Course Content

The programme includes six compulsory courses and a mandatory Master’s thesis project. In addition, the programme architecture enables students to select courses across three main occupational tracks:
  • Production systems engineering - prepares for taking an active role in developing complex production systems. The work tasks include planning for new or updated industrial facilities, e.g. with purchasing of automation technology and design of efficient production flows. Furthermore, the profile track emphasizes the need for safe and profitable involvement of human resources. Skills in building virtual models of products, machines, cells, and production lines are central as a sustainable way of working for future engineers.
  • Manufacturing Process Engineering - contains the work tasks to select suitable processes, tools and machines for value adding manufacturing operations in the physical materials. Computer-based tools are frequently used as virtual aids for preparing manufacturing processes such as forming, cutting, casting, and joining as well as planning the manufacturing of polymer and composite materials.
  • Production Management Engineering – focuses on the management of resources and activities, typically on a factory and/or enterprise level. Important aspects are: to align the production systems design to the strategy of the company, to initiate and manage design and change initiatives in production, to plan and control the effective use of materials and production units to meet customer demands, and to ensure that modern production technologies and philosophies are efficiently implemented.
Research connections

The programme is part of Chalmers’ Production Area of Advance and the courses are given by four different departments: Materials and manufacturing technology, Product and production development, Signals and systems and Technology management and economics.

These all have prominent research activities, and the students can thereby take advantage of up-to-date research advancements. For students interested in an occupation in the academic field, the programme offers preparatory courses for starting a research career.
