The PhD program in Mechatronics Engineering is the continuation of the PhD programs with similar names that have been taught continuously at the University of Malaga since 1994, and which have obtained recognition for their quality in the various calls that have arisen throughout this period. For example, the program obtained the reference of Quality Program in the early and isolated call of 1995. Subsequently, it obtained the MENTION OF QUALITY in 2006, MCD2006-00114 for the Mechatronics Engineering program approved in accordance with RD 778/1998 and in force for the academic years 2006-2007 to 2009-2010. During 2009, the Doctoral Program in MECHATRONIC ENGINEERING is taught, verified as a doctoral program with teaching period not belonging to any MASTER, according to RD. 1393/2007. In 2010 the current Master's Degree in MECHATRONIC ENGINEERING was verified, which constitutes the teaching period of the DOCTORATE PROGRAM in MECHATRONIC ENGINEERING verified according to RD 1393/2007. This program, which is currently in force, has obtained in 2011 the MENTION TOWARDS EXCELLENCE (MEE 2011-0108) valid for the academic years 2011-2012 to 2013-2014.
