subject areas in the field of mechatronics. Those who are committed fully to the program enjoy a close-knit working environment and a productive atmosphere conducive to learning and studying

We have state-of-the-art laboratories, internationally renowned professors who are well-know in the industry as well as at other departments at the JKU. These connections result in highly relevant and top quality research findings.
