Programme content and structure

Education for the degree of Master of Science is given in conjunction with the University of Saarland (Germany), Nancy (France) and Barcelona (Spain). During the programme students spend at least one term during their second year at one of these universities.

Within the field of Materials Technology, during the first year the structure and properties of materials are covered, together with experimental methods within materials science. It is possible to choose different areas of specialisation in the form of five different electives: Advanced Metallic Materials, Polymers and Composites, High Performance Surfaces, Materials Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies, Bio/Nanomaterials. During the second year a project is completed within materials technology and material development connected to development work in cooperation with industry or within a field of current research. The last year of the programme comprises the Masters thesis. This is carried out at the university in which the student has been accepted or at the university where the student has spent the third term.

For a Masters thesis in the field of Materials Technology (120 credits) at least 90 credits comprise courses at an advanced level. Students can not combine courses Laser Material Processing (T0018T) with Material Selection & Eco Design (T0007T).  The degree requires that the student spends at least one term at one cooperating university in Saarland (Germany), Nancy (France) or Barcelona (Spain), and have completed courses at an advanced level (specially specified).

For admission to the gegree project course, entry requirements specified in the course syllabus must be completed. Information regarding the application- and admission process is given and ensured by the responsible department.  Degree project can also be performed in Saarbrücken, Nancy or Barcelona.

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