Range of Courses

Electrical drive technology and power electronics represent a core area of mechatronics studies at JKU. Following the conversion of the diploma course into the international Bachelor's and Master's programmes, the mechatronics programme has consisted of a three-year Bachelor's and a two-year Master's programme since 2007.

In both studies, electrical drive engineering is a focal point, ranging from the basics to the design and layout of machines and chapters of modern control engineering for brushless motors. Courses in the field of power electronics complete the range of topics.

Central points for these studies are:

        Basics
        application orientation
        Scientific depth
        Independence and ability to learn
        Sustainability and relevance of knowledge
        Ability to work in a team and social competence
        Criticism and decision-making ability
