Machines have enabled many seemingly unrealistic ideas and have facilitated a multitude of challenging functions. Machine science is one of the oldest and most traditional of the engineering sciences, characterized by a strong desire to think differently and effect change in the world. The high level civilization in the world is based strongly on welded metal structures, which keep constructions in shape and machines running. Their design and production are one of the most fascinating engineering tasks.
In this Master’s program you will acquire the newest and most purposeful knowledge and expertise for the design and manufacturing of innovative, sustainable, competitive and safe welded metal structures for demanding applications, especially for dynamic loading or arctic conditions.
The teaching combines theoretical studies and laboratory exercises in modern environment with advanced methods to ensure that you will have excellent skills for your future career in both academia and industry.
You will learn from different teams of experts from the laboratory of steel structures, welding and laser technologies who will bring the newest results of high-level research to you.
Teaching and research are carried out in close cooperation with enterprises and other universities and research institutions.
The program includes core studies, specialization studies, minor studies and elective studies.
Core studies (34 ECTS credits) include topics on research methods, structural materials, industrial manufacturing processes, reliability engineering design, management and leadership skills.
Specialization studies (55 ECTS credits) include studies on integrated design and fabrication of welded structures, structural design, fatigue design, advanced welding processes, sustainable welding production and welding metallurgy.
Minor studies (min. 20 ECTS credits) include three optional minor subjects in mechanical engineering: modern manufacturing, advanced digital laser based photonic production, advanced materials engineering and sustainability. Minor subject can also be selected from other minor subjects available.
Elective studies (to attain the full 120 ECTS credits) can include any courses offered by LUT.
The Master’s Thesis and Seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of specialization studies. The thesis an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. It is completed during the fourth semester of the degree program.
