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, the ability to cooperate in an interdisciplinary designing team, and team management skills on how to use the up-to-date tools of computer-aided engineering. Additionally, they should know how to schedule and carry out the prototyping of mechatronic systems.
Mechatronic Design is based on a project-oriented type of study, including cooperation in project teams. Such an approach leads to a better understanding of the specific nature of the mechatronic design process and learning techniques of how to solve interdisciplinary design problems. The study program consists of courses on the design of mechanical, electronic and control systems and 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 complex mechatronic systems.
The speciality courses concern problems of embedded systems designing and microsystems (MEMS).
BSc in a cognate discipline or equivalent document, appropriate knowledge of English.
Candidates who apply for the second-cycle degree programme (Master level) in Mechatronic Engineering with English as a language of instruction may be admitted only if they:
I. have completed equivalent first-cycle degree studies (Bachelor level) with the following requirements:
· not less than 18 ECTS of Mathematics,
· not less than 12 ECTS of Physics,
· not less than 30 ECTS of other basic science courses,
· not less than 25 ECTS of courses devoted to the development of design skills, including capstone design courses,
· not less than 2 ECTS of non-technical subjects (humanities, economic and social courses),
II. successfully complete the entrance examination (minimum 50%) or entrance examination for foreigners who apply for admission on the basis of the AGH UST Rector’s decision.
The examination includes questions verifying programme learning outcomes defined for the first-cycle degree studies in AGH UST Mechatronic Engineering with English as a language of instruction.
