This master’s programme provides you with skills to carry out engineering work and manage improvements in a production system. It prepares you with knowledge regarding flexible and adaptive production systems that can proactively respond to industrial changes. The programme builds knowledge in manufacturing strategies including reconfigurable production systems, production engineering and automation.


The program has a holistic view of production including development of the production system and its interaction with the entire product realization process. The programme focuses on design and development of production systems including an outlook into manufacturing reconfigurability strategies, automation and production engineering. Thereafter, management of production systems is in focus where simulation tools will be introduced for analysis of a production system. Furthermore, taking a holistic view of the product realization process allows the students to understand the importance of integration of organizational functions, persons’ knowledge and competences in order to secure industrialization and production ramp-up to the required volumes, quality and cost of a products.

During semester 3 all students have the possibility to study abroad.

Graduates will be provided with methods and tools used for improving production solutions. Aspects of management are included in many of the courses, providing skills in leading and integrating production engineering during a new product realisation process. Graduates will be highly skilled engineers with sustainable, innovative mindsets for future development of a complex and digitalized industry.

The theoretical studies are integrated with guest lectures from industry, study visits as well as industrial tasks or projects applying theory in a practical task. An industrial placement course is elective for an engineering placement in an industrial environment.

After finalizing the Master in Production Engineering and Management you are prepared for jobs as Production Engineer focus Industrialization project in a large company or at a manufacturing supplier, Production Engineer with Management possibilities such as production manager, Production Engineer designing production cells as a consultant or within a manufacturing company or Production Engineer focus on research for industrial needs.
