MSc in Construction and Exploitation of Means of Transport: Product Engineering

General

Program Description

M.Sc. in Construction and Exploitation of Means of Transport, specialization: Product Engineering (Faculty of Transport Engineering), duration: 3 semesters, 90 ECTS points

The course is intended for mechanical engineers who want to broaden their education on issues connected with managing an industrial product in its whole life cycle, starting from design and finishing in disposal (cradle to grave approach).

Environmental, economic and social impacts of any products’ existence must all be considered in a path to create goods suitable for the future, sustainable economy. Everything that is available at the global market, both goods and services, is also subject to global competition. Therefore, a strong focus in the course is put on the marketing approach to a product, understanding that not only technical requirements stated by potential customers are the source of a products’ market status but also interdisciplinary multi-aspect thinking is necessary for the work of a successful product manager.

Faculty of Transport Engineering offers a unique study programme aimed at educating engineers for the needs of a sustainable economy. The Faculty has a long-lasting experience in teaching and high scientific potential in means of qualified staff and exceptional research equipment. Adding to this the ongoing cooperation with the best European educational and R&D institutions, it all provides conditions for high-quality technical education.
