Mechatronics encompasses a range of technologies that empower a variety of daily life applications ranging from automation of household equipment through to “smart” manufacturing, self-driving cars, surgical robots and robotic space exploration. Delivered at Ashesi University by faculty from Ashesi and ETH Zurich, this Master’s Programme equips students with specialist competences and wide range of skills to pursue a career in this dynamic field. The programme was developed and is implemented as a partnership between the two universities and our seven industry partners.
The curriculum integrates knowledge of core areas in automation and production engineering with mathematics, physics, and numerical methods to develop a better understanding of mechatronics applications in a wide range of industry sectors. Selected modules from humanities, social and political sciences, economics and management will also help deepen student understanding of the broad interdependencies between engineering and their social context.
