Mechanical Engineering

During this  two-year programme (120 credits), students will receive multi-disciplinary education of the highest international standard, leading to a MSc degree. Close contact with leading Finnish companies will ensure that advanced skills and knowledge can be applied to relevant industrial problems.

Students will choose three of the following five modules (20 credits each) to form the basis of their studies:

  • Product Development, 20 cr
  • Mechanics of Materials, 20 cr
  • Digital Design and Manufacturing, 21 cr
  • Mechatronics, 20 cr
  • Innovative Structural Design, 20 cr
  • Individual Study Module, 20 cr

To complete the MSc degree students have also to choose methodological studies (10 cr), elective studies (20 cr) and Master's thesis (30 cr). Foreign language studies (3 cr) are compulsory and they can be either part of elective studies or methodological studies depending on the course.

K410-3 Product Development 20 cr

prof. Kalevi Ekman

Module emphasis is on interdiciplinary product development by organizing a conjoint complex development process including conjoint development of mechanical, electronic and software modules. The emphasis in System Thinking is on the understanding of complex systems behavior when System Engineering is focusing on organizing and designing the systems. System approach is a combination of this analysis and desing perspectives and it gives a special importance to product architecture. This means in practice answering issues such as type of correspondence between functions and components. What level of modularity and platform consideration to apply to the system designed? The students are applying the knowledge gathered in the product development and system approach in concrete project oriented courses.
