The Mechatronics Track aims to provide students with the professional skills needed to create innovative mechatronics products and to work with complex product development. This multidisciplinary work is realized by combining mechanical design with control-, electronics- and software engineering. Students are exposed to real-life industrial needs and situations through close cooperation with industrial partners.
The education is characterized by a solid theoretical foundation combined with problem oriented and project based courses. Core topics are motion control, robotics, embedded systems, real-time programming and distributed systems - in essence key technologies for designing and implementing smart and innovative products. Students can individually select profiles in areas such as e.g. medical systems, vehicles, automation or research, which provide increased motivation and a means for specializing towards a specific sector.
On completing the track, all students will have good technical understanding, knowledge and skill in:
• modelling, simulation and visualization of dynamic products and systems;
• methods and tools for co-design and optimization of mechatronic systems;
• working through all aspects of an engineering development process;
• designing and implementing prototypes.
And should be able to:
• identify, compare and critically assess aspects of an engineering problem, towards making design decisions;
• describe, compare and critically examine various product development processes and their properties;
• apply and evaluate support methods in complex product development;
• use professional tools and processes necessary for the development of mechatronics products;
• learn to get organised, manage, lead and become part of a cross technical and complex development project.
