In the course of the electronic revolution at the end of the 20th century, mechanical engineering was reinvented as the backbone of industrial production. The result is mechatronics, a synergistic combination of mechanical components with electronic and IT systems. This technological integration forms new areas of application like electrical and digital technology in machine communication and control.

With the introduction of the Master program in Mechatronics & Smart Technologies, MCI has filled a gap in the educational offering in the west of Austria. With its international orientation and a consistent focus on practical relevance, the program makes a significant contribution to the goal of establishing the Tyrol as a high-tech location with the ability to compete at the international level and defy the fluctuations of the business cycle. With the implementation of the majors in mechanical and electrical engineering and the specialization in computational mechanics at our partner campus in Paris, MCI continues its way as spear head of the Tyrolean technology offensive.

The goal of the Master program in particular is to equip graduates with a competence in mechatronics that is more than the sum of its parts, i.e. mechanical engineering, electronics and IT. Integration of these three pillars is the key to smart technologies as robotics, automated code generation, multi-physical simulation, systems in systems and smart automation, and their application in electro mobility, industry 4.0 and energy efficiency.

With supporting classes in Leadership, Strategic Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship, this study program opens up perspectives for knowledge-based careers in the manufacturing and service industries worldwide.

Contents

The Master program in Mechatronics & Smart Technologies lasts four semesters comprising 915 hours of classes.

A semester of the full-time program comprises 15 weeks of lectures. The winter semester starts at the beginning of October until the end of January and the summer semester starts in March and lasts until the end of June.
Classes are entirely taught in English, attendance is required from Monday to Friday with additional block classes as well as project and laboratory work.

For the part-time program, the semesters last 20 weeks, from the beginning of September until the middle of February for the winter semester, and from the end of February until the middle of July for the summer semester. Classes are mainly taught in German but also partly in English. Attendance is required on Fridays from 1.30 to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there are additional block classes as well as project and laboratory work, etc.

Mission & Goals

Electrical Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and engineering electromagnetics, with particular focus on electric power systems, electrical machines and their control, electronic power converters, electrical transportation systems, electrical and electronic measurements, circuit theory and electromagnetic compatibility.
An electrical engineer has a wide background of knowledge that is necessary to address ever increasing challenges of the professional and research activities. These activities span not only in the traditional field of electricity generation, transmission and distribution, but also in the multi-faceted reality of industrial and home electrical appliances and systems, the electric systems in the transportation and health-care sectors, the electromagnetic compatibility, and the measurement and diagnosis techniques, just to mention some of the most relevant possible fields of activity.
A wide and in-depth knowledge of mathematics and physics is the essential background of graduates’ qualification in electrical engineering. Fundamental is also the background in computer science, automation and electronics applied to the different areas of electrical engineering.

The programme is entirely taught in English

Career Opportunities

There is a steady high demand for electrical engineers: in 2010, the Master of Science graduated of that year were 60, whilst the Politecnico di Milano’s Career Service received 546 requests for employment of electrical engineers. According to the Technical Report of the Evaluation Committee of Politecnico di Milano, 88% of the Master of Science graduated in Electrical Engineer in 2007, interviewed in December 2008, declared that they would have applied again to the same Electrical Engineering Programme and the 90% of the interviewed graduated declared to have a stable, full-time employment.

Presentation

See http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/uploads/media/Electrical_eng_smartgrid.pdf
This track of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering provides tools to manage the new challenges of electricity systems involving increasing presence of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Dispersed Generation. Such a new generation paradigm drives the evolution of distribution networks towards Smart Grids. Mastering the evolution requires new professional skills, ranging from the use of information-communication technology as enabling key for enhancing traditional networks to a full knowledge of the regulation of power systems operated in liberalized energy markets. Graduates will be highly employable in the following sectors: planning and operation of distribution systems; manufacturing of RES power plants; energy market operators.
The programme is taught in English and supported by ENEL Distribuzione S.p.A

Subjects

Electric power systems; Project management: principles & tools; Electricity Market; TLC networks for electricity systems Sensors, measurements and smart metering; Electromagnetic compatibility; Electric switching apparatus (or other offered courses); Planning & operation of distribution grids with a high penetration of RES; Renewable energy sources and network interface; Regulation of electric power systems; Network automation and protection systems; tools for network simulation; Smart grids: components, functionalities & benefits

The first month will be dedicated to introduce the students to the skills of the job, including 3d modeling, digital fabrication, Arduino technology, and principles of environmental strategies. From the second month, and through the next 11 months, the students will work on a challenging thesis project that will be presented to a public audience at the end of the Master. During this phase, a series of activities (theoretical lectures, seminars, design workshops, conferences, construction workshops) will disseminate knowledge and stimulate the students on the topics of Green Energies Design Strategies, Smart Technologies for the Built Environment, Design rating systems and certifications, Big Data, Urban Sharing. All the input coming from these activities will be embedded in the students design work to develop a compelling thesis project.

The interaction and communication between billions of devices produces and exchanges data related to real-world smart objects. This MSc develops your skills in data mining and Big Data analysis to better understand, utilise and leverage this data.

A futuristic connected world, where we increasingly interact with smart objects, on-body, in buildings, in cities and in distant, harsher environments, was once science fiction. This is now a reality: parts of buildings can now interact with each other, smart vehicles can be autonomously controlled and humans can interact with all these using smart phones and wearables.
This innovative Internet of Things (IoT) MSc programme will help you adapt to become one of the highly skilled and in-demand engineers who are able to fully exploit the potential that these technologies offer.

The Internet of Things (IoT) focuses on a vision of more connected, different, things (or digital devices) than in previous visions of the Internet. More ‘things’ are part of the physical world that connect to form smart environments. Humans are constantly increasing the frequency and range of ‘things’ (sensors, tags, cards, phones, actuator, wearables) they interact with in the world. Machine-to-machine interaction will allow more physical things to interact with other things without human intervention for scalability.
