About Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering



Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering is one of the few interdisciplinarities serving diverse domains of application and industry. It integrates mechanical, electronics, control, and computer engineering to develop new end-user products, production systems and automated service establishments that incorporate all those interfaces together. The research topics of the master’s program fall within the categories of:  

  • Factory and Process Automation.  
  • Advanced and Embedded Techniques in the Design and Development of Mechatronic Systems,  
  • Robotic Applications, 
  • Unmanned Vehicles, 
  • Advanced Control Algorithms,  
  • Control Techniques for Dynamic Systems,  
  • Adaptive Structures,  
  • Smart Materials and Structures, 
  • Optimization of Discrete-Event Systems. 

The set of skills that MECT students will acquire are the following:

  • Mastering existing mechatronics technologies and shall be able to improve, upgrade or even renovate them, to achieve host industry objectives. 
  • Acquiring the essential skills needed for embedded systems programming. 
  • Capable of designing, building, and dealing with advanced robotics systems either stationary or mobile robots. 
  • Ability to analyze/troubleshoot multi-disciplinary mechatronics system performance and analyze situations and problems as they learned them in small and final projects. 
  • Ability to take responsibility for a project in industrial manufacturing, research, and development. 
  • Ability to pursue a Ph.D. degree and adapt easily to working in new countries/new cultures/new disciplines and integrate multinational work teams (industry or universities) with the advantage of language skills and cultural knowledge gained during the master’s program. 
  • Understanding the principal operations of the mechatronics subsystems in a complex system. 
  • Recognizing potential or impending malfunctions and contacting expert assistance to keep the production line functioning and prevent production loss. 
  • Perform routine, preventative maintenance, localize and identify causes and sources of malfunctions possible. 
  • Understanding and implementing safety regulations required for the operation of the system. 

N.B: Students can apply for the EU4M Program - Joint master’s degree to obtain a dual degree with one of the three EU member universities (NU/HSKA – NU/UNIOVI – NU/ENSMM), by spending one year at Nile University and the second year at one of the three EU partner institutions.
