Master's Programme in Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering

To develop more sustainable societies, we need to understand better how to respond to environmental, social and economic challenges and transform industrial behaviour.

Modern engineering design can be implemented by hundreds of different manufacturing techniques, which are the last links of the value chain before the product is released to the customer. The optimal order-delivery chain and profitable business can be guaranteed by choosing the appropriate manufacturing techniques together with professional usage of them.

The manufacturing industry faces new challenges as customers' needs change due to increasing awareness of sustainable manufacturing methods and the development of new advanced materials. In this programme, you will acquire skills and knowledge, required to reform the manufacturing industry and to increase its competitiveness through sustainable production design.

During your studies, you will learn to see the possibilities and restrictions of sustainable production. You will develop skills, enabling you to participate in demanding global development tasks of product and production design. You will be able to analyse challenging production tasks also by using simulation software.

You will acquire skills in the most common manufacturing techniques and their future vision. You will be familiarised with both traditional manufacturing of metal constructions and modern production which utilises new fibre and composite based materials. Course topics will cover a wide range of production industry from food packaging to vehicle and civil industry.

All sessions of the programme will be available online. You will be able to participate in the programme according to the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) principle.
