International Mechatronics Education Project IMEP

The three partner universities from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany have been cooperating in this project since 2013. Mixed student groups with participants from the three universities work together in the IMEP-project “Robotics and Vision” to develop different machine vision solutions and to have lectures and exercises in robotics. Mechatronics engineering students learn how to act in an international team and how to use the internet for communication.
