In the graduate school, you get to develop your knowledge in manufacturing techniques and production systems for the automotive and engineering industries. The graduate school is mainly focused on engineering production but also includes other areas such as the process and food industry. After completing the graduate school, you must be well prepared for continued independent and high-quality academic or industrial research, development and teaching activities in the subject area, both nationally and internationally. There are three different specializations to choose from, product development, manufacturing processes and production systems. Read more about these in the study plan.
The graduate school is organised within the Department of Industrial and Materials Science.
