This program combines science with business, enabling you to manage technology, design, and people while optimizing production.
You will make decisions across the organization. Thus, a mechatronics engineer is able to think holistically and to participate in a company’s development focusing on technical, business, and social matters.
The program provides you with broad engineering-related knowledge through basic courses in mechanics, electronics, programming, mathematics, and physics and you will gain insight in marketing, design, and manufacturing.
Part of the teaching is carried out together with other engineering study programs at the university campus in Sønderborg.
In this program, you can choose to focus on Mechatronics Engineering or you can specialize by choosing a profile in either Mechanical engineering, Electronics engineering, or Embedded systems engineering.
Each of the seven semesters has a specific theme and structure:
Semester 1 Discover Mechatronics
Semester 2 Build Mechatronics
Semester 3 Develop Mechatronics
Semester 4 Construct Mechatronics/Mechanics/Electronics/Embedded Systems
Semester 5 Experts in Teams
Semester 6 Internship
Semester 7 Final project
The program consists of both lectures and project work with other students and industry as well as a full semester internship, where you will work on a real-life project for a company

The University of Southern Denmark welcomed the first students onto the campus in Odense in September 1966, and things have been developing by leaps and bounds ever since. We now have five faculties with more than 27,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad, and more than 4,000 employees distributed across our main campus in Odense and regional campuses in Slagelse, Kolding, Esbjerg, and Sønderborg. Several international studies document that we conduct world-class research and are one of the top fifty young universities in the world.
Over the years, the University of Southern Denmark has interwoven many lives. The roughly five years in which a student invests in a university education will lay the groundwork for the rest of his or her life. And with around 115 different study programs in the fields of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, and engineering, graduates of the University of Southern Denmark are now members of virtually every profession in the international community.
