Materials Science

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.

Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. Sweden borders Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund. Sweden is a developed post-industrial society with an advanced welfare state. The standard of living and life expectancy rank among the highest in the world.

Jönköping city is located in the South region of Sweden in Jönköping County. It is an agricultural town with over 90,000 residents. Jönköping has 3 universities.

Masters in Materials Science in Jönköping in Sweden. As competition between companies is getting tougher as the number of products on the market increases, many are realising the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This programme covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes. The work of engineers within product development is creative and offers a great deal of variety. This Master's programme (two years) qualifies students for positions with the manufacturers and suppliers that develop and produce components or as consultants. Emphasis is placed on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods. Vehicles, household appliances, medical equipment and certain sporting goods are all examples of products made up of complex components. Making complex things simpler The steady increase in the use of computer support makes possible new methods, which are parallel to the entire product development process. With the help of advanced computer tools in design and construction, real and virtual prototypes can be produced much faster, and the time needed for development can be shortened. In addition, a product can be studied and tested at an early stage of product development for its design, usability, durability, safety and producibility. Important aspects of work with the development of components and products include the analysis of function and performance, the choice of materials and the methods of production. This programme gives an understanding of the theory behind and the practical use of the computer based tools needed for these tasks. Industry contacts and guest speakers Some of the courses include project work. Students can, in smaller groups, analyse and make suggestions regarding real-life problems taken straight from the industry. Guest speakers from the field also take part in instruction. A thesis at the end of the programme helps students apply their theoretical knowledge and gain insight as to the research and development within the industry and the university. Extensive knowledge about materials is also acquired. The School of Engineering has well-equipped research labs for materials engineering and computer simulation. Next generation of engineers The School of Engineering, Jönköping University, is a member of the prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide - the CDIO Initiative™. The CDIO Initiative is an innovative educational framework to conceive and develop a new vision of engineering education and for producing the next generation of engineers. The programme qualifies you for positions with manufacturers and suppliers that develop and produce components, or as consultants.
