Industrial Mechatronics (IMECH)

Mechatronics primarily integrates the knowledge from the fields of mechanics, electronics, informatics and control. Additionally, it makes it possible to improve the properties of existing products but also the development of completely new products. Mechatronics is already well established in almost all industries, such as automotive industry, industrial automation, robotics, consumer electronics, etc. Mechatronic options attract customers due to their user-friendliness as well as simplicity. A typical example is the automotive industry, e.g. the various assistance systems that increase comfort and safety, etc. This myriad of enhancements is the reason why customers prefer the options provided by mechatronic products. The study programme is focused on the preparation of experts in mechanical and electrical engineering that possess the knowledge like basics of informatics and automation in relation to operation, production, testing and to some extend the design of mechatronic systems.

Multidisciplinary Team Manager

Graduating in the field of Mechatronics opened my way to a wide application at the labour market. In the contemporary industrial production, there is practically no purely mechanical product. It is all a combination of electronics, mechanics, programming, construction and design. All of this is provided by the Department of Mechatronics TUKE.
