Studying the two-year Master’s programme Electro-Mechanical Systems Design at Aalborg University, you gain knowledge within the areas of mechatronic system design, information technology, control theory, and modelling and analysis of electro-mechanical systems. This enables you to take part in interdisciplinary technical development and research projects.You learn to optimise constructions and to create new products and systems.
During the programme, emphasis is put on disciplines such as modelling of multi-domain systems, motion control, simulation, system optimisation, and applied control engineering.In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with complex and often interdisciplinary issues in relation to electro-mechanical system design, that challenge you to use all of your collected knowledge to come up with possible solutions. You are encouraged to occasionally collaborate with external organisations and businesses in your projects to get an idea of the work processes and current issues in the industry. This will prepare you better for your own work life after you graduate.
This is a full-time study programme, which is characterised by problem based project work in groups. You will be working closely with other students most of the time, and you are required to be present at the university on a daily basis and spend a vast majority of your day there.
Graduates from the programme have many possible career paths. Many graduates pursue a technical career in either industry or academia, whereas others favour project management positions.
Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the “real world”.
In the wind turbine and in the energy industry, you can take part in the technical development and research, and you can be the technical manager of development projects. You can also choose to work in a small company as a project manager or a central project worker.
