Master of Electromechanical Engineering Technology

Mechanical design, automation and energy conversion are the cornerstones of this programme. Mechanical design begins with an idea, which is then shaped into a graphical design and executed into a finished product through a choice of materials, simulation, and production techniques. Automation describes a wide range of technologies that reduce human intervention and improve the overall efficiency of various engineering processes. Energy conversion comprises all aspects of energy efficiency in this process.

About the programme

Electromechanics sets the world in motion. In this programme, you will  learn to realise and control movements in machines and devices. During lectures and labs, you will learn about the state of the art in the field of hydraulic drives and servomotors, and also how to devise a creative concept and develop it into a usable design in accordance with current standards using powerful calculation software.

You can specialise in one of the following options:

  • Option Mechatronics - This option relates to designing, developing, and optimising automated mechanical machines. Supported by a strong background in electricity and mechanics, you dive more deeply into aspects such as advanced design methods, electronic operations, controls, measures and drives, data communication, and visualisation methods.
  • Option Management - This option provides a broad introduction into contemporary management theory and practice. You define and compare key aspects, basic concepts and approaches in management and strategy and are able to analyse and interpret the complexity of managing an enterprise/organisation.
Besides the specialisation option, you also have a unique opportunity to complement your programme with a dedicated focus. Within each focus you are getting acquainted with state-of-the-art technologies, methodologies and applications in a specific research area, making use of the renowned expertise of the different research groups over the different campuses of the Faculty of Engineering Technology.

The following focuses are offered:

  • Clinical Engineering 
  • Advanced Robotics
  • Ecotechnologies 
  • Vehicle Design 
  • Digital and Lightweight Manufacturing
Career perspectives

This master’s programme opens up a whole spectrum of professional possibilities. Masters in Engineering Technology are active in the most diverse positions, sectors and professions all over the world. They are the engine of innovation in businesses and society. Depending on their interest, their engineering profile can range from technological expert to company manager.
