- You can shape the optimal products of the future
Product forming is one of the most important competition factors for producers of all kinds of products. With a Masters Degree in engineering design, you will be a very attractive commodity in an exciting employment market.
In order to have products that function optimally, advanced calculation and design are required. This is what the design engineer strives to do. Through this course, you will gain an understanding about how shaping and aesthetic design can work together with strict demands for tolerance and functionality in a product.
The most important factors in engineering design are thus calculation skills and applied science, which can be used to solve problems related to design, geometry and material techniques.
The course is divided into fours main sections:
• Production design and design process
• Strength calculation
• Material technology
• Technical-scientific calculations
During the course of study, you will be able to participate in projects where you can design, measure up, model, simulate, redesign and make prototypes.
The employment opportunities for engineering designers are vast. You can work for anyone who is dependent upon continual development of their products, such as, for example, manufacturers, constructors or consultancy firms within car production, space technology, the oil branch, boat and mobile lightweight constructions, house and building detailing, technical equipment or consumer goods.
In addition, you can work in teaching, research and development, or you can be a candidate for management positions within the public and private sectors.
Based upon former experience, design engineers are extremely sought after and easily find themselves interesting jobs.
Following this, you can further your studies with a research qualification (PhD). Narvik University College offers such qualification in collaboration with universities in Norway and in Sweden.
Medium of instruction is English.
