The sea turtle as a model for an underwater robot – this thesis project serves as an illustrative example of the focus of the Master's programme ‘Bionics: Mobile Systems’: broad knowledge of methods and skills in the field of sustainable mobility systems. Over the course of the degree programme, you acquire skills in conducting experiments and setting up simulations. You will be able to analyse and conceptualise biological locomotion systems in order to derive applications for technical (transport) systems. The degree programme provides expertise in animal locomotion (running, swimming, flying), aero- and hydrodynamics as well as methods of engineering and fluid mechanics such as body tracking, high-speed analysis, digital particle image velocimetry (DPIV) or computational fluid dynamics (CFD). For terrestrial locomotion systems, for example, multi-body simulation (MBS) is used. The standard period of study is 3 semesters including the Master's thesis, which you can write in conjunction with partners in the fields of research and industry in Germany and abroad.
Graduates of the Bionics Master's programme can choose from a wide spectrum of activities in all areas surrounding the research and development of innovative, sustainable technologies at the interface of future-oriented transport and mobility systems:
Future careers lie in the following areas, among others:
Occupational fields in the area of human machine interaction
In addition, the M.Sc. degree gives you worldwide access to doctoral programmes.
The first and second semesters of the Master's programme ‘Bionics: Mobile Systems’ comprise five modules each. The main part of the third semester is taken up with preparation of the Master's thesis. In addition to the attendance hours in the form of lectures and practicals, students complete two-thirds of the course work in independent study.
A stay abroad is not compulsory, but is gladly supported.
For almost 20 years, the B-I-C has been coordinating developments in basic and applied research. Furthermore, the Institute supports and moderates the transfer of technology from science to industry, not least within the framework of national and international networking with the diverse stakeholders in the field. Especially in the context of lifelong learning, the centre has also significantly expanded its activities in the area of further education.
