Level: Master
Application period: 2020-10-16 - 2021-05-02
Start date: Autumn 2021
City: Jönköping
Degree: Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Product Development, specialisation in Materials and Manufacturing., 120 credits

This programme within product development is focusing on being able to predict and optimize engineering components. The program introduces you to product realization and both product and production development. You learn about materials science, manufacturing technology, surface technology och numerical analysis. The second-year offers two tracks, one within component optimization and the other is given entirely online within foundry technology. Within component technology, you get more experienced with computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis. You will also study polymers and simulation of process influence on microstructure. In the foundry technology track, you get acquainted by the various casting alloys and casting processes. You learn about melting, molding materials, and environmental impact assessment as well as solidification, analysis of defects, and modeling of the casting process.

Many courses contain real industrial cases from companies in collaboration with the department of materials and manufacturing. An optional course, industrial placement course, contains 4 weks of practical work in industry, where the part of practical work of the course also could be managed during the summer.

You will be a helpful resource in the work of product development and would fit in a R&D team You could also continue with PhD studies within materials science, manufacturing technology or optimization. Your developed skills allows you to optimize engineering components with respect to performance, environmental impact and cost.
