Access requirementsAny person who has an official Spanish university degree, or a degree issued by a higher education institution of the EHEA that empowers the country issuing the degree to access official master's degrees. Students with a foreign qualification (external to the EESS) can also take this Master's degree, which is homologated or not approved, provided that the level of training is equivalent to the degree titles and that it authorizes the issuing country to access official master's degrees.
This Master is aimed at Graduates in Engineering and Technical Engineers, although Engineers, Graduates in Sciences and equivalent graduates who are interested in mechatronics and willing to work in a multinational and multicultural environment can also access. An attempt will be made to avoid the inclusion of students whose training may make it difficult to properly follow the contents of the Master in Mechatronics Engineering. This group includes all engineers, technical engineers and graduates totally unrelated to mechanics and electronics, such as Forest Engineers, Agricultural Engineers, Chemical Engineers, etc.
Engineers, Technical Engineers and Graduates in Computer Science, Telematics and Telecommunications would only have a place if they could not fill the places with a more similar training student. The same would happen with Graduates in Physics of the electronic specialty, Engineers of Mines, Roads, etc.
In any case, those who begin studies in this degree must have knowledge of mechanics and / or electronics at the degree level, as well as knowledge of at least two of the languages used in the consortium (German, Spanish and French), and that classes are always taught in the local language.
Other characteristics that applicants for this degree should have are: ability to communicate orally and in writing in languages commonly used in the international scientific field, concern to know and discover different ways of solving problems, and knowing how to work in a team establishing personal relationships with people from other cultures.
This Erasmus Mundus Master is governed by pre-enrollment and enrollment terms and processes that are different from the rest of University Master's degrees. To consult this procedure, please visit the website of the Erasmus Mundus Master (you can access this website by clicking on "Complete Master Information").Professional outingsMechatronics is a science that seeks to integrate an electronic intelligence into a mechanical system. It is a profound revolution in the design and optimization of new equipment, as this new "discipline" combines and integrates others (Mechanics, Electronics, Automation and Computer Science) that traditionally appear juxtaposed. All this makes Mechatronics a transversal competence that needs to be developed in all types of industries.
The training given in this master's degree allows the future engineer to acquire interdisciplinary skills related to the methodology and tools of design, modeling and simulation, to the control of processes and novel technologies, but also deep knowledge of the basic technologies that constitute the pillars of Mechatronics (Mechanics, Hydraulics, Electronics, Computer Science, Thermotechnics, ...), as well as sensors, actuators and control laws.
For all these reasons, Mechatronics Engineers have a different point of view from that of specialists when it comes to solving problems due to their extensive knowledge of Mechanics, Electronics, Optics, Automation, etc., thus being able to work as specialists (depending on their own orientation) or be ideal coordinators for multidisciplinary groups.
The essence of the Mechatronics Engineers that this qualification proposes is that they can work as specialists, system managers or coordinators, and is given by the following educational objectives and competencies:Scientific / technical work related to Mechatronics, including design, modeling and simulation.
Multidisciplinary cooperation in groups in order to solve complex mechatronics tasks.
Ability to adapt quickly and be able to face various problems and tasks in different fields such as Electronics, Mechanics, Control, etc.
Ability to communicate with people from other countries in different languages.CurriculumThis Master is made up of four semesters, three of academic training and a final one of Master's Thesis, with a total of 120 ECTS credits, taught by: University of Oviedo, Ecole Nationale Superieure de Mecanique et des Microtechnique (France); Hochschule Karksruhe-Technick und Wirtschaft (Germany), Ivanovo State Power Engineering University, Ivanovo, Russia (ISPU), University of the Nile, Cairo, Egypt (NILE)
All classes are taught in the language of each of the institutions. Students must take the first year of the Master's degree at their home institution. The second year must be taken at one of the other institutions of the consortium. The subjects of the first year are coordinated between the three institutions, so the contents of the first year are identical.
The first two semesters consist of 30 ECTS credits each. The other semesters are organized in such a way that the student is given the possibility of moving to do the second year in one of the other countries with which there is an agreement, under pre-established conditions to allow a better organization of training in the three institutions.
