Mechatronic Engineering: Mechatronic Design
Designing mechatronic products requires a dedicated approach including: interdisciplinary design, market related constraints, multifunctionality, user-friendly operation and minimization of the cost of the whole product operation period. Thus designers who create mechatronic products should possess comprehensive interdisciplinary knowledge, ability to co-operate in an interdisciplinary designing team as well as team management skills of how to use the up-to-date tools of computer aided engineering. Additionally, the should know how to schedule and carry out the prototyping of mechatronic systems.
Mechatronic Design is based on a project oriented type of studying, including co-operation in project teams. Such approach leads to better understanding of specific nature of mechatronic design process and to learn techniques of how to solve interdisciplinary design problems. During the study each student will take part in a project focused on the design and prototyping of a mechatronic product.
The study program consists of courses on design of mechanical, electronic and control systems, as well as techniques of software and hardware application. During the classes students learn how to use dedicated software tools as well as testing equipment in the process of designing and prototyping of the complex mechatronic systems.
The specialty courses deal with problems of designing of embedded systems as well as microsystems (MEMS). Students take part in actual research projects, development activities and practical trainings.
