Programmes and Courses

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 disciplines: Electrical Engineering, Embedded Systems, Mechatronic Engineering, Systems Engineering. However, 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.

Programmes

The Robotics and Mechatronics group participates in the following programmes:

Furthermore, regularly, students of 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 students from Industrial Design Engineering.

The language for the MSc programmes is English.

Before starting with the MSc programme Electrical Engineering with us (so the specialisation Robotics and Mechatronics), or the MSc programme Systems and Control with us (so the specialisation Robotics & Mechatronics), your study programme should be approved by the programme coordinator, prof.dr.ir. Gijs Krijnen. For more information on these programmes and approval of your MSc study programme, please contact prof.dr.ir. Gijs Krijnen (intake-ram@utwente.nl) or our secretary Mrs. Jolanda Boelema-Kaufmann: j.m.boelema-kaufmann@utwente.nl.
