Department: Faculty of Engineering and Technology
Level: Second Level
"Doing things right and doing the right things". Analyze, calculate and develop products using scientific methods. How should a product be designed to satisfy the requirements of performance, life, economy and environment? A technical education on an advanced level is a good base for your future success.
After finishing this Master Programme you will be able to deal with a wide range of problems within advanced Mechanical Engineering; the programme focuses on Computational Mechanics and Systems Engineering; *omit two research areas at Linneaus University.
The basis for the Computational Mechanics part is given by the courses Multivariate Calculus and Vector Calculus and Analysis of Structures. Within the Finite Element Method and Structural Dynamics courses, theory together with methods and tools for solving mechanical problems are given. Within Systems Engineering, powerful development tools with specific applications to complex products, functions and systems are given. Different case studies are presented and projects from the industry are examined in order to identify and analyze problem areas, accomplish action planning and suggest appropriate actions for handling these problems with adequate methods. In particular, projects and problems concerning heavy vehicles are studied.
The Programme qualifies you for a professional life in industry, where qualified Calculation Engineers and Designers are attractive, as well as for Ph.D. studies within the field of Mechanical Engineering.
Master of Science within Mechanical Engineering (one year).
