Engineering Structures and Materials - Master's Degree Programme

The world is changing, the technology is developing and we need to follow the fast moving trends and adapt. Controlling factors as improved performance, cost-effectiveness and safety become crucial in the hunt for success. The Master's in Engineering Structures and Materials will provide you with all the necessary engineering tools to turn challenges into opportunities.

This master programme provides an expertise and advanced knowledge, skills and general competence in Mechanical and Structural Engineering and Material Technology. Graduated students will have a background in engineering science and basic engineering subjects. The students will be able to apply this knowledge within their area of specialisations. The students will be qualified to participate and manage the development and implementation of new technology, methods and principles. Candidates with a master’s degree in Engineering Structures and Materials will be qualified for many attractive jobs in civil engineering structures, production and manufacturing industries, mechanical systems, renewable energy projects and offshore industries. Within the two-year master's programme, students can immerse themselves in mechanical systems, renewable energy, civil engineering structures or offshore structures.

The master’s programme currently has two specialisations:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
