Topic outline

  • Mechatronics Project

    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 results are reported in the form of conference paper.
    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.

    14th Mechatronics Circus will be held Thursday 11.4. from 10 am to 3 pm at K3 building and it's surroundings.
