About the Programme

Society relies on mechatronics – intelligent products combining electronic, mechanical and software solutions. This programme enables you to design and develop high-tech mechatronic products for a market in constant change; with consumers who demand smaller, faster and more flexible products. You will act as a trouble-shooter across disciplines, identifying problems and optimising production. With technical know-how and leadership skills, you can transform product ideas into practical solutions for everyday life.

The master programme is based on two blocks: a compulsory block called Advanced Mechatronics and Scientific Methods and a specialisation where you can choose between four academic profiles:      
- Micro- and nanotechnology: You will work with electronic systems and information technology in nano-dimensions. 
- Modelling and Control of Mechatronic Systems: Enables you to develop advanced control systems that will meet future demands. 
- Dynamic Mechatronic Systems: Among other things, you will work with mathematical modelling to improve the product development of mechatronic and dynamic systems
- Power Electronics: You will be specialized into the research level of analysing, modelling and developing Power Electronic system in a mechatronic context.

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. 
Usually we receive the project outlines from companies and we emphasise that the problems you solve are ‘real-world’ problems. The last semester is devoted to the master thesis, which will typically be carried out at or in cooperation with an industrial company.
