The programme aims to give students professional knowledge and skills for a successful career in the future that are orientated to ICT intensive engineering technologies, such as mechatronics, robotics and automation, which presume professional abilities to integrate, conduct and lead complex engineering projects integrating smart ICT and hardware technologies for solving practical problems and starting a new business. This programme is strongly orientated towards practical, hands-on projects and developing practical skills supported by laboratories of mechatronics, robotics, machine vision, automation, etc. and computer classes.
Most of the courses are project based supported by theoretical materials. There are several Practical Project courses on the first year containing the topics of machine control, autonomous and industrial robotics and mechatronics and sensoric systems aimed to work with some real industrial applications by student groups ending with presenting a conference paper as a rule. Examples of this kind projects are “Smart control of collaborative robots”, “3D vision serving for robots” and “UAV and UGV control simulation and hardware systems”, etc.
Future belongs to the specialities which provide ICT intensive flexible and integrated deep technical knowledge as it is the case in Mechatronics curricula. A good proof of this is the fact that Forbes nominates two MSc Mechatronics graduates among the EU most successful young leaders and entrepreneurs in Industry and Science in 2015 and a graduate lady in 2018.
The 2 year (120 ECTS) curriculum comprises the following modules:
General studies (12 ECTS)
- Basics of mechatronics (24 ECTS)
- Specialisation grounds (14 ECTS)
- Mechatronics applications (10 ECTS)
- Smart systems (17 ECTS)
Free choice courses (6 ECTS)
Graduation thesis (24 ECTS)
The graduates of the programme possess skills applicable in a broad sphere, such as automation and robotics and mechatronics engineers in industry; project managers and entrepreneurs and managers of innovative SMEs orientated towards developing cutting edge technology or medicinal devices; health and space industry; security; products combining hardware and ICT, etc. Active and bright mechatronics engineers are urgently needed in the fields of automatic production lines and robotics such as ABB or SIEMENS. Students can also continue their studies at PhD level in mechatronics or in a related field.
