What is the Master of Welding Engineering all about?

The Advanced Master is the ideal stepping-stone to a high-level job in the field of welding and joining technology. In many countries, there is a permanent and growing demand for scientists and engineers who are knowledgeable and trained at an academic level in the field of welding engineering.

The programme is indispensable (and obligatory) for engineers seeking to work as Responsible Welding Coordinators. Engineers interested in R&D, quality, design, production, maintenance and particularly welding metallurgy will also find the programme instructive.

Structure

4 Clusters in the programme:

  • Welding processes and equipment
  • Materials and their behaviour during welding
  • Construction and design
  • Fabrication, applications engineering

Degrees and certifications

Upon successful completion of the entire programme (60 ECTS), you will be awarded the degree of MSc in Welding Engineering

Upon successful completion of the course (40 ECTS), you gain access to the International Institute of Welding oral examination. A passing score results in IIW accreditation as a certified International Welding Engineer (IWE) and European Welding Engineer (EWE).

Technology Campus De Nayer, Authorised Training Body

The green KU Leuven Technology Campus De Nayer, near Mechelen, is certified as an Authorised Training Body for International Welding Engineering by the Belgian Welding Association (BVL), which represents the International Institute of Welding (IIW).

Objectives

This advanced master's programme strives to offer students a complete training in the professional niche of Welding Engineering. The programme has the following goals:

  • Guaranteeing a complete accordance with the minimal requirements of the International Institute of Welding as described in its IIW Guideline in document IAB 252r2-14 "Minimum Requirements for the Education, Examination and Qualification for Personnel with Responsibility for Welding Coordination";
  • Provide broad and in-depth knowledge and skills of all kinds of courses related to welding necessary for a welding engineer to function in the current social and economic context. These courses include welding processes, materials science, metallurgy of high and low alloy steels, non-ferrous materials, metallurgy of compounds of heterogenous materials, the prevention of corrosion and abrasion, construction codes, welding standards, design exercises, quality control, production and manufacturing techniques.

To this end, students must acquire sufficient knowledge, skills and abilities in order to:

  • Work as a qualified welding engineer with a sufficient scientific background in welding (i.e. materials science, corrosion and protection, welding processes, standards and codes, quality, workshop lay-outing) to tackle welding-related problems individually or as part of a team.
  • Be well acquainted with legal aspects, business economics, professional ethics and safety.
  • Obtain a professional attitude that demonstrates a clear volition towards technological innovation, creativity and lifelong learning.
  • Use available information sources in a fast and efficient manner (scientific databases, patent databases, norms and codes).

Career Options

This programme opens up a wide spectrum of professional possibilities and exposes you to an extremely varied field of action: petrochemistry, the aviation and aero-space industry, civil construction, assembly plants, the nuclear sector, shipping and logistics, general construction, and more. As a welding engineer, you will carry out a wide range of duties, including research, design, production, maintenance, sales and quality inspection. 

Our graduates find employment in local SMEs, large multinational industrial companies as well as private and public organisations at home and abroad. There is a real need for experts with the capability to conduct research, carry out quality control analyses, and perform inspections, monitoring and certification in the broad field of welding. Some graduates start a career as independent consultants.
