Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished higher education in Bachelor's degree programme.
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VSB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The goal of the study programme Mechatronics is to prepare the graduates for R&D activities in the field of Mechatronics, to be able to design mechatronic systems for the applications in different productions and for different technologies. The profile of the graduate involves the methods of the integrated design of the mechatronic system, that consists of mechanical subsystem, electrical subsystem, actuators and control system. The graduates know the methods of computer aided design, mathematical modelling and computer simulation as well as control systems design.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The graduates of the study programme Mechatronics have knowledge important for the design of mechatronic systems. They know a lot about automatic control systems, applied mechanics, electronics and microprocessor systems, measurements and signal processing. They have experience with electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic drives and their control systems, next with measurements and sensors and diagnostic signal processing.
The graduates are able to analyse the dynamic properties of the complex structure systems and use the methods of mathematical-physical modelling and simulation of dynamic systems. They know, how to use the CAD software for design of mechatronic systems, control algorithms and software for data acquisition, monitoring and visualisation of technological processes. They are ready to design the measurement of important variables of the mechatronic system and to design the identification experiment of the dynamic properties of the controlled systems. Based on the dynamic analysis they are able to design the control system using PLC, industrial PC or embedded control systems.
General competencies:
The knowledge from the electrical, mechanical and control systems makes possible to take into the account the complex structure of the mechatronic system and consider the interactions of different dynamic subsystems during the design phase of the new mechatronic system and using the suitable designed control system to achieve the desired dynamic properties of the final mechatronic system. The graduates are ready for the team work, to discuss technical problems with other specialized groups.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Interdisciplinary education is a great advantage for the future work of the graduates in different areas in mechanical and electrical engineering. The graduates can become the members of the project teams and are ready to start their professional career in research and development in engineering, automotive industry, IT and production of different kind.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Examination regulations, assesment and grading are described in the Study and Examination Rules.
Course block: Compulsory - all courses are compulsory.
Course block: Choice-compulsory - student has to choose at least one course from the list of courses.
Course block: Optional - student can choose any course from the list of courses.
IMPORTANT: Student has to select so many courses to reach 30 ECTS credits per semester. Rules in detail and convenient selection of courses can be consulted with the programmme director.
Bellow stated courses are assigned for the degree studies only. Students coming to VSB-TUO for an exchange stay must select courses from the List of courses for exchange students.
