You will go through a multi-disciplinary experiential learning at the TP Advanced Manufacturing Centre (TP AMC) and learn to master the application of robotics, automation, 3D printing and data  analytics in technological areas such as cyber-physical systems, virtual manufacturing as well as machine vision and pattern recognition.

With increasing consumer demand for personalised products and smart digital services in growth areas such as advanced manufacturing, aerospace, robotics, artificial intelligence, precision engineering and pharmaceutical manufacturing, the specialised skills you will acquire in these areas will provide you an advantage in virtually any engineering sector!
In your final year, you can select one of these elective clusters:
• Advanced Manufacturing
• Advanced Engineering Skills
• 3D Printing
• Intralogistics & Cybersecurity
• Semiconductor Technology
• Work-Study Degree Programme

Automate with AI at the TP Advanced Manufacturing Centre
You will reap the benefits of authentic and multi-disciplinary experiential training in advanced automation technologies and solutions from industry leaders such as Omron, Siemens, Festo etc. These state-of-the-art manufacturing platforms are widely deployed globally at advanced manufacturing facilities for high-mix low-volume (HMLV) production. You will be well equipped to be part of the future-ready workforce in advanced manufacturing and ride the wave of Industry 4.0 transformation!
Develop robots at the Robotics & Automation Centre
You will have the opportunity to work on robotics projects under the supervision of a team of research engineers from this centre that focuses on core technological areas in embedded intelligent systems, edutainment robotics, research robotics, factory automation, process simulation, control and automation, as well as machine vision systems.

3D print at the Digital Fabrication & Additive Manufacturing Centre
You will benefit from working in the DFAMC to gain hands-on skills in additive manufacturing – part of the advanced manufacturing technologies involving polymer and metal 3D printing, which are applicable to many specialised and emerging industry applications. You can also work on collaboration projects with the industry to facilitate the adoption of 3D printing technology.

    What is Mechatronics?

    Mechatronics definition Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It is the science, that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines: mechanics, electronics, informatics, automation, robotics. It is one of the most dynamically developing fields of technology and science. The word 'mechatronics' appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969. mechatronics = mecha nics + elec tronics + computing

    DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

    Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.

    Mechatronic Systems Applications [e-book pdf]

    Mechatronics is the synergistic blend of mechanics, electronics, and computer science. This book is concerned with applications of mechatronic systems in various fields, like robotics, medical and assistive technology, human-machine interaction, unmanned vehicles, manufacturing, and education.

    Ascento - The Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

    All-terrain capabilities are required to extend beyond flat surfaces the application range of wheeled robots. First think is four or six-legged robots which have been well known for years. Nowadays, thanks to more and more perfect gait algorithms, the two-legged (bipedal) robots appears more and more often. ETH Zürich students combine the advantages of wheeled robot and two-legged robot.

    Where to Download 3D CAD Models? Online Libraries, Collection, Community

    Each novice designer may have a problem with obtaining 3D CAD models for their projects. Preparing models on your own is time consuming and often unnecessary. To save your time when choosing the components, check if the distributor or manufacturer does not offer on their websites available ready-made 3D CAD models to download. By downloading models directly from the manufacturer we can have a greater chance that the model reproduces 100% of the actual product. 

    Smart Home Makes Your Life Easier

    Smart homes are also called intelligent, automated or autonomous houses. Nowadays, you can also automate the flats. Dynamic development of automation technology gives you opportunities that were only seen in sci-fi movies in the past. Soon, probably only your imagination will be the limit. What gives us the smart home system?

    How Automated Parking System Works

    An automated car parking system is a mechatronic system designed to transport and park cars automatically. The first semi-automated parking system was used in Paris, France in 1905 at the Garage Rue de Ponthieu (the car was transported to selected level using an internal elevator and the vehicle was parked by attendants). An automated storage and retrieval system for cars is a solution to cities' parking problems, such as the space wasting in a multi-story parking.

    How 6-Axis Industrial Robots Work

    6-axis industrial robots are commonly used in the manufacturing industry due to their flexibility, powerful programming software, payload capacities ranging from 5kg up to 1000kg and accuracy to 0.1mm or better. Here is a basic breakdown of how a standard 6-axis robot works. The way it rotates, how it is programmed, and the different types of tooling and grippers.

    Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

    Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.
