The Mechatronics specialization in engineering provides you with in-depth knowledge of structures for devices, equipment and systems which are essential part of our modern lives.
Mechatronics engineering is a multidisciplinary branch focusing traditionally on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems. The focus in our degree program is on machine automation. The modern concept of mechatronics includes a combination of automation, robotics, smart operating devices, and hardware-oriented programming as well as controlling systems and mechanical engineering in order to produce design solutions unifying the subfields and to create smart systems.
In SAMK‘s laboratories, the student has the chance to experiment, as we believe that in order to learn you need to be able to see, to feel, to make mistakes and to find solutions. You need to plan and execute projects, you need to be able to sell your ideas and you need to be able to work in a multidisciplinary team of experts. The acquisition, sharing and collaborative collection of knowledge is one of the key factors for success.
The goal of the studies is to prepare the students for the versatile demands of the modern working life.
The degree programme contains the elements of engineering in a blended way. You will be mentored and guided in a way to allow you to combine the understanding of basic studies (e.g. applied mathematics, natural sciences, communication and project management) and professional studies (e.g. automation, robotics, construction design, mechanical engineering) to understand entities and manage projects in an efficient and economical way. You will complete your degree with elective studies, practical training and Bachelor’s thesis.
Studies are carried out in English in a multicultural group of students in close cooperation with working life.
- Areas of mechatronics from fundamentals to deeper knowledge and understanding
- To take responsibility for your own learning path to support your future career
- Communication, problem solving and experimenting to find solutions
- Entrepreneurial mindset
During the four years of full-time studies, the programme will guide your way to pursuit your career in an exciting and versatile field of technology. Are you ready to meet the challenge and take actions for your future in mechatronics? Are you ready to join us? Then pack your bags with interest, high motivation to get to the bottom of things, determination, and openness to cooperate!
