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.
The study programme is not open for non-EU/non-EEA applicants.
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.
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.
The admission requirements is a bachelor's degree in engineering from study programmes in mechatronics, mechanical, electrical, renewable energy or equivalent education and passed exams in Mathematics 3. It is a requirement to have a weighted average grade of C or better.
Through the program you may qualify for doctoral training in mechatronics at the University of Agder.
Completed supplementary course gives the degree Master of Technology - Civil Engineering.
