    In our high-tech society there is a great need for advanced knowledge about materials, as the materials to a high degree are crucial to a products capacity. Do you want to participate in the development of the materials of the future? In that case Materials Technology is the right programme for you. You will obtain an understanding of the problems that industrial production companies, consulting engineering companies, certification companies and research institutions meet in connection with the production and use of materials. And you will be able to transform this knowledge to practice.

    During the masters programme, you will gain a profound knowledge of different engineering materials such as plastic, composite materials, alloys and steel, while you also gain a solid competence profile in the fields of solid mechanics.

    The programme is cross-disciplinary and contains elements from physics, chemistry, nanotechnology and traditional mechanical engineering. The teaching combines lectures, laboratory work and project work.

    Career opportunities

    With a master’s degree in Materials Technology you will be able to work in private or public companies where a central part of the job is a profound knowledge of the properties of materials, knowledge of manufacturing and processing methods, and the interaction between these. You can work as for instance:

    • development or production engineer
    • specialist
    • project manager
    • production or development manager

    You can work in both Danish and international industrial production companies, consulting engineering companies, certification companies, and research institutions.

    Materials Technology is a two-year master's programme which gives you 120 ECTS credits. The structure of the programme is outlined below:

    1st semester

    During the 1st semester you work with:

    • Metals and alloys
    • Fracture mechanics and fatigue
    • Continuum mechanics
    • Continuum mechanics with microstructure
    • Metallic materials.

    2nd semester

    The subjects of the 2nd semester are:

    • Simulation and measuring of materials behaviour
    • Polymers and composite materials
    • Polymer Chemistry
    • Fundamental polymer chemistry
    • Polymers and polymer composites.

    3rd semester

    During 3 semester you work with Industrial development and Morphological modelling and characterisation. Alternatively, you have the opportunity to study one semester abroad or to do an internship in Denmark or abroad.

    4th semester

    This semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.
