The study programme is only open for EU/EEA applicants.

Would you like to learn more about mechanical systems involving control of heavy forces? Then you will probably enjoy the Master's Programme in Mechatronics. A master’s degree in mechatronics will make you eligible for more interesting and challenging tasks in industry and business than with a bachelor's degree alone.

What do you learn?

The Master's Programme in Mechatronics addresses integration of mechanical engineering, instrumentation engineering, hydraulic and electric drive and industrial IT. You learn to use your knowledge about the interactions between these disciplines working with design and manufacture of products and processes.

Job opportunities

In business and industry, both locally, nationally and internationally, there is great demand for engineers with this kind of background. The education is partly relevant to maritime and offshore equipment design and production. The interdisciplinary expertise will let you become a Mechatronics Engineer eligible for a wide range of jobs.
