Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary Mechanical engineers focus on the design, analyses and maintenance of machinery, structures and products. The Master’s programme in Mechanical Engineering zooms in on one of these disciplines.
Course description Almost every aspect of our modern world is in some way a product of mechanical engineering, from power stations and oil refineries to steel plants, flood barriers and hearing aids. Mechanical engineers are behind all of our modern means of transport and they are also responsible for innovations in fields such as biomedicine. Our research focuses on developing expertise that spans the entire life cycle of systems and objects, from initiation to design, production, operation, maintenance and demolition, inspired by the ideals of benefit to society and respect for the environment. From large scale installations to precision medical devices, mechanical engineers put high-tech solutions in a human context. The Master’s programme in Mechanical Engineering will train you to be an expert who understands the entire process, from generating initial ideas to design and analysis, onward to the development of products, processes, systems and maintenance and end of life recycling. The programme offers unique opportunities to combine various disciplines and will encourage you push the envelope of what is possible.
Study subjects The programme has a 2-angled structure: students choose a profile and a specialization. The 3 profiles are in Research; Design and Management. The specializations are in Applied Mech; Automation; Biomech; Design Eng; Fluid Dyn; Laser Techn; Production; Composites; Surface Techn and Thermal RNG. Also there are fixed programmes in ind. Design and Manufacturing; Mechatronics and Sustainable Energy.
Course objectives The programme aims at educating engineers for constructive engineering and design functions and for engineering research (incl. PhD). The graduates are able to handle the entire process from generating the initial idea to design and analysis, and onward to the development of products, processes and systems.
