Master in Production Development and Management
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 (two years) 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 is carried out in the project form. 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.
