Rasmus Posted September 26, 2017 Share Posted September 26, 2017 Hello everyone. I have decided after many months of contemplating that I want to go to the US to study for my master's degree. I am currently at 5. semester at Aalborg University in Denmark, studying a bachelor in mechatronics engineer (it is called BSc in energy at home). Upon searching for the universities that offer mechatronics engineer, I have encountered some issues, and I am left a bit dazzled. I will in the folllowing section leave some of the courses that I have finished at Aalborg university (to give you an idea what a mechatronics engineer is doing): (Insert all the courses that every single engineer has to have pre- 4. semester) (Thermodynamics, mechanics, mathematic stuff, basic physics, electrical circuit analysis, etc.) 4. semester: Control of enery conversions systems Fundamental control theory Real time systems and programming language 5. semester: Analysis of mechatronic system Power electronics Electrical machines Numerical methods 6. semester Design of a mechatronic system Sustainable Energy Systems: Economics, Environment, and Public Regulation Design and control of hydraulic systems State space and digital control At Aalborg university, students are divided into groups of 4-7 people, who are to write one project doing each semester. Each semester comes with a different topic for the projects. (i.e. Modelling and analysis of simple enery conversion system) This accounts for half of the units, required in the semester. If i would have taken a master's degree in mechatronics: Control of a hydraulic actuated mechanical structure Dynamic modelling of electrical machines and control systems Non-linear control and multi-body systems Probability theory, stochastic processes and advances statistics Advanced control of electrical machines Control of Electrical Drive Systems and Converters Multi variable control Optimisation theory and reliability Master's thesis. You hopefully get the idea by now. The question you have been waiting for is then: At what universities is it possible to have courses that resemble a mechatronics engineer as much as possible? I have been looking at many of the top universities in the US, but I usually only find mechanical engineering, in which there is a little bit mechatronics, but mostly mechanic stuff. Can you guys help me find a university which offers hardcore mechatronics engineering? (I have been looking at Berkeley which has some courses that fits into the mechatronics engineering. I hope you can help me, Sincerely, an excited dane wanting to go to the US! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
