A Robotic Systems Engineering graduate is someone who...

  • Learns in specialist facilities, which includes a wide range of robotic systems: industrial robots, mobile robots, assistance robotics, and intralogistics robotic systems
  • Develops, implements and programs robotic systems for different levels of autonomy
  • Designs industrial robots that are automated, programmable, and capable to move in a dexterous workspace
  • Combines and applies technological skills of mechanics, electrical drives, sensor technology, and information processing to optimize systems of robots for different domains
  • Organizes and monitors the operation and manufacturing processes
  • Develops robotic systems for embedded production systems or autonomous warehouses (e.g. such as Amazon and Alibaba are aiming to build)

… to make a difference. This could be you?

You can also be a part of our group of highly motivated students who are widely engaged in extracurricular activities. Our Carologistics student team, for example, is the current world champion in the RoboCup Logistics League (RCLL) for the fourth time in a row.

Program Structure

M.Sc. RoboSys comprises three semesters of lectures, exercises and practical courses in mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. In the fourth semester, you will choose either the industrial track, in which you will pursue an internship in industry or the academic track to carry out a research project. You also have to finish your Master's thesis in this final semester.

By awarding the RWTH Aachen Master's Degree, the program gives its graduates a degree that is recognized worldwide and qualifies you for doctoral studies.
