Materials Science

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Macromolecular Materials at KTH

Students will learn about design, synthesis, characterization, production, and development of polymer and fiber-based materials throughout the duration of the degree program. The material group includes plastics, rubber, composites, paper, wood and other biological materials; students will be able to handle questions pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), and the choice of production processes, material combinations, and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired characteristics in the finished product. Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and development of sustainable materials.... [-]

Master in Product Development and Materials Engineering

Jönköping University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Sweden Jönköping

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. [+]

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. 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.... [-]


Advanced Materials Science & Engineering (AMASE) Master

AMASE Master
Campus Full time 2 years October 2018 Sweden Luleå

The AMASE Masters course has been successfully implemented over the last five years with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme. [+]

The AMASE Masters course has been successfully implemented over the last five years with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme. Scholarships are available for students from all over the world and are between 500 EUR and 1000 EUR per month. The course has demonstrated high quality throughout. In order to ensure the programme's continuity - the "non-selected status" may prove temporary and only last until the next call - the consortium delivering this Joint Masters course has been awarded by the European Commission/EACEA an Erasmus Mundus Brand Name (EMBN) by which it commits itself to maintain the requirements and level of excellence expected from an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course....
