Programme Structure

The Automation Technology study programme is designed to combine theory with practice. The first 3 semesters take place at the academy where you will learn about the logistics industry through traditional teaching, case studies, company visits and group work.

In the fourth and last semester, theory will be applied in practice through a three-month internship in a company of your choice.

The program is worth 120 ECTS credits and is structured around these core areas:

  • Design and Construction
  • Integration of automated devices
  • System design of automated process and production lines
  • The company

In addition to the core areas, you will be able to choose elective elements in order to specialize in your desired direction.


In order to create the right balance between your theoretical knowledge and your ability to apply it in practice, you must spend three months as an intern in an organization. 

The internship experience will give you an insight on life in the real-business world after graduation.

To make it easier for you to find a suitable internship, we have created an internship portal which serves as a recruitment portal used by both students and companies.
