Graduates from Materials and Manufacturing Engineering solve engineering challenges because they are able to optimize advanced materials and complex manufacturing processes for high-tech industrial production.
Materials and manufacturing engineering is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on the application of materials as well as process and production technologies in high-tech products within various fields, including energy production, the automotive and aeronautical industries, medical devices, and communication.
Study programme focus
The key to develop and optimize products with improved functionality and extended lifetime is the interplay between:
- the internal structure of materials
- process technologies for manufacturing and post-processing of a high-tech product
- product properties
- product performance under its operating conditions
The programme enables you to predict, control, and optimize material properties and to analyse and optimize the industrial process technologies, which are relevant for advanced products at both micro and macro scale.
To obtain the MSc degree in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering, the student must fulfil the following requirements:
- Have passed at least 30 ECTS credit points within the General Competencies
- Have passed at least 30 ECTS credit points within the Technological Specialization Courses
- Have performed a Master Thesis of at least 30 ECTS credit points within the disciplines of the programme
- Have passed a number of Elective Courses such that when combined with the Master Thesis, they comprise 60 ECTS credit points.
General competence courses:
The following courses, which integrate materials and manufacturing processes, are mandatory:
|41656||Materials in Advanced Applications and Products||10||point||F4 (Tues 13-17, Fri 8-12)|
|41744||Precision Manufacturing||5||point||E4A (Tues 13-17)|
Also, at least one course (5 ECTS) must be chosen from the following list:
|41664||Physical Metallurgy: phase transformations in metals and alloys||5||point||E2B (Thurs 8-12)|
|41742||Introduction to Micro Mechanical Systems Design and Manufacture||5||point||E1B (Thurs 13-17)|
|41747||Modelling in materials and manufacturing engineering - heat transfer and diffusion||5||point||E4B (Fri 8-12)|
Also, 10 ECTS of the following courses are mandatory:
|42085||Strategy, design and market||5||point||E2B (Thurs 8-12)|
|42430||Project Management||5||point||F1A (Mon 8-12)|
|42490||Technology, economics, management and organisation (TEMO)||10||point||E5 (Wed 8-17), F5 (Wed 8-17)|
Technological specialization courses
The technological specialization courses are divided into two disciplines: Materials Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering, respectively. From the technological specialisation courses, a total of 30 points must be chosen such that both areas are covered with at least 10 ECTS. This can be achieved either by distributing materials- and manufacturing-related courses equally (15+15 ECTS) or by specialization in one of the disciplines according to 20+10 ECTS (i.e. Specialization in Materials Engineering is obtained by selecting 20 ECTS from materials-related courses and 10 ECTS from manufacturing-related courses. Specialisation in Manufacturing Engineering is achieved by selecting 20 ECTS from manufacturing-related courses and 10 ECTS from materials-related courses).
Examples of possible study plans for both disciplines, i.e. specialisation in Materials Engineering or Manufacturing Engineering, for study start in either the fall or the spring semester are available on the education's homepage http://www.dtu.dk/english/education/msc/programmes/materials_and_manufacturing_engineering#study-programme__focus-areas.
For individual guidance and support for planning the study with a meaningful combination of courses, also in relation to the individual educational background, students are very welcome to contact the program coordinator by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .

Any course classified as MSc course in DTU's course base may be taken for credit as an elective course. This includes general competence and technological specialization courses in excess of the minimal requirements. Master students are allowed to take Bachelor DTU courses with the objective to obtaining basic skills not originally obtained in the qualifying bachelor degree (maximum 10 ECTS)
Elective courses can also be filled with so-called special courses (up to a total of 20 ECTS) for dedicated project work. Students are welcome to contact the program coordinator for suggestions of suitable courses supplementing the study program.
Only applicants holding either a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a Master of Science in Engineering programme. From September 2017 the bachelor degree must be less than 10 years old.
The individual MSc Eng programme states in detail which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to complete supplementary educational activities.
Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes.
The specific requirements must be met before graduating from the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. The courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies within one year from the conditional admission.
Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are charged. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn.
The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).
Academic requirements for this programme
Admission to the MSc program in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering is directed towards all students who have completed a BSc or BEng education in mechanical engineering, physics, chemistry, chemical or civil engineering or who have another relevant academic background, where fundamentals in Materials Science and Technology have been passed.
