MSc in Technology of Wood, Plastics and Textiles Tallinn University of Technology
Teaching is organised into modules combining lectures, seminars and laboratory work in the recently renovated laboratory of Polymer Physics and Technology, which is equipped with state-of-the-art devices. The programme also emphasises the basic practical knowledge of CAD-engineering programmes and CAM-manufacturing technologies as they are extremely important in every industrial sector all over the world. The curriculum gives students the unique opportunity to implement their individual research projects in collaboration with various companies.
Why this programme?
- All courses are taught by using blended learning solutions (face-to-face + e-learning) which makes the learning process more flexible.
- Students have the opportunity to visit different wood-, plastic, and furniture products manufacturing companies, so they are getting familiar with the production.
- Three hands-on scientific research or industrial projects develop students’ skills and provide a smooth transition from university studies to a professional career
The programme gives students vocational and professional preparation for working in the international engineering industry as a designer/constructor, specialist, industrial engineer or middle manager. This curriculum gives valuable knowledge and the practical experience necessary to work with customised furniture projects (hotels, restaurants, public sector buildings, cruise ships) or material selection and technology development for plastic products manufacturing. Skills in CAD/CAM engineering work in connection with knowledge about the technological properties of wood-, laminates, plywood, chipboard, medium-density fibreboard, plastics, metals, leather, textiles and composite materials that might come in handy for different professions.
