Aims and Objectives

UBT BSc Mechatronics Aims and Objectives

 

 

The study programme at UBT aims to offer a more balanced approach through combining contemporary mechatronics systems with economics, management, legal ethical and organisational psychology and behavior to better prepare graduates for addressing organisational competitiveness while recognizing developments in the context where they operate.The study programme aims to produce engineers who are committed to a career in mechatronics with a variety of different employers in Kosovo.

 

The programme emphasis the importance of producing original thinkers who are able to take an imaginative approach to the solution of a wide range of engineering problems.  The study provides an academic qualifications underpinned by mathematics and science, integrated with business management and information technology enabling them to progress to the related professional occupations. Furthermore, the programme also offers the a social dimension to enable students to grasp and legal and ethical standards of the profession and provides the opportunity to specialize in leadership and management of the engineering process.

 

This programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, skills and other attributes in the following areas:

 

Knowledge and understanding

 

Students will acquire knowledge and understanding of:

  • The fundamental principles of mathematics as applied to analysis, problem solving and design
  • The fundamental concepts of mechanics, themodynamics, electronics and engeneering science in relation to the analysis, design and implementation of mechatronic systems
  • The use of information technology for quantitative analysis, simulation, system design, project management and effective communication
  • The charachteristics and behaviour of engeneering materials related to component design, material selection and structural integrity of mechanical systems
  • The theory of design with respect to the production of specialisations, design or manufacture and the design of mechanical/mechatronic systems with an appreciation of the modern urse of design elements
  • The funamentals of business economics, outlining the framework for commercial engeneering practice along with implications of economic theory in the context of business practice and project management.

 

Skills

 

Students will develop skills to:

  • Select and apply the appropriate mathematical methods in support of the analysis of practical and theoretical engineering problems
  • Apply the principles of mechatronics developed through the engineering sciences to solve practical problems, model analysis and design engineering processes, systems and products
  • Select and apply the computer based mthods associated with the modelling and analysis of engeneering problems and the design of engeneering systems
  • Apply information technology for effective communication and presentation of engeneering data and design solutions
  • Use principles of design to analyse systems, processes and components and use it to modify, develop, design and create new products and engineering systems
  • Use appropriate software and techniques to identify, model and simulate complex mechatronic systems
  • Use appropriate test and measurement equipment to obtain, analyse and interpret results from a wide range of establihed and experimental laboratory based systems
  • Apply an integrated or systems approach to engeneering design and produce innovative solutions to a wide range of engeneering problems using established techniques to test and evaluate design ideas

 

Other competencies and attributes

 

Students will acquire and develop transferable skills such that they are able to:

  • Use analytical skills for sorting and coherently present data as part of problem solving process
  • Use information technolgy to simulate systms, analyse data and design solutions to management issues
  • Communicate clearly and effectively using evidence,graphics and writing skills
  • Be able to apply system and integrative approach to workplace requirements
  • Use time and resource management techniques to meet project management milestones
  • Produce integrated written reports and presentations
