Meet the tools necessary for the generation of a product from the first contact with the company through the different stages of development. [+]

Masters in Product Development in Europe 2017. How should an object? Think how it must have, for example, a chair, without having assessed before anything that affects our future chair itself, or in essence, the idea of ​​"gimmick" to support the buttocks; not only would like to start the cart before the horse, we would risk that it would be useless. Would he then meet our "gimmick" your goal? Clearly, an object must be beautiful to generate attraction to the potential consumer; but what value would generate a more beautiful chair, if uncomfortable, does not fit well with the table, mars the pavement when I move, does not fit the budget of the company, ... Worthless. Whenever not clearly specify the briefing we had to do an uncomfortable chair; for example, for a visitor not feel at ease and leave quickly. In this master's degree in product design propose understand how not the objective, but as a consequence. When all factors to consider (business, social context, target audience, usability, functionality, ...) are determined and analyzed by the student, the form will cease to be somewhat arbitrary.

Master in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems

University College of Southeast Norway
Campus Full time 4 semesters January 2017 Norway Drammen Porsgrunn Rauland Bodø + 3 more

Systems Engineering is a widely recognized method for developing systems in industries such as automotive and oil, computers, network, communication, research and development. [+]

Master in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems Systems Engineering is a widely recognized method for developing systems in industries such as automotive and oil, computers, network, communication, research and development. What is Systems Engineering Complex industry-projects require the participation from several professions. It is of paramount importance that all participants in such projects are using the same methodology, that they use a common language that everyone understands. Systems Engineering is an area of expertise where knowledge about how to develop complex products in the best way is gathered and developed. Methodology and systems thinking that puts us in position to master the complexity that is required to create good, reliable and safe products that the market is requesting will in the future be of vital importance for modern industrial production. Therefore, we have a desire to increase our capability to create new, advanced products that are within the requirements for functionality, reliability, safety and in the future also a long string of ever more important environmental requirements. What is Embedded Systems Most advanced industrial products today contain an increasing amount of computational power. This development of built-in computational power is what is called Embedded Systems. A common misunderstanding is that data power (computers) only exists in PC's. This is far from true. Computers come in a rich variety of types and sizes, and are often built into modern products to improve and expand the usefulness of the products for the humans that are using them. The complexity also is expanding as we are putting higher demands on the systems. This reality is what we wish to prepare our students for in our master program. A prime example of a product with steady increase in functionality is the automobile. Today we can find 25-30 computers in an ordinary car. The more advanced and expensive cars can have far more. All these computers need to be programmed and linked with the mechanical and electrical systems of the car. The list of functions keeps increasing as new cars are put on the market. Embedded systems is dealing with supplying the computational power that is needed, and ensuring that the equipment works as intended. About the program This program is a 2-year full time program. While USN have other master programs that include part time employment in local industry, this is not a part of the program in Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems. We do however have close cooperation with local industry in the Kongsberg area. In their last semester, our students have the opportunity to do their master thesis in cooperation with our industrial partners. Systems Engineering with Embedded Systems has in-depth courses in Embedded Systems and will also have a minor in Systems Engineering.
