A master’s degree in mechatronics will make you eligible for more interesting and challenging tasks in industry and business than with a bachelor's degree alone.

The Master's Programme in Mechatronics offered by the University of Agder addresses integration of mechanical engineering, instrumentation engineering, hydraulic and electric drive and industrial IT. You learn to use your knowledge about the interactions between these disciplines working with design and manufacture of products and processes.


In business and industry, both locally, nationally and internationally, there is great demand for engineers with this kind of background. The education is partly relevant to maritime and offshore equipment design and production. The interdisciplinary expertise will let you become a Mechatronics Engineer eligible for a wide range of jobs.
