Course content

Degree: Master of Science (two years) with a major in Mechanical Engineering

Teaching language: English

The Mechanical Engineering master's programme covers the entire product development cycle, from idea to the final product. With five specialisations and close industry collaborations, you will be qualified for work in any field of development, engineering or manufacturing.

Mechanical engineers are expected to be creative, have broad knowledge and work as members of multidisciplinary teams. With this programme, you will become a problem-solver with a holistic perspective, ready to take part in today’s product development to create tomorrow’s sustainable society.

Five specialisations

The first semester consists of mandatory courses in mechanical engineering, such as fluid power systems, computational mechanics, and deformation and fracture of engineering materials. They are combined with courses in product development and project management.

In the second semester, you may choose among five specialisations:

  • Applied Mechanics – classical and modern applied mechanics with a strong focus on the modelling and simulation of solid mechanics, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics
  • Engineering Design and Product Development – modern and advanced approaches in CAD, design optimisation and product development
  • Engineering Materials – deep knowledge about the behaviour of classical metallic engineering materials but also learn about plastics and new emerging materials
  • Manufacturing Engineering – covers aspects from supply chain level down to automation and manufacturing processes. Also learn about factories of the future
  • Mechatronics – how to design and analyse controlled mechanical systems such as hydraulic systems.

Project course and thesis

Each specialisation has a major project course in the third semester, where you work with industry-related problems and apply knowledge obtained from the specialisation courses. This course prepares you for the master thesis project in the final semester. The thesis is usually written together with a fellow student in close collaboration with a company, either a small local business or a global industrial corporation like Siemens or Scania. The thesis project can also be performed as part of a research project at LiU.
