Master of Science in Mechatronics (Intake closes on Friday 15th March 2019)

The Master of Science in Mechatronics programme provides students with a broad range of knowledge and skills in the field of automation and control of production processes and equipment, as well as in the field of mechatronic devices and systems control. It focuses on the study of network technologies (e.g. Ethernet, Industrial Protocol, Profinet, Modbus, Profibus, Devicenet, Control Net), and development of SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) construction. Practical use of real-time systems is also an important part of the programme. Students shall apply the theoretical principles of industrial robotics and mechatronics, mechatronic and robotic actuators, and modern technologies of microcontroller applications.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this Masters Programme the participants will be able to: recognize the purpose, functioning and need for mechatronic systems in modern industry and everyday life as true interdisciplinary systems; achieve engineering expertise in the choice and analysis of mechanisms, sensors, actuators and controllers as components of a mechatronic system; the ability to model and design mechatronic systems based on customer requirements and best practice examples; the ability to design a stand-alone mechatronic system based on user-case specifications; the ability to integrate a mechatronic system as an intelligent upgrade of an already functioning system in industry; the ability to carry out development projects independently and in teams.
