As competition between companies is getting tougher and the number of products on the market increases, many are realizing the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This program covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes. How can we make 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 and safety. In this course you have five weeks of internship in a company or another organization. The purpose is to give you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education. The work of engineers within product development is creative and offers a great deal of variety. This Master’s program qualifies students for positions with the manufacturers and suppliers that develop and produce components or as consultants. Emphasis is placed on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use and production methods. Vehicles, household appliances, medical equipment and certain sporting goods are all examples of products made up of complex components.
