Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Have gained knowledge and understanding of advanced engineering design of electro-mechanical systems (Mechatronic systems)
  • Be able to understand and apply advanced analysis and design tools for evaluating the performance of advanced electro-mechanical systems
  • Have knowledge and comprehension of design methodology for mechatronic systems


  • Be able to describe the problem solved and the criteria applied for its solution
  • Be able to evaluate the concepts, theories and methodologies applied in the solution of the problem
  • Be able to account for the choices made during the solution of the problem, and substantiate that these are made on a high professional level
  • Be able to assess the limitations of the concepts, theories and methodologies applied in the solution of the problem


  • Be able to analyse and solve an actual problem of industrial relevance through application of systematic research and development processes, including advanced analytical, experimental and/or numerical methods and models

Type of instruction

Additional information

The project can be combined with up to 15 ECTS of courses, which reduces the ECTS of the project accordingly (e.g., a 20 ECTS project combined with 10 ECTS of course-work). The semester must add up to a total workload of 30 ECTS. The project may be finalized with a project report or in the form of a scientific paper with supporting appendices.

The extent of the project must reflect the allotted time in ECTS.
