Course content

In the course of the electronic revolution at the end of the 20th century, mechanical engineering was reinvented as the backbone of industrial production. The result is mechatronics, a synergistic combination of mechanical components with electronic and IT systems. This technological integration forms new areas of application like electrical and digital technology in machine communication and control.

With the introduction of the Master program in Mechatronics & Smart Technologies, MCI has filled a gap in the educational offering in the west of Austria. With its international orientation and a consistent focus on practical relevance, the program makes a significant contribution to the goal of establishing the Tyrol as a high-tech location with the ability to compete at the international level and defy the fluctuations of the business cycle. With the implementation of the majors in mechanical and electrical engineering and the specialization in computational mechanics at our partner campus in Paris, MCI continues its way as spear head of the Tyrolean technology offensive.

The goal of the Master program in particular is to equip graduates with a competence in mechatronics that is more than the sum of its parts, i.e. mechanical engineering, electronics and IT. Integration of these three pillars is the key to smart technologies as robotics, automated code generation, multi-physical simulation, systems in systems and smart automation, and their application in electro mobility, industry 4.0 and energy efficiency.

With supporting classes in Leadership, Strategic Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship, this study program opens up perspectives for knowledge-based careers in the manufacturing and service industries worldwide.

Major Mechanical Engineering

The specialization in Mechanical Engineering prepares graduates for the challenges of modern mechanical engineering. The focus here is on simulation, hydraulics, pneumatics and material sciences, and also on mechanics, machine dynamics and handling technology.


The Master program in Mechatronics & Smart Technologies lasts four semesters comprising 915 hours of classes.

A semester of the full-time program comprises 15 weeks of lectures. The winter semester starts at the beginning of October until the end of January and the summer semester starts in March and lasts until the end of June.
Classes are entirely taught in English, attendance is required from Monday to Friday with additional block classes as well as project and laboratory work.

For the part-time program, the semesters last 20 weeks, from the beginning of September until the middle of February for the winter semester, and from the end of February until the middle of July for the summer semester. Classes are mainly taught in German but also partly in English. Attendance is required on Fridays from 1.30 to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there are additional block classes as well as project and laboratory work, etc.
