Chapter 9 The Programme Specific Part of the Curriculum for CIVILINGENIØR, CAND.POLYT. I MEKATRONIK Master of Science in Engineering Mechatronics Applicable to students admitted September 2015 onwards The curriculum is divided into general provisions (Chapters 1-8), a programme specific part (Chapter 9) and the module descriptions for the subjects studied for each programme. Students should familiarise themselves with all three parts in order to acquire a full overview of the rules that apply throughout the study programme. 1 Job Profiles An engineer with a Master of Engineering degree in Mechatronics from The University of Southern Denmark has a broad knowledge of mechanical-, electronic- and software engineering. Furthermore, the student has the possibility of specializing into one of the profiles: Micro- and Nanotechnology, Embedded Control Systems, Modelling and Control of Mechatronic Systems or Power Electronics. The study programme focuses on product development. The mechatronics engineer will typically find employment in companies which develop and sell mechatronic products. With broad general knowledge and special key competences the mechatronic engineer can occupy many different positions. Typical job profiles include: Research and Development University positions PhD programmes Project manager Consultant Project sales Teaching The mechatronic engineer will typically start the career as a research and development engineer and will, in the course of a few years, have the opportunity of combining the technical work with managerial work. The mechatronic engineer often participates in development processes across organizations and is involved in collaboration with external companies, nationally and internationally. Alternatively, the mechatronic engineer can become a specialist and do research within specific technologies or start up his/her own company.
