Project work on future Engineering Materials
7.5 ECTS credits
The conditions of mankind have always been dependent on our ability to use materials in the world around, such as corresponding to ages of featured materials: stone, bronze, steel- and semiconductor materials. The course treats advanced engineering and functional materials developed in present times and those with a potential for future applications. The students are working with course lectures and assignments in parallel, where the students will acquire knowledge in advanced materials mechanics and structure, as well as skills in the evaluation of their properties. A larger assignment is performed in a study group, and is accounted for by written reports and oral presentations.
Progressive specialisation: A1N (has only first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Master's level
Admission requirements: Mechanical Engineering 75 ECTS cr, including courses in materials engineering 20 ECTS cr and solid mechanics 7.5 ECTS cr, 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.
