Learning outcomes


  • The learning objective is to provide candidates with a sound understanding of selected issues within the field of Mechatronics.
  • They will have knowledge of complex systems of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical elements and the interaction between such systems.
  • Robots and cranes will be focused in the course.    


  • Theoretical understanding and skills designing of mechatronics systems with electronics and software.
  • Apply the theory and models learned in the course to real mechatronics systems.
  • Gain experience in working with physical sensors, actuators and programming.

General competence:
