About the Applied mechatronics course

During this five-day course, Sven Hol, Ph.D., will discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of the various disciplines within the field of mechatronics. As a participant you will familiarize yourselves with modelling, simulating and controlling mechatronic systems. This course will lead to more understanding of (complex) mechatronics systems and will make you more effective in the design and realization!

This course will give you the insights to understand the essence and structure of mechatronics systems in practice. After this course you will be able to:

  • Understand and discuss about the challenges within the related disciplines (mechanics, electronics, control engineering and computer science)
  • Apply the theoretical knowledge in practical mechatronic applications
  • Translate a mechatronic system (mechanics, actuators, amplifiers and sensors) towards models
  • Realize and optimize these models in Simulink and Matlab
  • Practical realization of an optimized mechatronic system based on the simulation results

The practical set up consists of a linear motion system being controlled in a feedback loop. The achieved performance of the system will be compared to the predicted performance according to the model.

The training is suitable for people working in the industry and who are already familiar with mechatronics. You work in a function like system architect, mechatronic designer, machine engineer, electrical engineer, software and firmware developer. The training assumes a higher education level (HBO+/BSc or MSc) and at least two years of work experience with mechatronics. The course is constructed in such a way that a specialist in one discipline can still understand the theory and practice of the other disciplines. After the course, you will be able to combine these less familiar disciplines with your own know-how.
