During your studies you will work with the development of mechatronic products, i.e. intelligent products which include mechanical, electronic and software based solutions.
Mechatronic products include, for example:
- Industrial robots
- ABS brakes
- Servo steering
- Electronic sewing machines
- Everyday products such as DVD recorders and autofocus on your camera
The programme provides you with broad engineering-related knowledge through basic courses in mechanics, electronics, programming, mathematics and physics and you will gain insight in marketing, design and manufacturing. Part of the teaching is carried out together with other engineering study programmes at the university campus in Sønderborg.
Theme based semesters
Each semester has its own theme in the field of mechatronics. The themes consist of a combination of theoretical courses and project work.
The themes are:
• Semester 1: Discover Mechatronics
• Semester 2: Build Mechatronics
• Semester 3: Develop Mechatronics
• Semester 4: Mechatronics and the Environment
• Semester 5: Experts in Teams
Read more under programme structure.
The specialisation comprises project and courses within your chosen specialisation, i.e. nanotechnology, embedded systems or dynamic mechatronic systems.
Project work and company problem solver
You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups.
You and your fellow students:
• Are responsible for planning and carrying out the project
• Must work together and meet the deadlines
• Solve problems for companies
• Have access to project room.
Learn more from the students themselves.
Internship and final project
In the sixth semester you must complete the engineering internship in a company in Denmark or abroad. Through the internship you acquire relevant work experience of great benefit to you in your following career. In the final semester you carry out the final project – usually also in cooperation with a company.
Jobs that make sense
With this degree you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could work as an application engineer, sales supporter, technical consultant, consultative engineer or project manager on the development and design of products consisting of both mechanical and electrical elements.
You can also continue your studies with an MSc in Mechatronics.
Graduates who have completed this bachelor programme are entitled to use the title of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics.
