Are you passionate about developing the next generation of production facilities for global manufacturing companies? This master’s programme will bring you up-to-speed in the latest advances in modern production, giving you the skills to improve and develop manufacturing processes and high-performing sustainable production systems. You will be responsible for helping your industry achieve new levels of performance.
Manufacturing is fundamentally important for the welfare of modern society, with a key part to play in helping achieve goals within economic, ecologic and social sustainability. Around one third of jobs in the European Union are related to the manufacturing sector, with several of the largest manufacturing companies worldwide located right here in Gothenburg — Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, and SKF, for example. We offer close cooperation with them and other leading industrial partners, active both in Sweden and internationally, providing an attractive environment for international students from all over the world. The programme features continuous interaction with such companies, through real-world project courses, master thesis projects, field-trips and guest lectures.
The subjects of automation technology and production management form the fundamental areas for this master’s programme, while other possible courses handle topics such as production systems, mechatronics and manufacturing.
The programme will teach you how to lead and develop new projects, as well as manage systems already in full operation. You will receive education in a broad base of production engineering, leaving you well placed to take up roles across a wide spectrum of career opportunities — from the automotive industry to medicine, health care, and food. You will be ideally qualified to take up roles such as a manufacturing engineer, consultant, working in management and more, at globally leading firms.
