Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved in the project module Analysis of a mechatronic system or similar.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Have knowledge about model-based design of a mechatronic system
  • Have knowledge about how the control design is a central and integrated part of the development process for a mechatronic system
  • Have knowledge about scientific methods and theories compared to the semester theme


  • Be able to conduct synthesis and design of (fundamental) mechatronic systems and components and asses the applicability of different solution concepts
  • Be able to analyse the interactions and limitations of different technologies in the design process
  • Have acquired experience with experimental work supporting the design of a mechatronic system
  • Be able to analyse and assess obtained results from simulations and experiments


  • Be able to handle complex and development-oriented situations related to studies and work within the energy technical area, with special emphasis on mechatronic systems
  • Have acquired the ability to professionally enter into interdisciplinary collaboration in the area of energy technology
  • Be able to identify own learning needs and structure learning in different environments in energy engineering
  • Be able to transform academic knowledge and skills in design of mechatronic systems to a practical problem and process the problem

Type of instruction

Problem based and project oriented work in project groups. Teaching is in English and/or Danish depending on the participation of international students, or if the lecturer is of foreign origin.
