M.Sc. Simulation Driven Product Development

The Master of Science programme in Simulation Driven Product Development prepares you for several advanced work tasks within the field of mechanical engineering and industry. During this Master's programme, you will gain in-depth knowledge in product development.

You will also gain a deep understanding of modern numerical methods and practical skills in experimental methods that are used to collect data that serves as support in the product development process. These skills are highly demanded by industry as well as universities and colleges for development and research.

During the first semester, a foundation is given in the field of computational mechanics and structural dynamics as well as to academic studies at advanced level. As a student, you gain a deeper understanding of physical systems, its characteristics, and the uncertainty in experimental results.

The second semester is devoted to CAE driven product development and the product lifecycle with a clear sustainability focus. In addition, you will gain understanding of material mechanics, modeling, and methodology to solve industrial problems.

The third semester provides a basis for experimental methods and analyses of measurement data.

The above knowledge is applied in a larger independent work that runs during the fourth semester.

Admission requirements

  • General entry requirements for second cycle studies and specific entry requirements: Bachelor of Science in Technology, Engineering or Mathematics
  • 7.5 credits Solid Mechanics or Structural Mechanics or equivalent
  • 22,5 credits Algebra and Calculus or equivalent
  • English 6 or equivalent.
