The Mechatronics research group is an applied research group (lectorate) of Saxion University of Applied Sciences located in Enschede. Companies, students, teachers and researchers work together on projects that build up knowledge. The research group has a large network of (regional) companies and knowledge institutions. The research is always demand-driven thanks to good contacts with the business community.

Key aspects taken into account while defining the core technological building blocks:

– Current trends and state-of-the-art;
– Possibility to claim unique position in the knowledge chain;
– Availability of expertise (competence);
– Applicability of technology for various application domains.

Our knowledge output usually results in demonstrators. We have made several videos of this, such as modular mechatronic building blocks, test results and student projects. The research group is chaired by professors Dirk Bekke and Abeje Mersha.
