The student’s ability to determine and evaluate the solution space for suitable mechatronic solutions with respect to choice of technologies, as well as the weighting between mechanic, electronic and software have an immense impact on the functionality, flexibility and performance of the final product. In this paper two different, challenging mechatronic projects are presented demonstrating the engineering skills of some of the Masters of Science students at The Technical University of Denmark. The projects are: • A four wheel driven and steered autonomous agricultural robot has been designed and build in a one year Masters Thesis Project by two M.Sc. students (2400 hours in total). • The development of a portable platform for flight simulation has been initiated in a Mid-term project by two students (720 hours in total). In both of these projects the students started from scratch with an initial problem statement that should be solved by developing suitable mechatronic devices.
