The programme provides students with the knowledge, skills and vision required to solve engineering challenges in the manufacturing process, industrial automation, and product development, preparing them to take on leadership roles in globally competitive manufacturing industries. Our courses, seminars, workshops and projects are specifically designed for the student and combine solid theoretical knowledge with hands-on skills. After the programme, the students will be able to analyse, evaluate and optimise complex manufacturing processes and production systems involved in the product realisation.
The programme combines production and materials engineering with a focus on sustainable production, digitalised production, production automation, global production and the global marketplace. The programme also offers the opportunity to specialise in a chosen field of production engineering and has a strong international orientation. It takes advantage of the opportunities available in a multinational group of students, increasing their competencies in intercultural and global management.
Special features of the programme:
A multidisciplinary approach that provides students with comprehensive knowledge as well as practical skills and abilities. Graduates are prepared to solve cross-functional and interdisciplinary industrial problems with an all-inclusive approach.
Contextual knowledge of production and materials engineering in a changing world, with a global-to-local perspective.
System perspective that provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and manage complex and interdependent processes in production and material processing.
Hands-on training and project development. The programme has the support of a wide range of industries, from global industrial giants to SMEs, from regional to international companies. Thanks to these strong links with the industry, several courses are organised in active cooperation with industries.
Comprehensive education in basic sciences and engineering that prepares for a research career in, for example, manufacturing processes, industrial automation, production management, etc.
