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.

Do you want to add knowledge about management and control of international and global supply chain and logistics to your bachelor degree? In that case, International Logistics and Supply Chain Management is the programme for you. This programme is unique in that it offers a cross-disciplinary education, combining the core topics of logistics and supply chain management with informatics, and economic geography. You gain deep theoretical knowledge and understanding of the supply chain network and its development, as well as of the tools needed to analyse, develop and change such supply chains. The pro­gramme prepares students for internatio­nal careers. There is a strong connection between theory and practice and you will enjoy continuous and constructive exposure to practice, exchange with practitioners, and insights from the faculty’s internatio­nally recognised research throughout the various modules. Practitioners are invited to make presentations as well as to engage in discussions. Students are introduced to live cases and visits to companies. All courses are given in English. The programme is open to students from around the world, and courses have a diverse international participation of students. This international atmosphere contributes to a broad perspective of the issues discussed in class. Study abroad Students have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our many partner universities. The alternative to international exchange is to study elective courses at Jönköping International Business School. Both alternatives allows you to create your own individualised profile. Internships Part of the elective semester can be devoted to an internship. After graduation The strong focus and cross-disciplinary nature of the programme prepare you for a career in the areas of supply chain management and logistics and equip you with the skills for a career such as procu­rement officer, logistics manager, supply chain manager, product manager, marke­ting manager/director. The programme also prepares students for doctoral research education.
