Mobile phones, iPods, cars and digital cameras – most people know how to use them, but it takes a lot of work before they reach the consumer. And it takes an engineer to combine the necessary mechanics, electronics and software – the mechatronics engineer!

Career Opportunities  
With a degree in Mechatronics you will typically attract companies that develop intelligent products with considerable technology content.You are qualified for jobs as, for example:
•Development engineer, e.g. with managerial responsibility
•Project manager 
•Specialist in specific technologies 
•Consultant or customer adviser 
•Project salesperson 
•Researcher at universities in Denmark or abroad 
•Entrepreneur with your own company.

About the Degree

Visit any home in Europe and you will find several mechatronic products – intelligent products combining electronic, mechanical and software solutions. From music systems and video players to digital cameras and DVD players, mechatronic products are developing at such a speed that industry requires engineers who can work fast – in a range of disciplines.
With a degree in mechatronics you will be able to develop advanced industrial products – from idea to product launching. Therefore, you will learn to combine technologies such as mechanics, electronics and software and to work in project teams with departments in marketing, design, manufacturing and logistics.  

On the bachelor programme you can choose to focus on Mechatronics Engineering or you can specialize by choosing a profile in either Mechanical engineering, Electronics engineering or Embedded systems engineering.

Each of the six semesters has a specific theme and structure:                    
Semester 1 Discover Mechatronics            
Semester 2 Build Mechatronics            
Semester 3 Develop Mechatronics            
Semester 4 Construct Mechatronics/Mechanics,Electronics/Embedded Systems            
Semester 5 Experts in Teams Semester
