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.
The first semester consists of mandatory courses in mechanical engineering, such as fluid power systems, computational mechanics, deformation and fracture of engineering materials, and product development.
In the second semester, you may choose among five specialisations:
- Applied Mechanics
- Engineering Design and Product Development
- Engineering Materials
- Manufacturing Engineering
For further information, please see under “Specialisations” below.
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 here at Linköping University.
