MF2035 Mechatronics, Advanced Course 18.0 credits

Mekatronik, högre kurs

Mechatronics Advanced Course aims to provide the student with the professional skills needed to create innovative mechatronics products. This multidisciplinary product development is realized by combining mechanical design, with control-, electronics- and software engineering. In this course, the students will be exposed to real-life industrial needs and situations through close cooperation with industrial partners.

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course focuses on product development, of mechatronic products, in large projects. Innovative and intelligent products are created by developing knowledge and skills in motion control, robotics, embedded systems, real-time programming, distributed systems. The course is based on problem based learning and work in large projects, where the ability to engage in professional development while developing cooperation, communication and project management is practiced.

In the learning environment, team formation, teamwork and industrial collaboration are an integrated part. The student teams work in collaboration with industrial representatives to determine the specific factors that govern product requirements, design and realization. They focus on product-needs, design requirements, performance requirements and testing and validation.

Intended learning outcomes *

The student should after the course be able to:

• apply knowledge and skills from earlier courses, as well as learn to acquire new ones on demand;

• identify, compare and critically assess aspects of an engineering problem, towards making design decisions;

•  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.

The student should after the course 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.

Further, the student should be able to work through all aspects of an engineering development process:

•  apply and use professional tools and methods for product development;

•  use modern and relevant working methods;

•  apply a Model-based development approach to mechatronics product development;

•  apply a fundamental test process;

•  apply a requirements management method.
