The Saimaa University of Applied Sciences is an institute of higher education in South-Eastern Finland. They have about 3,000 students and 260 teachers/personnel.

Challenge:

How to teach the future engineers to understand and design mechatronic systems requiring interdisciplinary skills? How to increase the student motivation?

Solution:

The Saimaa University of Applied Sciences decided to use Mevea Research Pack for academic use and integrate the real-time simulation and simulator into their advanced engineering courses.

Benefits:

The simulator has increased the students’ understanding of the mechatronic system and interdisciplinary skills in areas like machine design, automation and hydraulics. State of the art tools in education have also proven to be valuable in recruiting new students.

The simulator has increased the students' understanding of the mechatronic system and interdisciplinary skills.
