Degree structure and studies
The Master's Programme in Mechatronic System Design is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.
The programme includes core, specialisation and minor studies.
Core studies (35 ECTS credits) include topics on research methods, structural materials, industrial manufacturing processes, reliability engineering design, management and leadership skills.
Specialisation studies (60 ECTS credits) include topics on mechatronics, electrical motion control systems, machine dynamics and simulation, fatique design.
Minor studies (25 ECTS credits) include alternative minor studies from laser processing or advanced materials engineering.
The Master's Thesis and Seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialisation studies. The thesis an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. It is completed during the fourth semester of the degree programme.
