Institute of Mechatronics

The Institute of Mechatronics exploits the interdisciplinarity of (bio) mechatronics to conduct collaborative research on novel actuators and sensors for various applications in healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace and microsystems. Research at the Institute is focused on technologies for wellness and sports, medical disorder prevention, diagnostics and treatment, rehabilitation and assistance, mechanical energy harvesting and sensing, high-resolution positioning and high-performance machining.

Our mission

To create and to transfer knowledge and innovative technologies in the field of mechatronics; to develop talents and leaders in open and inspiring environment, to conduct high-level interdisciplinary research contributing to research-based studies on international level.

Our vision

International research and study centre of excellence in mechatronics field, whose activities are based on knowledge technologies development and transfer.

To achieve our vision we are enhancing R&D activities with the aim to identify the key competences of the Institute, strengthening and developing relations with Lithuanian and foreign partners.

We aim to attract, develop and maintain talents and leaders working in the field of mechatronics by engaging with bachelor’s, master’s and PhD study programmes, supervised by the Institute.

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science combining mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering.

Although originally mechatronics meant a combination of mechanics and electronics (as the name suggests), with development of technical systems, which have become more and more complex the definition has been broadened to include more technical areas.
