In the video below, you will meet José who has a degree in Mechatronics from SDU. He now works at Danfoss Power Solutions.
With a BEng degree in Mechatronics you gain a broad knowledge of mechanics, electronics and software. Furthermore, in your studies, you have the opportunity to specialise in Mechanic Engineering, Electronic Engineering or Embedded Engineering.
The focus of the programme is product development. This opens up job opportunities in companies in development and sales of mechatronic systems. With you broad basic knowledge and your core competences as a mechatronics engineer, you are able to perform a range of tasks in the company.
Typical jobs for mechatronics engineers:
- Development engineer
- Project manager
- Customer service / consultancy
- Project sales
A development engineer job is the typical career starting point for the mechatronics engineer graduates. But after a few years many get the opportunity to work in a managerial capacity combined with the technical task. As an engineer you often take part in development processes across organisations, and you are involved in external cooperation with companies in Denmark and abroad.
Develop the products of the future
Alternatively you may become a specialist in advanced technology, or you may start your own company. Common to all the job opportunities is that with your mechatronics engineering background will have great influence on the development of the mechatronic products of the future – regarding design, functionality and purpose.
With this programme you are qualified for a job in Denmark or abroad. You can also continue your studies at master level e.g. MSc (Eng) in Mechatronics.
