Career Options: experts in robotic warfare systems development; medicine, namely: in the fields of surgical robotic technologies, development of various types of exoskeletons and mobile platforms for patients transportation, as well as robot limbs construction; in research institutions and design offices (design and construction of complex technical systems). Therefore, experts in Biomechatronics are in great demand wherever there are machines and equipment that needs to be properly maintained and duly repaired.
In a world of fast-paced science and technology, one could face difficulties in finding a stable and rewarding career. The only way to keep up with the times and reach professional and financial success is to become an expert in the field which will remain relevant for decades to come.
Biomechatronics is a powerful industry which will definitely remain significant to the global economy in the many years ahead. So if you want to have a profitable and sustainable career, this Program is for you!
Biomechatronics is a relatively new science that studies the compatibility of biological organisms with mechatronic systems. This field of studies emerged due to the recent development of nanotechnologies and cybernetics. Nowadays Biomechatronics becomes more and more essential for people's lives. For example, recent years saw the brisk development of man-operated medical robots. Just imagine, the surgeon is staying behind the glass windows of an operating ward with a remote control device while a complex robot equipped with multiple cameras is performing a heart surgery. Impressive, isn't it?
- Prepares students for a multi-disciplinary engineering specialty needed in its ever-growing applications in consumer products, manufacturing, transportation systems and other industries.
- Teaches to combine mechanical, electric, and electronic subsystems to create single controllable systems.
- Offers in-depth knowledge of how to apply design synthesis and analysis technique within a coherent range of subjects in mechatronic engineering, utilize specific software tools to support mechatronic system synthesis and analysis activity.
The student will learn
- classifications, current condition and future prospects of modern robotics, mechanics, and biomechanics;
- controlling systems of the modern manipulating robots;
- to construct simple models of robot controlling systems via programmable microcontrollers;
- images construction methods based on using of physical phenomena when displaying the surrounding reality;
- data processing instruments in the machine vision systems and measurement data processing methods;
- to validate the selection of measurement data processing algorithms;
- and more.
- System Technical Solutions in Mechatronics
