Programme structure

The Bachelor of Engineering includes half a year’s internship in Denmark or abroad. The degree is vocationally oriented meaning that after 3½ years you will be ready to enter the job market. The degree will also qualify you to continue your studies and take a Master of Science in Engineering. The programme is taught in English.

Each semester is based on a main theme which will be the focal point for the semester's theory and project work. From the very beginning of the study period you will be part of a project group working with projects which often use problems faced by companies as a starting point.

First semester
In the first semester you will gain insight into what mechatronics is and what it takes to develop mechatronic products. You will work with subjects such as mechatronic design, materials and processes, embedded systems and maths and physics. With your project group you will design a small mechatronic product taking you through the entire development process.

Second semester
This is where you will gain an understanding of the system in general as well as knowledge about system components and their interactions. You will learn to design electronic and mechanic elements and produce and incorporate them into mechatronic products. As part of the semester project you will work with theory in practice when you develop a mechatronic product that can move.

Third semester
In this semester you will build on the knowledge you have gained about mechatronics and the development of mechatronic products. You will learn about subjects such as analogue electronics, actuators and sensors as well as dynamic systems.
The semester project will focus on the development of a complete mechatronic system involving the use of actuators and sensors, design of electronics and specification and production of mechatronics.
You will also choose which of the profiles you will specialise in.

Fourth semester
In the fourth semester you will immerse yourself in your chosen subject profile. You can choose a profile in mechanics, electronics, embedded systems, or you can choose a multidisciplinary profile where you choose between subjects from the other profiles. As well as two profile subjects/electives you will have a semester project focusing on the chosen profile and obligatory subjects Control Engineering and Computer Aided Engineering.

Fifth semester
This semester is about innovation, multidisciplinary skills and entrepreneurship (Experts in Teams). You and your project group will organise yourselves into a virtual company where you will go through all development phases from idea to creation of a fully functioning prototype - taking into consideration economy, external suppliers, etc.
As well as this you will continue with your chosen profile.
You can also choose to study abroad for a semester.

Sixth semester
As a Bachelor of Engineering student you will have a mandatory internship in a company. The internship is at your sixth semester and can be spend in Denmark or abroad.

At your internship you will practice what you have learned, and the theory will be tested in relation to the concrete challenges in a company; beside that, you will develop a network. Under your internship you will develop and get a solid understanding of the work tasks your future career will revolve around.

With an internship you will get an understanding of what you can expect, when you are done studying. You will get tasks that corresponds with the knowledge you have, but there will also be an opportunity to develop your professional skills the way you want to. You will become even better at planning and completing assignments you already have been introduced to during earlier lectures.
That network you will develop doing your internship, can you use for your last semester. Many students doing their internship develop ideas for their bachelor’s thesis. Also, many students cooperate with their internship company doing their bachelor’s thesis.

Maybe the internship and the cooperate with the internship company will resulting in a permanent job after your graduation.

Internship abroad
With an internship abroad you will gain international experiences – and you will train and use your linguistic skills while you have an experience for life. Beside that, it is a great value to be able to refer your internship in a company abroad in your CV, in relation to future job applications after your graduation

Seventh semester
In the final semester you will prepare a final project in partnership with a company in Denmark or abroad. The task to be solved will be a real one drawn from what you have learned on the study programme.
