In 2014 Eindhoven University of Technology* (TU/e) initiated The High Tech Systems Center (HTSC). This Center aims to understand, teach and innovate system synthesis and design of complex equipment, instruments, robotic and manufacturing systems and systems-of-systems. The HTSC employs in-depth understanding of the classical engineering fields, together with model based systems engineering to conceive, predict and verify cutting-edge system functionalities and architecture.
In 2015 HTSC initiated a new 2-year post master (PDEng) program to educate highly skilled design engineers for the high-tech systems industry. This program focuses on system engineering in a mechatronics context and is known as Mechatronic Systems Design (MSD). Working with industry is an essential ingredient of the program. It is organized with close links to and cooperation with other successful PDEng programs as Software Technology (ST) and Automotive Systems Design (ASD). Officially MSD is positioned as a sub-track of ASD.
2-year post-master PDEng program
Mechatronic Systems Design
The next round of this 2-year program, accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education, starts on October 29, 2018. This program focuses on systems design and architecture in an high-tech systems context and trains graduates from related disciplines to become the professional system designers and architects that the industry needs to conceive its new, innovative products and who can participate in and/or lead the multidisciplinary teams that realize these.
The program is devoted to deepening, broadening and reinforcing Mechatronics related technological knowledge and competencies, as well as personal and professional skills. This program with a unique structure consists of 4 educational blocks followed by a 1 year individual design project in industry. In the first 4 blocks about half the time is spent on lectures, workshops and training, and the other half on projects, solving a real-life problem from one of the industrial partners. The lecturers, who mostly have an extensive experience in industry and who cover the theory on topics such as systems architecture, design, and problem solving, return as coach during the projects to help translate the theory to practical solutions. Projects are selected from different domains and address various technological areas to both provide multidisciplinary exposure and enhance cross-domain thinking. The lectures are in part general, in part tailored to the problem domain coming up. In this set-up the trainee gets the opportunity to experience the different roles that make a good team.
The Post-Master's Program Mechatronic Systems Design is open to recent university graduates, in particular to Master's graduates from one of the following fields: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Applied Physics, Systems & Control or comparable.
The program is internationally oriented and taught in English. The candidate should furthermore have:
