The Higher Polytechnic School of Mondragon Unibertsitatea is responsible for administering the Degree in Mechatronics Engineering that is taught in Arrasate-Mondragón and Bilbao (Zorrozaurre).
You can study the Degree in Mechatronics Engineering in Arrasate-Mondragón where our installations are distributed between 3 buildings that are very close to one another. At the Iturripe centre, as well as the installations necessary for your training (classrooms, library, laboratories, workshops…) you will find the sports facilities, cafe and several multi-purpose rooms. In addition, very nearby, we have the Uribarri Centre and the Garaia Centre, located in the Innovation Area with the same name, which is equipped with cutting-edge laboratories in which you will do some of your work placements.
The best equipped laboratories and workshops
The Mechatronics Engineering Degree has more than nine cutting edge laboratories with high-level scientific and technological equipment. These are the laboratories that you will have at your disposal in Arrasate and that you will use to put everything you have learned into practice.
ASSEMBLY, MACHINING AND FORMING WORKSHOP
This workshop is equipped with machinery, tooling and tools for the manufacture of parts. Machining by chip removal: lathes, milling machines, machining centers, EDM machines; forming processes: presses, shears, press brakes. Assembly tools: bearings, alignment,...
GENERAL MECHANICAL WORKSHOP
This workshop is equipped with machines for the manufacture of parts by machining by chip removal, such as lathes, milling machines, drills, grinders, etc.. In addition to practicing to work on mechanical manufacturing skills, you will produce prototype parts for the semester projects.
In the materials laboratory, you have equipment to perform tests and analysis of the properties and behavior of materials, for example, tensile and compression tests, hardness tests, resilience tests, microstructure analysis, fatigue tests, machinery for sample preparation,...
A state-of-the-art laboratory with PLC, HMI, touch screens for monitoring and control of processes and machines where you will perform guided robotics and machine vision practices.
Equipped with the necessary instrumentation for the assembly and validation of different circuits.
INDUSTRY 4.0 LABORATORY
The Industry 4.0 laboratory is the learning and research space to work with current and future technologies: internet of things, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems and robotics. In this laboratory you will be able to carry out dual training, working on projects together with researchers.
The facilities of the Bilbao AS Fabrik campus, in Zorrozaurre, and of the Somorrostro Training Center, in Muskiz, have reference technological equipment available to students of the Degree in Mechatronics Engineering. Depending on the training needs of the students during the learning process, they will have access to the laboratories of both centers.
ADVANCED MANUFACTURING AND ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING LABORATORY (AsFaBrik)
This is a space equipped with different 3D printing devices that allow components to be made with different types of materials. This space is complemented by cutting machines of different types and tools for the assembly of prototypes.
AUTOMATION AND ROBOTICS LABORATORY (AsFaBrik)
This is a space equipped with PLCs and industrial robots where you can practice programming them. It also has equipment related to artificial vision.
ASSEMBLY AND MACHINING WORKSHOPS (Somorrostro Training Centre)
These workshops are equipped with machinery, tooling and tools for the manufacture of components and the assembly of mechanical assemblies: lathes, milling machines, machining centres, drills, assembly tools...
Automaton classroom (Somorrostro Training Centre)
Space equipped with different types of PLCs and industrial process control models.
Numerical control laboratory (Somorrostro Training Centre)
This is a space equipped with different 3D printing devices that allow the production of components with different types of materials. The purpose of these components is to accelerate the construction of a demonstrator for a proof of concept.
Hydraulics and pneumatics laboratory (Somorrostro Training Centre)
Space equipped with tables specifically designed for hydraulic-electrohydraulic and pneumatic-electropneumatic-pneumatic practices, equipped with all the necessary material.
Live University life
At the University of Mondragon in general, and on the different campuses of the Higher Polytechnic School, life is lived among the latest sports, culture and entertainment facilities. The university is also very involved with the community and students organise a growing number of activities aimed at society as a whole: trade fairs, magazine, contests, Literature Week, etc.
We also organise PBL Day every year, a day when all the projects developed during the academic year are exhibited and the best one wins a prize of €1000. And you will be able to take part in the NiZuGu Mugituz conference at which we find ways to train you in sustainable development, equality and values.
All these activities also form an integral part of the educational programme and their purpose is to improve quality of life for our students. At Mondragon Unibertsitatea you also learn how to live.
- Virtual Secretary's Office: So that you can do all your paperwork online.
- Library: Books, magazines, videos, study rooms.
- Sports Services: Gym, excursions, courses and competitions.
- Canteen: Breakfast, snacks, sandwiches, lunch menu.
- KoNet: View your grades and much more on your mobile Systems Laboratory.
- Campus Virtual: e-learning platform for support during the academic year.

Special Educational Needs
Students with any kind of disability who have special educational needs arising from their disability, will have the support of a assessment panel that will evaluate the need for any possible curricular changes, timetable adjustments or alternative studies. This panel is composed of:
- The doctor of the institution
- The technical officer responsible for the prevention of occupational risks
- The director responsible for the prevention of occupational hazards and environment
- The degree coordinator
- A PAS Academic Services technical officer
PSYCHOLOGICAL CARE SERVICE
It is a service that provides psychological care, with a preventive nature and whose purpose is to ensure the bio-psycho-social well-being of the students.
It is aimed at all MGEP students and is attended by personnel certified in psychology and psychotherapy.
It offers individual psychological care (5+5 sessions) and workshops and experiences aimed at healthy development.
The service is free of charge.
