Compulsory Module 3: Electrical Engineering (7 ECTS-Credits, 5 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Applying the theoretical basics in the area of electric machines, the students possess an advanced competence in the area of electrical engineering/drive engineering. Students have specialist knowledge in the area of vector analysis and are thus able to describe the electro-magnetic field. They are familiar with the physical/atomic basics of electrical engineering and understand the significance a nd importance of Maxwell¿s equations.
Compulsory Module 6: Industrial Mechatronics and Material Science 2 (9 ECTS-Credits, 6 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: The students have a detailed knowledge of the manufacturing processes that can be used for making mechatronic components. They are able to select suitable processes for specific tasks and to plan the manufacturing process for industrial production as well as to estimate the manufacturing cost. Students have practical skills in the field of mechatronics and are able to deal with and solve interdisciplinary tasks target-oriented by considering the sub-disciplines and their interactions. They are able to independently study the lab documents and to independently approach the tutorial with professional guidance. Students have an advanced knowledge of the structure of materials and of their mechanical characteristics. With regards to metallic materials, they are familiar with the micro-structures that are the result of alloys and warmth treatments and with their characteristics. Thanks to their deep understanding of the metallographic mechanisms regarding the mechanical characteristics like strength, deformability, creepage or fatigue, students are able to assess an individual load situation appropriately and to develop strategies for solving the problems. They also have an advanced knowledge of the different materials, from simple steel for construction or machine engineering, tool steel to synthetic materials and complex compound materials.
Compulsory Module 8: Biomedical Engineering 2 (9 ECTS-Credits, 6 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students have a command of the basic methods of creating, editing, analysing and visualising biomedical image data. Students are able to assess possibilities and limits of biomedical systems and components. They have the competence to independently study laboratory documents and to independently carry out the laboratory exercises under professional guidance. They know about the basic physiological principles and methods, concepts and systems of biomedical technology and their practical use in electro-cardiology, biomedical sensor systems and technical assist systems.
Compulsory Module 9: Master Thesis Defense (2.5 ECTS-Credits) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: positive completion of all compulsory modules,the necessary optional modules and the positive evaluation of the master thesis
Learning Outcome: To reflect on the master thesis in the context of the master programme mechtronics. The focus is on theoretical knowledge, methodology and the presentation of the results of the master thesis and presentation skills.
