Production Development and Management

120 hp | 2 år | Programstart: HT 2017 | Examen: Teknologie Masterexamen med huvudområdet Produktionssystem, inriktning Produktionsutveckling och ledning

The manufacturing industry now faces globalisation challenges and this is the starting point of this Master's programme. The aim is to provide knowledge and competence that prepare the students for leading positions within the manufacturing industry.

Making globalisation work

Today, the manufacturing industry is an international industry. Product development and production may be carried out at different geographic locations, which require communication and coordination of the activities. The competitiveness of manufacturing companies relies to a high degree on their abilities to benefit from the increased globalisation.

Preparing for leadership

This Master's programme focuses on the role that production plays within manufacturing companies. Central themes include how production systems are developed, how the design of the products and the supply chain interrelate with the production system design, and how production systems are operated and managed. The programme begins with a number of courses that provides the students with a common basis for these central themes. It ends with a final thesis work, at which the students applies the knowledge and skills gained during the program.

Connect theory with practice

An underlying idea of the programme is that the students are given the opportunity to connect theory with practice. Therefore, important parts of the programme are carried out as project assignments. This provides the students with possibilities to relate their theoretical understanding to the real conditions of the manufacturing industry. The programme is led by a management team that includes persons representing leading positions in industry, students and teachers. The management team ensures the relevance and quality of the programme.

International perspective

All courses are conducted in English and you study together with other international students. There are possibilities for you to study one semester abroad at one of our partner universities.

Industrial placement course

In this course you have five weeks of internship in a company or another organization. The purpose is to you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education.

Career prospects

A student that has graduated from the programme is ready to take up various positions in industry, including areas such as production development, production management, production planning, or logistics. The student will also be prepared for doctoral studies.
