Part 1 of the course 'Mechatronics system design' focusses on the essential basics in any multi-disciplinary development of mechatronic (motion) system. In this applied mechatronics training, participants will acquire broad technical knowledge beyond the limits of their own discipline. 

What makes this training unique:

  • The leading training with over 2000 enthusiastic participants.
  • Mix of well-known university professors and industry experts.
  • Variety of practical experiences and lessons learned from multiple application areas.
  • Recommended by euspen & DSPE (European/Dutch Society for precision engineering).


  • If on-site training is not feasible, we will transition to a live, interactive online (virtual) or hybrid format. If this transition is necessary, we will contact you in advance for your approval.
  • The training is also available for in-company sessions.


After completion of the full course 'Mechatronics system design', the participant will be able to make a more effective contribution to the realization of mechatronic constructions because he has a better understanding of adjacent disciplines (terminology, basics, solution space, challenges, ...) and the interdependencies between disciplines.

Intended for

This course is intended for architects, designers, engineers and project leaders with various technical background who are involved in the multi-disciplinary development of products/devices or equipment.

Prerequisites: Technical education (BSc or higher).
