Automotive Mechatronics and ManagementInnovations for the Future of Mobility
Rapid developments in vehicle engineering have led to a merging of the fields of Mechanics, Electronics and Informatics. One cause of this is that vehicles meet customer demands by the optimal interplay of various mechanical and electronic components. Many functions in the areas of comfort, safety and efficiency are only made possible by mechatronic systems. In this context specific expertise in the mechatronic disciplines, combined with social- and business economics competences, will be central requirements of future employees and managers in the motor vehicle industry. Precisely these requirements are the focus of the new Master’s degree programme Automotive Mechatronics and Management.
This international Master’s degree programme meets the demand of the industry for engineers who can combine complex individual components into innovative mechatronic systems with improved or completely new functions and in doing so think and act under consideration of qualitative and cost aspects. The fields of activity of graduates are therefore in the execution and management of mechatronic development projects, in the design and validation of mechatronic vehicle systems or as quality engineers in the field of quality assurance in the product development process.
Mo (sem. 1), Mo/Tue (sem. 2 & 3) are meant for internships. Therefore some lectures are scheduled on Fri evenings & Sat.

AMM enables you to proactively and sustainably shape the future of mobility. The competence portfolio provides the basis for exciting tasks and management functions in development departments of companies in the mobility industry. The portfolio of competencies taught in the AMM degree program also enables you to take on many other attractive positions in international technology companies where, in addition to technical expertise, a high level of interdisciplinary competence is particularly in demand!
The practice-orientation of this degree programme is guaranteed by close cooperation with companies in the automotive industry. Ideally, the projects in the 3rd semester and the Master´s Thesis are carried out at partner companies. In this regard, students receive comprehensive support from the study programme during the application process and project implementation. Further, many of the professors and lecturers work in the automotive industry or closely with it.
... Mechatronics and vehicle manufacturing are strongpoints of the Upper Austrian economy! This is why the need for highly-qualified graduates in these fields will continue to grow in the future. Leading companies in the automotive industry are working closely with this degree programme.
We have answered the most burning questions about the study programme for you.
Students of the AMM Master's program have a variety of options for individualizing their studies. Students can choose the practical PROJECTS integrated into the curriculum as well as the focus of their MASTER´S THESIS according to their intended professional activity or interests. Furthermore, in the first two semesters, there is scope for INDIVIDUAL QUALIFICATION to the extent of 8 ECTS. In addition, electives of up to 4 ECTS are also provided in the third semester.
In the 2nd and 3rd semester, both MONDAY and TUESEDAY are free of teaching. The fourth semester is generally free of teaching. Thus, as a rule, some students work part-time already from the 2nd semester and almost all from the 3rd semester. In the 4th semester, all AMM students have been employed by a company and have written their master's thesis there. AMM supports the application activities in many ways.
It is great to see that to date approx. 80% of the mostly international AMM graduates stayed in Austria after their graduation and found an attractive job mostly based on their master thesis!
