Name Master of Science - Engineering Design
Place of study Narvik
Number of terms 4
Starting term Autumn
Teaching language English
Bachelor in engineering with knowledge in materials, mechanics and modelling, but also others may be suited to the masters programme in engineering design. Special interest in understanding mathematical and physical theories and descriptions of for instance different constuction behaviours, design processeses, materials behaviour may be a benefit for maximizing the learning outcome in the education.
As a master of science in engineering design you will find jobs in any business that continuously develope their products.
What do you learn
Engineering Design, is design based on engineering science and includes knowledge about product design and computational technology. The main ingredients in Engineering Design Technical scientific computaions/calculations and applied mathematics which is applied to problems related to design, geometry and materials science. Engineering Design course provides students with an understanding of design and aesthetic design in addition to deep understanding of mathematical and physical principles and methods in the design process. We place special emphasis on the geometry and shape, product and design processes, strength calculations and analysis, materials, computer-based modeling and simulations.
After completing the master study in Engineering design the candidate has a MsS degree which qualify to start as a PhD-student within the field of Engineering design (i.e. mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, computaional methods ), if the grading is good enough (for instance for acceptance as a doctoral student).
Narvik University College offers such qualification in collaboration with universities in Norway and in Sweden.
You learn about systematic ways to make the right choice of materials and design of various products and constructions. Composite materials, modern and advanced materials and structures are important elements in the program. In addition, you learn applied mathematics and theory that is used among other things, to model, visualize, simulate and perform calculations on products and design elements. In addition to designing, modeling and visualization projects on computers, we also use modeling workshop and the layered manufacturing technique (SLA) or the 3D printer to create different physical prototypes of the products of the projects.
Engineering Design is a 2-year master's program for students who are college engineering or bachelor's degree in relevant subjects. In practice, most people with bachelor's degree in engineering (or 3-year engineering) could be recorded with knowledge in mechanics, modelling and materials. In addition, it may be appropriate for other similar programs. Those who do not have a 3-year bachelor's degree in engineering (or equivalent) can apply for admission to a 5-year Masters program. You can choose which of the bachelor's degree programs at Narvik University College you want to follow the first three years. Many people choose to follow the study Mechanical Engineering. There are thus several bachelor's degrees that qualify for admission to the 2-year program in engineering design. As an applicant, it is important that you choose the 3 +2 combination that suits you best at Narvik University College.
