Mechatronics >>Master Program

Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering is a one year full time program consisting of two terms of 18 weeks each. However, graduates with the minimum of five year experience may be allowed to register as part time students.
Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary study dealing with the integration of mechanical devices, actuators, sensors, electronics, intelligent controllers and computers. The program is designed to provide in-depth knowledge in the fundamentals, design, analysis, and operation of mechatronic systems. Besides the normal lectures for a typical program for Master of Science, a salient feature of the program is the requirement of completing a module in the form of a one-year Mechatronic project which can be jointly supervised by an academic staff and a supervisor from industry.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

To graduate, a student needs to accumulate a total of 40 credit hours and obtain a minimum of 50% marks in each of 5 compulsory subjects and 3 elective subjects. In addition, successful completion of mechatronics system design, which is a 8 Credit Hours project spread over a period of one year, is also compulsory. Students can choose to propose their own Industrial Project in the area of mechatronics for consideration and approval by the Post-graduate Studies & Research Committee of the department.

PERIOD OF CANDIDATURE

The maximum period of candidature for full-time study is two years and for part-time study is four years. Full-time students typically should be able to complete their requirements between one to one and a half years while the part-time students may take two and a half years.
