Mechatronics Engineering

Program Description

Mechatronics engineering is a branch of engineering that emerges from the integration of knowledge in the fields of mechanical, electronic, control, and computer engineering. In this context, the courses offered in the program are based on the integration of mechanical, electronic, software, control, and automation knowledge. Thus, within the program, interdisciplinary work based on mechatronic system design is carried out through experimental and numerical analysis.

Istanbul Gedik University offers two different options for postgraduate studies in Mechatronics Engineering: thesis-based and non-thesis-based programs. In these programs, academia and industry collaborate closely to generate solutions for industry-related challenges. This collaboration is facilitated through industry-focused projects in courses and work conducted at the Robotics Technologies Application and Research Center. In addition to theoretical courses, students have the opportunity to develop their practical skills by choosing courses that emphasize design and modeling.

Graduates of the Mechatronics Engineering Thesis-Based Master’s Program can find employment opportunities in various fields, including defense and automotive industries, aircraft manufacturing, robot integration, biomedical system companies, aviation industry, renewable energy production, hydroelectric power plants, iron and steel industry, ceramics and glass industry, food and pharmaceutical industry, textile industry, machinery and manufacturing sector, energy distribution facilities, chemical and petrochemical plants, elevator and escalator manufacturing companies, shipbuilding industry, and shipyards, among many others. Furthermore, they can pursue an academic career through research and PhD studies.

Program Structure

The thesis-based Master’s program in Mechatronics Engineering consists of a total of 7 courses worth 21 credits, a seminar course, and a thesis project. The seminar course and the thesis project are non-credit and are graded as either pass or fail. The minimum duration of the thesis-based Master’s program is four semesters, and the maximum is six semesters. Periods in which a student is not enrolled are included in the maximum duration calculations. The scientific preparation program is not taken into account in these calculations.
