As a graduate in Electro-Mechanical Systems Design programme offered by Aalborg University, you will be able to engineer systems and devices where mechanics, electronics, and intelligent control systems interrelate.

About

Studying the Electro-Mechanical Systems Design programme offered by 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.

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.

Careers

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.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    88

    The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.

    Schedule TOEFL®
  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score (Grade C):

    180

    C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

Academic Requirements

  • Admission to the Master's programme in Electro-Mechanical System Design requires a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing or the like.
  • Students with another Bachelor degree may, upon application to the Board of Studies, be admitted following a specific academic assessment if the applicant is considered as having comparable educational prerequisites. The University can stipulate requirements concerning conducting additional exams prior to the start of study.
