- Eindhoven, Netherlands
- Program Type:
- Study Abroad
- Degree Level:
- Academic Year, Fall Semester
- Program Description:
- Mechatronics engineers design or select sensors and actuators, develop control algorithms and use or develop advanced functional materials for the design of mechanical systems such as chassis stabilising systems, engine control units, disk drives, cameras, service and surgical robots. Very often mechatronics engineers are generalists rather than specialists. From design to making a robot: the bachelor program Mechatronics has a focus on robotics and control technology. The Bachelor program Mechatronics leads to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (BEng).

- Setting Description:
- The Eindhoven region, also known as the Brainport region of the Netherlands, is the most important technology and industrial center of the Netherlands. With 730,000 inhabitants and a workforce of 400,000. Eindhoven generates € 24 billion of GDP and € 55 billion in exports, one-quarter of the Dutch total. It is a manufacturing center in a high-cost country. By focusing on producing high-value, technology-based products, it is in competition with fast-growing manufacturing centers in nations with much lower costs. At the same time, however, Eindhoven is saddled with demographics familiar to Europe, in which a low birth rate and aging population is reducing the regional labor force. To win the battle for the talent that provides its competitive advantage, the region must make itself economically and socially attractive to knowledge workers from around the world and concentrate on innovation.
