Global competition entails several challenges for the industry. To cope with these challenges, the industry needs engineers who know how to handle product-, process- and production issues.
The MSc programme in Manufacturing Technology aims at providing graduates with competences to solve complex production-related problems and is designed to develop both theoretical understanding and practical experience.
The Aalborg University programme focuses on design, development and implementation of products, manufacturing and control systems; primarily in relation to development, planning and implementation of industrial production.
The project work is focused on putting theory into practice. You will do your project work in cooperation with a company; a great opportunity to try out your ideas and knowledge in a real-life situation.
Graduates from the Manufacturing Technolgy programme have many possible carrier paths. Examples of companies where graduates work include:
Manufacturing Technology is a two year Master's programme.
During each semester, you write a project together with a group of fellow students in collaboration with a company. During the first two semesters, each project group consists of 4-6 students. During the last two semesters, the project groups consist of 1-3 students per group.
