The Mechatronics Engineering program at the University of Trento is designed to enhance the prospects of future mechatronics engineers and efficiently enables them to plan, understand, and implement R&D (Research and Development) projects for new products in industry and beyond the traditional industrial domain.


Students will develop a range of modern methods, including Quality Function Deployment (QFD), for design, development and, more generally, management of the entire life cycle of new industrial products, which are composed of a physical-mechanical base integrated with automation technologies and new materials, and their related development and manufacturing resources, tools, and processes (Concurrent Engineering). On these grounds students acquire the ability to create new industrial products of mechanical/mechatronic type and beyond the simple industrial implementation.

The Mechatronics Engineering program at the University of Trento is particularly addressed to students who demonstrate a thorough grounding in scientific disciplines (e.g. Mathematics, Physics) and a basic knowledge in Industrial Engineering.


Mechatronics engineers are increasingly demanded in the areas of innovation of products and production systems, intelligent mechanics, advanced design, planning and management of manufacturing process and complex systems.

Moreover, they are recruited by manufacturing industries (e.g. specializing in hightech products), basic and applied research centres, engineering firms, consulting and services companies, business units at the level of corporate responsibility (e.g. in production, logistics, quality control, marketing, etc.), and public institutions.

Graduates may pursue a PhD in Trento (Materials, Mechatronics and Systems Engineering) or at international level.
