Programme content and structure

120 points are required for the MSc in Materials Technology with specialisation in Composites, of which 105 must have been gained at an advanced level. The education within Materials Technology has a strong emphasis and progression in the field of composites. During the first year of the course the emphasis is on theoretical knowledge that is required for the projects that are undertaken in year two. During the first term, a course at foundation level is given in the necesary principles within organic chemistry. In the second term, students choose from several courses in the field of materials. Year two comprises one term´s project work together with a finishing masters thesis work in the field of Materials Technology with an emphasis on Composites.

The mandatory courses must be completed prior the start of the master´s thesis. Specific information about application and selection for master´s thesis is controlled by the course coordinator department.

Swedish for beginners is offered in the education for overseas students. The course is not used in the assessment, and is read in addition to the obligatory courses.


The programme consists of 120 Credits


Entry requirements
