Mechatronics is a relatively new engineering science, combining the classical engineering sciences of mechanics, electrical engineering and information technology. The mechatronics engineer therefore carries out activities requiring an in-depth knowledge both of mechanical engineering and of electrical engineering/electronics.
The MSc in Mechatronics Engineering deals with interdisciplinary domains of mechanical and electronic engineering. Mechatronics is fundamental to the study and development of the products project. Modern products are constituted by mechanisms, electrical or electronic circuits, and therefore a combination of these areas is needed to design, develop and manufacture a successful product.
Mechatronics allows the creation of simpler, more economical, safer and more versatile systems. Examples of mechatronic products are as follows: ABS systems, robots, industrial automation intelligent systems. Typical areas of application for Mechatronics are as follows: automation and robotics, automobile technology, biotechnology, biomechanics, micromechanics and microsystems, sensors, etc., as other fast development and high added value areas.
This Master degree provides basic training to carry out a course of 3rd cycle (PhD) in the same scientific area, or other areas.
