Till ansökan (öppnar 15 mars)

As competition between companies is getting tougher as the number of products on the market increases, many are realising the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This programme covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes.

Making 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, safety and producibility. Important aspects of work with the development of components and products include the analysis of function and performance, the choice of materials and the methods of production. This programme gives an understanding of the theory behind and the practical use of the computer based tools needed for these tasks.

Industry contacts and guest speakers

Some of the courses include project work. Students can, in smaller groups, analyse and make suggestions regarding real-life problems taken straight from the industry. Guest speakers from the field also take part in instruction. A thesis at the end of the programme helps students apply their theoretical knowledge and gain insight as to the research and development within the industry and the university. Extensive knowledge about materials is also acquired. The School of Engineering has well-equipped research labs for materials engineering and computer simulation.

International perspective

All courses are conducted in English and you study together with other international students. There are possibilities for you to study one semester abroad at one of our partner universities.

Industrial placement course

In this course you have five weeks of internship in a company or another organization. The purpose is to you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education.

Career prospects

The work of engineers within product development is creative and offers a great deal of variety. This Master's programme 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, producibility and production methods. Vehicles, household appliances, medical equipment and certain sporting goods are all examples of products made up of complex components.

Next generation of engineers

The School of Engineering, Jönköping University, is a member of the prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide - the CDIO Initiative™. The CDIO Initiative is an innovative educational framework to conceive and develop a new vision of engineering education and for producing the next generation of engineers.
