Computer  Engineering and Mechatronics – a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanical systems

Mechatronics is a relatively new discipline of the applied science, created as a result of deep merging of different fields of technology, such as electronics, mechanics, automation and robotics.  Today, in our everyday life, in industry and science we use equipment of very complex structure using state-of-the-art mechanical engineering solutions as well as sophisticated control systems managed by modern electronic hardware and extended software. The aim of MSc studies on mechatronics is to prepare students for independent creative work in scope of analysis and design of mechanical equipment, mechanical design, design rules of electronic systems and industrial automatic control systems.
The range of compulsory, optional lectures and laboratory classes was selected to broaden the knowledge of the BSc graduates by elements necessary to understand more complex subjects discussed during MSc studies.
Significant advantages of the mechatronics degree programme at University of Economy are modern lab facilities worth mentioning here are the laboratories of microprocessor systems, control systems and renewable energy sources. The gem among the labs is the robotics laboratory, equipped both with professional robots as well as with robot sets for individual assembly and programming by students.
We also have the CAD/CAM systems laboratory and multimedia laboratory equipped with Apple computers.

Characteristics of the graduate

A graduate of this field of study acquires knowledge on mechatronics in a broad sense. This knowledge, in particular, covers mechanics, mechanical engineering and machine operation, electronics, informatics, automatics and robotics. The syllabus of the studies includes subjects the purpose of which is to properly organize and consolidate theoretical knowledge in scope of mathematics, physics, management and law. The objective is to provide students with general knowledge so they understand the social constraints of engineering.
A graduate of the MSc course in the field of mechatronics is also familiar with trends, latest technological and engineering achievements as well as technology transfer in the field of mechatronics. In the course of studies, students acquire skills allowing them to solve typical professional problems as well as problems that require non-standard solutions. They also learn how to acquire information from professional literature, databases and other sources as well as how to properly interpret, integrate and assess its quality and usefulness.

Teaching staff

The teaching staff of the “mechatronics” course include scientists with large scientific, teaching and organisational experience who gained recognition both in Poland and abroad.
The staff consists of authors of numerous Polish and international publications, members of scientific associations, highly regarded experts and consultants of numerous scientific disciplines.
The key part of staff includes practitioners who are employed in or cooperate with leading companies of the region. The distinguishing feature of the human resources policy of University of Economy in Bydgoszcz, compared to other universities is the fact that we employ experts who teach individual specialized subjects.

Education process

The studies last 7 semesters - BA degree and 4 semesters - MA degree. The education process includes lectures, laboratory classes, seminars as well as design classes with high emphasize put on the student"s independent work.

Labour market

Complexity of CAD/CAM systems requires the engineer to acquire high engineering competence and appropriate knowledge as well as computer skills.
This results in high, unsatisfied demand for specialists in that field. One can also observe fast development of labour market sector and demand for specialists in the field of power supply systems based on renewable energy sources.
Highly developed tooling industry companies declare demand for engineers familiar with mechanical engineering and machine operation as well as plastic processing.
Graduates of MSc studies can work as design engineers,  quality control laboratories staff as well as in companies providing expert opinions.
