The programme is arranged on the Lahti campus. Certain lectures and tutorials also take place on the Lappeenranta campus.

This programme is well suited for people with a full-time job in Finland or abroad.

The programme includes core studies and specialisation studies.

Core studies (32 ECTS credits) deal with research methods, structural materials, applied mathematics, 3D printing, and high performance products.

Specialisation studies (88 ECTS credits) include topics such as package design, package manufacture, sheet metal production, sustainable design engineering, design communication and visualisation, ergonomics in design, product design, production processes, design thinking, structural and mechanical system design, and forming and assembly for metal product design.

The Master's thesis, 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.
