Duration of study   3 semesters including final degree examination and Master thesis
Academic degree   Master of Science (MSc)
    Modules Overview


The consecutive, research-oriented Master degree course Biomimetics: Motion Systems culminates in a Master of Science (MSc). It focuses on biological and engineering contents.


Course Contents

The master degree course 'Biomimetics: Motion Systems' offers experimental competences as well as simulation techniques to enable profound analysis and abstraction of different biological kinetic systems, intending an adoption to technical concepts. Profound knowledge of animal locomotion, analysis and abstraction of scientific results and of the transfer process into technical (motion) systems is imparted.


The fields of aero- and hydrodynamics include topics and methods of fluid mechanics such as:

  • Digital Particle Imaging Velocimetry (DPIV),
  • High-speed-analysis,
  • Bodytracking,
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).


In terrestrial motion systems e.g. multi-body-simulation (MKS) is applied.


Apart from technical, scientific and methodical proficiencies students have the opportunity of training their social skills in interdisciplinary project teams and on excursions.

Career Prospects

A wide range of professional activities opens up to the graduates in almost all fields of scientific or technical research and development. The double concentration in natural science and engineering makes future graduates attractive candidates on the job market in research and development departments. See interviews with some of the graduates.


Primary areas of professional activity:

  • Professional guilds in the field of "Man-Machine-Interaction"
  • Power supply industry
  • Robotics
  • Automotive engineering
  • Aerospaceindustry
  • Supplying industry
  • Engineering- and design-Firms
  • Various research institutions

Regular period of study

The regular period of study is 3 semesters including the final degree examinations and the Master thesis.
