Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

New and improved functions are achieved by combining mechanical design, control engineering, programming and embedded control systems. Based on the students' previous knowledge in physical prototypes, CAD, mechanics and electrical engineering, the course will give a basic knowledge in mechatronics. The main part of the course acts to train your skills in using mechatronic tools to build prototypes with some intelligence. To be able to produce physical mechatronic prototypes, modern prototyping machines will be used, such as 3D printers, laser engraving machines, prototype milling machines, water jets, vacuum forming machines and manual tools. A large part of the course is related to a project task, where the students make mechatronic physical prototypes in groups.

The laboratory sessions are intended for programming of embedded systems.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

  • create programmes for embedded systems
  • design and build mechatronic prototypes
  • explain the architecture and functions of microcomputers
  • explain the difference between real-time programming and non-time-critical programming
  • explain what is required for mechatronic product realisation

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering or the equivalent.

MF1016 Electrical engineering or the equivalent.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB2 - Laboration, 1.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
  • PRO2 - Project, 2.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TEN2 - Oral exam, 2.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
