Program Description

Master of Science in Engineering - Product Development and Innovation

University of Southern Denmark

It must be possible to improve this! These are your immediate thoughts, whenever you see something that does not work properly. A master of science in engineering degree in Product Development and Innovation provides you with not only the tools for idea creation but also the tools to applying those ideas in the real world. You will be qualified to start your own company or to develop business concepts in existing companies.

As a master student you can specialise in one of two areas: Product Value Creation or Global Supply Chain Development.

Programme structure

This is a two-year master programme. To study a master degree in Product Development and Innovation you must have a relevant bachelor degree (three years of previous study at university level).

At the master programme you choose an academic profile; the area in which you want to specialise.

Many different career options

With a master degree in PDI you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could plan and carry out innovation processes; or you could be employed as manager of a development department, global market research analyst, or product developer at a Danish or international company.

It is also possible to continue on a three-year research programme which will lead to a PhD degree. Another option is to study an industrial research programme which is carried out in close cooperation with a company where you are employed.

Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Product Development and Innovation).

Study environment

Each year more than 1500 international students from all over the world choose to study at the University of Southern Denmark, so you will become part of a lively international student environment.

We believe that engineers of today must have a global perspective and experience and we encourage international as well as Danish students to spend one or two semesters abroad on an internship or as exchange students.

Faculty of Engineering has adopted a student-centred approach to learning, and teaching is based on problem based project work. Students participate significantly in class and carry out project work in small teams.
