Profitable? Marketable? Usable? This programme turns you into a hands-on decision maker who ensures that the entire production process works – including the final product. 

About the Programme

This programme combines science with business, enabling you to manage technology, design and people while optimising production.
You will make decisions across the organisation. Thus, a mechatronics engineer is able to think holistically and to participate in a company’s development focusing on technical, business and social matters.
The programme provides you with broad engineering-related knowledge through basic courses in mechanics, electronics, programming, mathematics and physics and you will gain insight in marketing, design and manufacturing.
Part of the teaching is carried out together with other engineering study programmes at the university campus in Sønderborg.
In this programme, you can choose to focus on Mechatronics Engineering or you can specialize by choosing a profile in either Mechanical engineering, Electronics engineering or Embedded systems engineering.
Each of the seven semesters has a specific theme and structure:                   
Semester 1 Discover Mechatronics              
Semester 2 Build Mechatronics            
Semester 3 Develop Mechatronics              
Semester 4 Construct Mechatronics/Mechanics/Electronics/Embedded Systems   
Semester 5 Experts in Teams
Semester 6 Internship
Semester 7 Final project

The programme consists of both lectures and project work with other students and industry as well as a full semester internship, where you will work on a real-life project for a company

Career Opportunities  

The focus of the programme is product development. This opens up job opportunities in companies in development and sales of mechatronic systems. With your broad basic knowledge and your core competences as a mechatronics engineer, you are able to perform a range of tasks in the company.
