General organization:


The purpose of the programme is to offer an engineering education within the materials field where emphasis is on synthesis, chemical characterisation, physical and chemical properties and applications. There is also a close connection to industrially relevant materials, present products as well as materials for the future. The programme focus on different types of materials and materials chemistry. In most courses there is also a strong connection to industrial applications either on a regional, national or international basis.


Learning outcome:

The students will after the programme be able to:
  • Control and properly use fundamentals in the field of materials science, with focus on chemical aspects and properties.
  • Design and synthesize a wide range of materials, relevant both for industry and for academic research, in accordance with a sustainable development.
  • Analyze and evaluate the results from a wide range of materials characterization methods.
  • Learning of professional skills are integrated in the course package:
a. Design, plan and execute a project in a mixed group of students.
b. Communicate experimental results and literature studies, both written and orally, and understand the importance of originality.
  • Analyze and evaluate innovation processes for new materials design.
