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.
Why this programme?
The programme offers a unique opportunity to acquire integrated knowledge and skills in electrical/electronics and mechanical engineering along with deep ICT knowledge by the courses from the Schools of Engineering and Information Technology.
Strong orientation towards facilitating the development of business and entrepreneurial skills, supported by strong practical course projects.
The programme conforms to internationally recognised professional mechatronics engineering qualification standards.
Double Degree option in MSc Mechatronics in collaboration with ITMO University St. Petersburg
With the introduction of the Master of Mechatronics programme taught in English, the Centre of Mechatronics and Autonomous Systems at School of Engineering has made a step forward in internationalisation and innovation. This is also a large step towards becoming a top recognized research university in the Baltic region and attracting more talented international students, as well a world-class academic staff. The programme provides interdisciplinary integration of modern manufacturing technologies. Graduates of this programme will have excellent job prospects in manufacturing and service industries worldwide or can continue their studies in a PhD research programme.
