Programme learning outcomes

As a graduate of the specialisation Sensor Systems and Actuators ...

  • … you can select the appropriate sensor principle for various tasks based on expert knowledge and dimension the necessary components.
  • … you can apply basic techniques of digital signal processing in 1D and 2D and implement with purpose, taking into account the advantages and disadvantages. You can format, statistically analyse and interpret sensor signals. You can master basic techniques and methods and can apply them in combination to derive characteristic features from the measured signals (feature extracting). You can estimate the reliability of the results and have experience in dealing with scientific problems.
  • … you have good knowledge of the functioning of modern drives (e.g. induction machines, micro drives and permanent magnet synchronous machines), their dynamics and special characteristics in control (e.g. field–oriented control). You can analyse complex power electronic circuits (static, dynamic) and know the desired and undesired effects. You are familiar with terms such as EMC, PFC and distortion, and are aware of their effects.

As a graduate of the specialisation Embedded Systems ...

  • … you have good knowledge of the basic concepts of analysis, design, implementation and testing of real–time systems and embedded systems and can apply to mechatronic applications.
  • … you have good knowledge of the relevant mechatronics network and bus systems as well as protocols and codes and their applications.

As a graduate of the specialisation Robotics ...

  • … you possess the expertise to model, simulate, and implement complete control systems for mechatronic systems, in general and for robots in particular, as well as to integrate additional sensors (especially 3D image processing systems).
  • … you possess the skill to calculate the positions, angles, forces, velocities and accelerations of multi–arm systems using the robot kinematics and dynamics.

As a graduate of the specialisation Computer Aided Engineering ...

  • … you are able to process static and dynamic phenomena of mechanical structures with non–linear behaviour or non–linear approach. You can execute, verify and interpret simulations for various problems with the right selection of solution algorithms.
  • … you can use computational fluid dynamics and recognise its possibilities and limitations.

As a graduate of the specialisation Production Technology ...

  • … you know the most important method of rapid prototyping and can practically apply it.
  • … you can use various methods of industrial production metrology.
  • … you have good knowledge of reverse engineering and can digitise 3D structures and feed into CAD data.
  • … you can create CNC programs for 3–axis and 5–axis simultaneous machining of free–form surfaces using automatic programming. You can create target–actual comparisons and evaluate them qualitatively.
  • … you are familiar with specific micro technology applications and have practical experience in coating and laser ablation.
