In the second year, for your third semester, you can choose between Luleå University of Technology in Sweden and Coimbra University in Portugal. In this semester you will take a very experimental "hands on" approach to develop your skills to work as an engineer in the related subjects within Tribology. You will also undertake a comprehensive project course during the third semester. Projects are developed as a part of ongoing fundamental based research projects or as part of industry related and more applied topics in collaboration with our industrial partners. All of these partners are involved in Tribology or related subjects as part of their core business, which means that the interest in your contribution will be high. Linking projects to your master thesis (the final (fourth) semester in year 2), will give you the opportunity to work with something that interests you for a longer period of time. All teaching during 2 years is in English. After the two first semesters, there will be an opportunity for summer jobs at many companies in the TRIBOS industrial network.
After completing your studies you will have the knowledge and ability to develop solutions in tribological interfaces, lubrication, lubricants, wear and friction mechanisms (from nano-to macro-scale). You will also have skills in language and cultural knowledge from several European universities and companies.
The education will give you a very good platform to look for work all over the world where you can offer expertise in many exciting topics that are directly connected to Tribology. The programme has strong support from the industry. During the two years of your education you will have a very unique possibility to learn about these companies and build a strong network for the future.
