(Junior) Developer for Autonomous Vehicles
Self-driving cars will shape the street scene in the coming years. But robots in warehouses or trucks are also increasingly equipped with Artificial Intelligence technology. If you focus on this field during your Bachelor's degree, you can start out in development teams after graduation and help shape the future of mobility.
(Junior) Developer for Smart Factory
Robots with artificial intelligence can learn like humans: They are able to identify and carry out their tasks independently. If you decide to focus on Automation & Robotics, you will be part of the rapid developments in the areas of Smart Factory, Smart Production and Industry 4.0 in the future. This is because you bring all the necessary skills to progressively change the way factories and manufacturing plants work.

Our Bachelor's programme gives you all the skills you need tosuccessfully position yourself in this field with your elective module in AR/VR development.
