Mechatronics and Physical AI is all about a robot’s hardware and the movements it makes. Without specialists in this field, a machine would not be able to move around and would therefore not even qualify as a robot!
What to expect
In this specialisation, you learn how to design and develop a robotic system with (physical) AI. It needs this to move and interact with the people or objects around it in an intelligent, effective and safe way. This means combining mechanics, electronics, control and computing. In this specialisation, you gain advanced knowledge in the field of mechatronics and get familiar with systems engineering, robot interaction, intelligent design, and machine learning. Typical research questions you might tackle in this specialisation involve modelling and simulation of designs; mechatronics, physical design and prototyping; and controller design.
- Modelling, Dynamics and Kinematics
- Mechanical Design Principles for Robotics
- Control System Design for Robotics
- Systems Identification and Machine Learning
- Software Development for Robotics
- Systems Engineering
Type of degree
On completing this master’s with a specialisation in Mechatronics and Physical Artificial Intelligence, you receive a Master’s degree in Robotics. Also, you can title yourself Master of Science (MSc). Your specialisation is mentioned specifically on your diploma supplement, highlighting your specialised knowledge and skills in Mechatronics and Physical Artificial Intelligence.
On graduating with this specialisation, you will be an expert in mechatronics and designing complex robotic (sub)systems. You can also get a job as a robotics systems engineer, combining your specialised knowledge with a broader view on other (robotics) disciplines.
