Program description

Materials and Manufacturing

Products are tending to become more complex with greater demands on performance, energy consumption, environmental impact and costs. Casting is the most used method to manufacture components, which provides enormous freedom when it comes to developing innovative, knowledge-intensive and sustainable solutions for increased industrial competitiveness.

The Master’s programme in Materials and Manufacturing is developed in a collaboration between the School of Engineering, Swedish Foundry Association, Swerea SWECAST and the foundry industry. The industry is involved in lecturers, with expertise, study visits, and through a collaboration on relevant projects.

For Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering or Applied Physics, relevant courses in Materials Science, Manufacturing Technology, Thermodynamics and Solid Mechanics must be included. For Chemical Engineering relevant courses in physics must also be included. The bachelor’s degree should comprise a minimum of 15 credits in mathematics. Proof of English proficiency is required.

Program content

The Master’s programme is interdisciplinary and includes aspects such as:

  • solidification of cast metals, cast metals processes, heat treatment, defect and failure analysis
  • the relationship between mould filling, solidification of metals, defect formation and performance of castings
  • predictive tools to simulate the complex relationship between the cast metal and the processes that make it possible for the engineer to further optimize cast components without compromising performance.

Through the courses it is possible to collaborate with partner companies, which facilitates the connection between theory and current professional practice. The courses offer the students opportunities to work with problems/challenges from professional practice related to current topics on the courses. The mixture of professionals and students from the bachelor level enables both networking and a connection between theory and practice throughout the programme.

Program delivery

The courses are in English and are mostly web-based, for example through video lectures, discussion forums and e-meetings. Meetings in Jönköping for laboratory work is never mandatory but can occur in some of the courses. You will study half-time, which means that you can choose to combine your studies with work.
