The Electrical Engineering - Mechatronics Engineering programme at Reykjavík University combines a solid theoretical foundation in physical science and mathematics, with engineering design and entrepreneurship.


Mechatronics is the combination of electrical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering and focuses on automation, sensors, data acquisition and analysis, actuators and control. 

The course is offered within the mechanical- and electrical engineering department and is organized in close relationship with computer science. The main aim of the course is to bring the three disciplines together in order to solve real-world problems in robotics and mechatronics.

There is an emphasis on machine learning, computer engineering, computer vision, system dynamics and control. A variety of topical courses are on offer, including Linear Dynamical Systems, Data Mining and Machine Learning, Computer Vision Applications in addition to recommending various courses in from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering.
