Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Industrial Design Engineering is a two-year programme. It leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme includes core and advanced specialisation studies as well as a Master's thesis.

In core studies, 33 ECTS credits, you will study research methods, product design and production process, selection of materials, applied mathematics and additive manufacturing.

Advanced specialisation studies, 57 ECTS credits, focus on topics such as sustainable design, ergonomics in design, interaction of products and consumers, productivity and sustainability in sheet metal production, design communication and visualisation, innovation in design, product design and production processes, structural and mechanical system design, forming and assembly for metal product design.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is an advanced research project during the programme's fourth semester. The Master's thesis requires approximately six months of full-time work.

Most of the lectures and exercises take place online on the Moodle platform. Contact teaching mainly takes place on the Lahti campus, but some seminars and presentations are held on the Lappeenranta campus.

The course includes a few in-class lectures. The laboratories and other facilities of the Department of Mechanical Engineering are located in Lappeenranta, but some facilities are also available in Lahti. This programme is well suited for people with a full-time job.
