Engineering Structures and Materials - hva lærer du?

A candidate who has completed a 2-year master's degree in Engineering Structures and Materials (120 ECTS) shall have the following learning outcomes defined as knowledge, skills and general competence:
Knowledge

  • LUK1: The candidate has advanced knowledge in the analysis, design and maintenance of engineering structures and specialized insight depending on the choice of specialization (i.e. mechanical systems, renewable energy systems, civil engineering structures, offshore structures).
  • LUK2: A candidate with a specialization in mechanical systems has a thorough knowledge of design, modeling and analysis of mechanical components / systems, microstructure and properties of metallic materials, corrosion and corrosion protection. A candidate with a specialization in renewable energy has a thorough knowledge on design, modelling and analysis of solar, wind and wave energy conversion systems, heating and ventilation of buildings, passive energy systems, energy conversion efficiency, science and technology of photovoltaic (PV) materials, business models involving renewable energy, energy systems interaction (balancing, production and demand, energy storage, batteries, thermal storage), sustainable city development and climate change. A candidate with a specialization in civil engineering structures has a thorough knowledge of non-linear static/dynamic analysis, environmental loads, fatigue and accidental limit state designs, material technology, concrete construction, concrete technology, structural integrity and life extensions. A candidate with a specialization in offshore structures have thorough knowledge of non-linear static/dynamic analysis, environmental loads, fatigue and accidental limit state designs, functional requirements, material technology, marine technology and operations, structural integrity and life extensions and etc.
  • LUK3: Basic knowledge can use for research and development work in mechanical and structural engineering.
  • LUK4: The candidate has knowledge on general ethical aspects in the engineering discipline.

Skills
  • LUF1: The candidate can apply existing theories, methods and scientific insight in the field and work independently to solve practical and theoretical problems.
  • LUF2: High order skills in analysis, critical evaluation, or professional application and the ability to solve complex problems and think rigorously and independently.
  • LUF3: The candidate can analyze and deal critically with various sources of information and use them to structure and formulate scholarly arguments.
