Masters of Science in Mechatronics (90 ECTS)

Overview

The Master of Science in Mechatronics programme provides students with a broad range of knowledge and skills in the field of automation and control of production processes and equipment, as well as in the field of mechatronic devices and systems control. It focuses on the study of network technologies (e.g. Ethernet, Industrial Protocol, Profinet, Modbus, Profibus, Devicenet, Control Net), and the development of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system construction. The practical use of real-time systems is also an important part of the programme. Students shall apply the theoretical principles of industrial robotics and mechatronics, mechatronic and robotic actuators, and modern technologies of microcontroller applications.

Course Duration

5 Semesters

Entry Requirements

Relevant degree,MQF Level 5 qualification and adequate professional experience are also considered.

Careers & Progression
