Learn about production

Our responsibility towards future generations is to provide world-class education in sustainable production to create a solid ground where creativity and new innovations spires. We support this by presenting a broad range of master’s and doctoral programmes together with regional, national as well as international graduate schools.

Within the area of Production, Chalmers has programmes in four broad fields:

  • mechanical
  • automation & mechatronics
  • industrial & product design engineering
  • industrial engineering & management.

Production related bachelor and master programmes attract about 2 200 full-time students at Chalmers! The MSc Eng programmes in Industrial Design Engineering and Industrial Engineering and Management are among the very most selective of all Swedish university programmes. The MSc Eng programme in Automation & Mechatronics engineering as well as the BSc Eng programme in Mechanical Engineering have recently been redesigned to meet raised student requirements.

Do you want to try out research?

We have now launched the Chalmers AoA Production Research Associate programme. The programme will enable talented students from our master programmes to obtain some research experience or in some other way support a faculty member. The programme is inspired by the ”Undergraduate Rese​arch Opportunity Programs” often found at US universities.
