This programme is also well suited for people already in the working world in Finland and abroad.

The programme includes core studies and specialisation studies.

Core studies (32 ECTS credits) deal with research methods, structural materials, engineering mathematics, 3D printing, and fibre materials.

Specialisation studies (88 ECTS credits) include topics such as package design and package manufacturing, sheet metal production, sustainable design engineering, joining technology, design and manufacturing processes, the design and manufacturability of metal products, visualisation, and creativity in design.

The Master's thesis and seminar, 30 ECTS credits, is a part of the specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.
