Education

Through the years, Robotics and Mechatronics has been popular amongst students as a group for doing a BSc- or MSc-project. Typical for the work in Robotics and Mechatronics is the multidisciplinary systems approach. To reach an optimal result / system design, a background is necessary in (some of) the underlying discipline: Electrical Engineering, Embedded Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering.

See also our courses we teach.

But the scope of the educational programme is broader. The analysis and design philosophy and the tools used for designing robotic and mechatronic systems (modelling and simulation, controller design, image processing and realisations in embedded computer systems) are applicable to many technical and non technical systems. It is therefore not surprising that graduates from the group Robotics and Mechatronics easily find interesting jobs in a wide variety of application areas.

Robotics and Mechatronics group participates in the following programmes:

Furthermore, regularly, students of BSc Advanced Technology,  MSc Technical Medicine, MSc Biomedical Engineering, and MSc Mechanical Engineering do their final project in our lab.

Our courses are attended not only by students following the programmes we participate in and students we see in the lab for their final project, but also from Industrial Design Engineering, Advanced Technology, and of

The language for the MSc programmes is English.

Before starting with the MSc programme, your study programme should be approved by the programme coordinator.
