Mechatronic Circus & Demo Day 2023

The sure sign of spring, the Mechatronic Circus, is here again. On Thursday 13.4.2023. you can learn about smart devices built by students and take part in the Demo Day where researchers will present the latest research data on topics such as digital twins, machine vision and rotating machines.
Mechatronic Circus
Mechatronic Circus & Demo Day gathers together industrial experts, researchers and students.

The program is split to two tracks:

Demo Day 8.30–15.00

  • 8.30–9.00 Coffee
