Smartphones, cars and digital cameras - most people know how to use these things. But there are many tasks to be accomplished before you have the product in your hand. It requires an engineer who can connect mechanics, electronics and software - namely, a mechatronic engineer.

The study programme is in English and enables you to develop high tech industry products.

Through project work you will gain various skills in the field of product development, which in addition to technical design also comprises marketing and production. This combination prepares you to work in technical product development and later on to be team leader in a research and development department.

During the study programme you have the opportunity to specialise in either a multidisciplinary profile, a profile in Mechanics, a profile in Electronics or a profile in Embedded systems:

You can continue your profile on the master programme.

The bachelor programme is a three-year programme where you will learn about user-oriented creativity, innovation and business. Read more about that under the structure of the programme.

After the first three years you study for two years at master level to get the full MSc in Engineering degree. At the master programme you can focus on the academic fields that interest you the most.
