Master in Advanced Mechatronics

General

Program Description

OBJECTIVE

Mechatronics is a synergistic and integrated process of several sciences and skills (among which control and computer sciences, electronics, mechanics) which allows to conceive and to design products and systems with augmented or improved functionality and which requires to consider the conception of the product or system in its overall lifecycle in a cooperative interdisciplinary approach.

After having completed this program, the students are being prepared for Ph.D. studies. They can also work as engineers or occupy high level technical and scientific positions in research centers, in research and development departments and in specialized consulting firms.

COMPETENCIES AND KNOW-HOW

The Master’s students gain the skills to meet the requirements of a multidisciplinary mechatronic project and they become familiar with the requirements of a research activity through blended learning including project-based learning.

3 main competencies are developed during the curriculum through supervised sessions, online courses, and projects:

Design and achieve a mechatronic system

  • implementing the lifecycle of the system or product
  • implementing an integrated process of multiphysics and multi-technology modeling, simulation and design
  • choosing, designing and implementing the required sensors and instrumentation
  • designing the mechanical and/or electromechanical architecture
  • choosing, designing and implementing the digital infrastructure present IN and located AROUND the system

Manage a research project

  • organizing his/her activity and the activity of his/her team
  • reporting to the research program manager
  • considering the questions of eco-responsibility of his/her projects and their legal and economic consequences

Master the skills required for research activities

  • managing and spreading scientific knowledge
  • applying the principles of professional ethics
  • knowing how Research is organized and funded
  • understanding the issues of intellectual property
  • working in an international environment
  • managing uncertainty and challenges

GENERAL STRUCTURE OF THE MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM

4 semesters (30 ECTS/semester) based on blended learning allowing the customization of the student cursus according to his/her background, his/her research project and his/her professional project:

  • Lectures/tutorials/practicals;
  • Self-learning with e-learning platforms and Moocs;
  • Individual and collaborative project-based learning in research labs;
  • Supervision of each project by a staff member (associate professor or full professor);
  • Tutoring by a Ph.D. student (for M1 and M2 students) or by an M2 student (for M1 students);
  • Mentoring by a member of the permanent staff;
  • Participation in an international challenge;
  • Internship in a research structure during the last semester.

ACADEMIC STRUCTURE

From semesters S7 to S9:

Project-based learning through research topics and through participation in an international challenge

Academic learning with a core curriculum and elective courses spanning 3 orientations:

  • Innovative mechatronic product design
  • Autonomous wireless systems
