Mechatronics Engineering

Program Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronics Engineering has received comparatively little attention from engineering education researchers. For some years concerns have arisen about how best to prepare under-graduate engineers to work with advanced technologies in organisational contexts. With an ever-accelerating pace of change in industry, rapid expanding technology access, fast improving information and communication systems, globalisation of markets and business competition, resource limitations and rising customer expectations, engineers have had to adopt a new way of doing business. The pressing need for increased productivity as well as for the delivery of products of uniform high quality is turning industry more towards computer-based automation.

Mechatronics was one of the first programs of study introduced at UBT with the support of Vienna Technical University and European Commission. Support from international partners has been essential in establishing a pioneering field of study in Kosovo.  The program opened in 2005 and was accredited by the Kosovo Accreditation Agency in 2009. The main aim of the program is to offer a synergy of core technologies of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer science, instrumentation and controls to respond to the emerging needs of Kosovo small and medium enterprises focused on manufacturing. The development of mechatronics is therefore crucial to competitiveness of Kosovo industry. The didactic concept stresses the importance of a multidisciplinary integrated approach to enable students to gain a competitive edge in the modern manufacturing era.

The structure of the program enables the student to become familiar with core aspects of mechanics, computer science, electronics and management. It has been harmonised with EU best practices to enable student and staff mobility. Admission into the program is opened to all students that have met the minimum national and institutional criteria. Having spent two academic years in core engineering subjects, students are offered the opportunity to specialisze in an area of sector during the third year namely mechatronics engineering, automation, product design, telecommunication, biomedical engineering, electronics and aeronautics.  Students get access to some of the most sophisticated infrastructure – mechatronics laboratories, materials laboratories, biomedical laboratory, medical engineering and robotics. The UBT Library situated in Innovation Campus is one of the biggest of this sort in Western Balkans.
