About

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.

Overview

Introduction

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 mechanical/mechatronic industrial products and go beyond 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 of Industrial Engineering.

Program Overview

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.
