prospects for Robotics & Mechatronics

Graduates from the Robotics & Mechatronics specialisation will find job opportunities in research and development in companies were control and automation play an important role. Just look around you and you will see that the number of application areas is almost infinite. Think about car companies (Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Tesla), aircraft companies (Boeing, Airbus), drones (Swiss UAV AG), companies in production machines (ASML, Omron), agriculture (Harvest Automation). Also small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are looking for Systems & Control Engineers. In Twente there are a number of these companies that started as a spin-off of the university: Demcon, Imotec, Controllab Products.

You can expect a career in the R&D department of a major company (Philips, ASML, Thales) or with a research group at a university. Your thorough knowledge and experience of practical applications also means you are well-suited to a position in a small or medium sized enterprise (e.g. Demcon).
