Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished higher education in Bachelor's degree programme.
Regulations:
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VŠB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The goal of the master study programme Mechatronics is to prepare the graduates which are able to work in research and development, to do the design of mechatronic systems for different production applications supporting different technologies. The profile of the master involves the knowledge of the integrated design of the mechatronic systems which consist of the mechanical subsystem, electrical subsystem, actuators and control system. The graduates have a good command of the CAD methods, computational modelling and simulation and control design.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
Knowledge:
The graduates have the knowledge important for the design and development of mechatronic systems. They have knowledge from automatic control systems design, applied mechanics, electronics and microprocessor technics, signal processing. They are experienced from actuator technology, control of electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic drives, measurement and sensors.
Skills:
The graduates are able to analyse the dynamic properties of the complex structure system and use the mathematical – physical modelling and simulation of dynamic systems. They know how to use the CAD tools for design of mechatronic systems, control algorithms and software.
General competencies:
The background from electrical, mechanical and control engineering allows them to work with complex structure systems and to consider the interaction of different dynamic subsystems in the design phase of the new mechatronic system and using the suitable control to achieve the required behaviour of the final system. They are ready for the team work, to communicate the technical problems with other specialized groups.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
The multidisciplinary education is a great advantage for the work in different areas of engineering. They can be members of the project teams, are ready to start the professional career in R&D in mechanical engineering, automotive industry, electrical engineering, IT.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Examination regulations, assesment and grading are described in the Study and Examination Rules.
