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 mainly 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. However, 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 the places could not be filled with a more similar training student. The same would happen with Graduates in Physics from the Electronics specialty, Mining Engineers, Roads, etc.
In any case, those who begin their studies in this degree must have knowledge of mechanics and / or electronics at the undergraduate level, as well as knowledge of at least two of the languages used in the consortium: German, Spanish and French; since the 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, as well as knowing how to work in a team, establishing relationships personal with people of other cultures.Professional outingsThis Master provides the necessary scientific and technical basis for the conception of mechatronic systems. The training includes the fundamental disciplines -mechanics, electronics, automation, optics, production and informatics- and the technological aspects associated with these systems. Cross-training and international vocation are also taken care of, which is why an important dedication to seminars and the possibility of expanding language learning are included. The incorporation of various teaching methodologies, especially project-based teaching.
The objective of this Master is to give this knowledge a single entity and ensure that the student does not see each discipline (mechanical, electronic and automatic) as independent blocks, but is able to combine them appropriately to give rise to a complete mechatronic design. The Master in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Oviedo is largely coordinated with that of the European Master in Mechatronics and Micromechatronic Systems (EU4M).
