The aim in mechatronics design is to enhance the performance of machines, improve their price-performance ratio and increase functionality.
Mechatronics research device

The Mechatronics research group is a proud member of the  Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence on High-Speed Electromechanical Energy Conversion Systems.

Mechatronics represents modern machine technology as a multidisciplinary field of science, including mechanical engineering with electronics and computer control in the design and manufacturing of industrial products. The aim in mechatronics design is to enhance the performance of machines, improve their price-performance ratio and increase functionality. 

Main research interests in mechatronics include vehicle dynamics in Arctic conditions, hybridisation of mobile machines, industrial internet-connected machines, rotating machinery and powertrains, integrated fluid power systems and tribology.
