Program Profile

Qualification Awarded

MSc in Manufacturing and Welding Engineering Design

Level Of Qualification

Master (2nd Cycle Degree)

Offered by

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mode of Study

Full Time or Part Time

The aim of this MSc programme is to provide this advanced knowledge and scientific background such that our engineering graduates, based on the knowledge gained from this programme, can enter the mechanical engineering industry successfully and use this knowledge to slowly become experts in certain active areas or disciplines.

Furthermore, this MSc programme will broaden, strengthen and integrate knowledge and understanding regarding advanced engineering industry processes. This will include all the necessary academic tools, computational modelling techniques, design, and engineering practice to solve mechanical engineering problems of varying complexity, taking into consideration the economic, social and environmental context.

At the end of this programme, a deep and broad knowledge of the advanced mechanical engineering technology will have been acquired, enabling the prediction, improvement and innovativeness of the processes of modern mechanical engineering design and production activities.

Specializations in the MSc in Manufacturing and Welding Engineering Design

  1. Specialization in Manufacturing Engineering Design include courses which are designed to provide advanced competencies in the areas of computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided design and analysis, and integrated processing of various materials. It is designed for decision-makers in manufacturing engineering, engineering graphics and design, process engineering, quality assurance, and tooling design.
  2. Specialization in Welding Engineering Design will provide graduates with a fundamental understanding of welding technologies and an awareness of recent technical developments within the relevant industries. It will also improve communication, presentation, analytical and problem solving skills. Our graduates will obtain high level education gain in advanced welding and joining technologies, thus be able to attain positions of significant engineering responsibility

The language of instruction is English and the program is academic.
