Materials and Manufacturing

Teknologie magisterexamen med huvudområdet Produktutveckling, inriktning Material och tillverkning, 60 hp

Studieort: Program via nätet

Programstart: Hösten 2020

Products are tending to become more complex with greater demands on performance, energy consumption, environmental impact and costs. Casting is the most used method to manufacture components, which provides enormous freedom when it comes to developing innovative, knowledge-intensive and sustainable solutions for increased industrial competitiveness.

The Master’s programme in Materials and Manufacturing is developed in a collaboration between the School of Engineering, Swedish Foundry Association, Swerea SWECAST and the foundry industry. The industry is involved in lecturers, with expertise, study visits, and through a collaboration on relevant projects.

The courses are in English and are mostly web-based, for example through video lectures, discussion forums and e-meetings. Meetings in Jönköping for laboratory work is never mandatory but can occur in some of the courses. You will study half-time, which means that you can choose to combine your studies with work. 

The Master’s programme is interdisciplinary and includes aspects such as:

  • solidification of cast metals, cast metals processes, heat treatment, defect and failure analysis
  • the relationship between mould filling, solidification of metals, defect formation and performance of castings
  • predictive tools to simulate the complex relationship between the cast metal and the processes that make it possible for the engineer to further optimize cast components without compromising performance.

Connect theory with practice

Through the courses it is possible to collaborate with partner companies, which facilitates the connection between theory and current professional practice. The courses offer the students opportunities to work with problems/challenges from professional practice related to current topics on the courses. The mixture of professionals and students from the bachelor level enables both networking and a connection between theory and practice throughout the programme.

International perspective

All courses are in English, as the programme recruits both Swedish and international students. Lecturers and experts from our international partners are also an important element.

Career prospects

The programme qualifies you for services in product development, the purchasing and quality departments at the foundries and end users of cast components, and it allows for a research career at institutions and/or universities.
