The 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 Structural and Mechanical Engineering 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. 

Learning outcomes

For more information, please see the study program description of:

  • Bachelor's program in Mechanical Engineering (three years program)
  • Bachelor's program in Civil Engineering (three years program)
  • Master's program in Strucutral and Mechanical Engineering (two years program) 

Syllabus

  • Bachelor's program in Civil Engineering (three years program)
  • Master's program in Strucutral and Mechanical Engineering (two years program) 

Career prospects

The programme qualifies the graduates for a broad range of positions in private industry and public organizations. Since the core of the master programme consists of commonly usable principles and methods, graduate students can qualify for many attractive job positions in the area of mechanical and structural engineering and materials technology in offshore and civil engineering industries, renewable energy projects, production and manufacturing industries and a diverse range of mechanical operations.  

There will always be a need of buildings, roads, bridges, materials, machinery, production and manufacturing processes wind/wave and solar energy systems and graduates will therefore be attractive in the industry and in the international job market. 

Many will also have interesting job opportunities within research, education, or in public sector devoted to control, regulation and law enforcement of industrial sectors.
