Materials in Industrial Applications
7.5 ECTS credits
Mechanical engineers working with development and manufacturing of new products need to have a profound understanding and knowledge about commercially available engineering materials. In this course you will have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge about steels, cast irons, light alloys, copper alloys, ceramics and composites. For each group of materials, microstructure, properties and application areas in connection to heat treatments and other processing techniques will be treated.
Progressive specialisation: A1N (has only first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Master's level
Admission requirements: Thermodynamics and Energy Egineering 7.5 ECTS, Solid Mechanics 7.5 ECTS and Materials Engineering 7.5 ECTS, or equivalent, and upper secondary level English 6 or B, or equivalent.
Selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both.
