The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering 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 the industry and beyond the traditional industrial domain.
Students will develop a range of modern methods, including Quality Function Deployment (QFD), for the 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 Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering is particularly addressed to students who demonstrate a thorough grounding in scientific disciplines (e.g. Mathematics, Physics) and basic knowledge in Industrial Engineering.
The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering is a two-year, full-time program taught in English.
Overall, students will be provided with a global system-level view of the design of mechanical systems and will acquire the ability to understand the impact of new technologies on products and production systems as well as managerial skills to organize projects with a complete view of the entire life cycle of products.
The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering is designed to respond to the expanding demand of highly-qualified professionals who efficiently deal with the development of new products and new concepts, the periodic and increasingly frequent renewal of existing product lines, the renewal of methods and technologies of production, and related capital goods for production.

The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering consists of 120 ECTS–credits for a two-year program. Students will undertake to demand full-time learning activities: attendance at lectures is strongly recommended. All courses are taught in English. The educational offer is organized in 3 Curricula:
Electronics and Robotics
Credits required to complete the Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering: 120 ECTS.
Notes: according to the Sorbonne (1988) and Bologna (1999) declarations university-level study programs in the European Higher Education Area are structured in university credits (ECTS). One university credit corresponds to 25 hours of student workload, time for personal preparation included. The annual average workload for a full-time student is conventionally fixed at 60 credits.
The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering aims at shaping competitive mechatronics engineers, who are increasingly demanded in the areas of innovation of products and production systems, intelligent mechanics, advanced design, planning, and management of manufacturing processes and complex systems.
Students who have graduated with an MSc in Mechatronics Engineering are in great demand for a variety of careers, including manufacturing industries (for example, specializing in high-tech products), basic and applied research, engineering firms, consulting and services companies, business units at the level of corporate responsibility (for example, in production, logistics, quality control, marketing, etc.), and public institutions.
The Master’s degree program in Mechatronics Engineering has been tailored to allow students to progress to continue their studies at the Doctoral level abroad, elsewhere in Italy or within the UniTrento PhD. program Mechatronics Engineering and Control.
