The University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt or FHWS is one of the biggest universities of applied sciences in Bavaria.
This is an undergraduate engineering programme focusing international students offered in English. If you are interested in studying Mechatronics in German then please go to the webpage of our German degree programme Mechatronik.

The German and English courses are the same, with a few exceptions. Beginning with the first semester, students are offered the opportunity to complete individual studies and exams in the parallel module of the other language and hereby acquire a twin certificate.
TWIN-Bachelor
The "Twin Bachelor Degree Programme" offers students of the degree programmes Mechatronik/Mechatronics the possibility to switch between content of the same German and English language bachelor degree programmes and provides a combination of professional, cultural and linguistic competencies with the aim of strengthening internationalisation.
Students can obtain a twin certificate together with their bachelor's diploma, which they can attach to their application documents and show the future employers that they are able to work in multicultural project teams, deliver results in both German and English, and are able to navigate in an international environment. You will receive a bilingual degree by participating.
This webpage aims to provide general information about the engineering decipline Mechatronics with a brief description of career prospects for mechatronics engineers and salient features of the degree programme offered by FHWS.

    What is Mechatronics?

    Mechatronics definition Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It is the science, that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines: mechanics, electronics, informatics, automation, robotics. It is one of the most dynamically developing fields of technology and science. The word 'mechatronics' appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969. mechatronics = mecha nics + elec tronics + computing

    Ascento - The Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

    All-terrain capabilities are required to extend beyond flat surfaces the application range of wheeled robots. First think is four or six-legged robots which have been well known for years. Nowadays, thanks to more and more perfect gait algorithms, the two-legged (bipedal) robots appears more and more often. ETH Zürich students combine the advantages of wheeled robot and two-legged robot.

    Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

    Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.

    Mechatronics System as the Future of Cooking at Home

    Do you get up in the morning and don't feel like making breakfast? One of the solutions is food delivery service, which leaves your takeout order outside of your front door. Other solution is a private chef who is responsible for shopping for food, menu planning, preparing and cooking meals for you. But if you love mechatronics systems, your solution is a mechatronic kitchen. It allows you to save time, free up your day from routine cooking, plan and adapt your menu according to different diets and lifestyles.

    Stretch - Boston Dynamics Unveils New Robot for Warehouse Automation

    Boston Dynamics is the global leader in mobile robotics. Their popular robots are SpotMini, Spot, Atlas and Handle. Now they has revealed 'Stretch', which is a new box-moving robot designed to support the growing demand for flexible automation solutions in the logistics industry. A Massachusetts company well known for its humanoid robots and dog-like androids is preparing to muscle its way into the warehouse automation industry with its latest mechatronic solution. Warehouse automation is a fast-growing market fueled by increased demand in e-commerce. The robot called Stretch is Boston Dynamics’ first commercial robot specifically designed for warehouse facilities and distribution centers. Robert Playter, CEO of Boston Dynamics said: Warehouses are struggling to meet rapidly increasing demand as the world relies more on just-in-time delivery of goods. Mobile robots enable the flexible movement of materials and improve working conditions for employees. Stretch

    Three Wheels Balancing Robot

    The three wheels balancing robot is similar to a ballbot from the point of view of the goal. In comparison to ballbot which balance itself on a single ball, three wheels balancing robot is designed to balance itself on a single rod. The common characteristics of this kind of robots is that there’s one sole contact point to the ground.

    DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

    Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.

    Theo Jansen Strandbeest

    Theodorus Gerardus Jozef "Theo" Jansen is a Dutch artist. Theo Jansen 's mechanism (named strandbeest - "beach animal") allows to perform walking motion. The advantage is that the required power of the engine used in the mechanism, must be sufficient to transfer only the legs (not transported elements). He invented that in 1991.
