Overview

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 is made possible through the support of our partners.

The programme 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. Together with our industry partners, students will also be a part of a programme designed to ensure relevance to the industrial development of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Programme structure

Advanced Core Modules form the foundation of the programme, developing methodological competence in design and analysis of mechanical systems, together with programming and deployment of embedded devices for rapidly expanding applications in a host of industrial sectors.

Mechatronics and Control Modules provide knowledge in the application of innovative robotic and control system solutions including data-driven and machine learning techniques to existing systems and modern engineering systems.

Energy and Production Systems deepen your understanding of renewable energy technologies and propulsion systems in product development and process chain planning, providing the competence to propose appropriate and effective design improvements and mitigation strategies.

Engineering in Perspective provides context to the technical knowledge, training students in leadership, public policy, corporate social responsibility and international cooperation in preparation for influential careers that contribute towards the sustainable industrial development of Africa.

Over the last year of the programme, students will gain hands-on experience through an internship where they will apply their acquired knowledge and skill, and research experience through a professional project and Master thesis where they will work on a project linked to one of our industry partners and/or research groups.
