Topic outline

  • Mechatronics Project

    Starting lecture on Tuesday 11.1. will be in Teams. Please register in the course Teams using the code: 53o02np

    The aim of the Mechatronics Project course is to introduce the student into demanding mechatronics machine design and building using a practical project assignment. The projects are carried out as group assigments. Typical assignments are planning, building and testing of research equipment to be used in ongoing research projects.
    The topics for the projects are presented on the 1st lecture. Course staff will then form the project teams based on the students' project applications.
    At the end of the course the projects will be presented at the Mechatronic Circus and at the Baltic Mechatronics Symposium.

    If there are restrictions due to the covid-19 situation, the lectures will be in Teams. The project work will continue in the lab taking care of the safety instructions.
