The programme

The programme is a two-year programme at second-cycle level. Here you will acquire skills in modern production and logistics systems, and knowledge of how you can develop these systems successfully and competitively. In addition to knowledge of analysis and evaluation you will also acquire an advanced base in the planning and optimising of production and logistics, including the use of simulation programmes. During the programme there will be numerous contacts with industry, in the form of guest lectures as well as of applied project assignments.

This programme is a part of the research profile of Innovation and Product Realisation (IPR). This cross-disciplinary research specialisation has a unique combination of research in art and design, engineering and innovation/entrepreneurship. The research is directed towards design studies, and many of our research projects are done in collaboration with industry and society. Several of the courses in the programme have been produced and are run by our active researchers. As a Master's student you can be invited to do your degree project within the frame of one of the ongoing research projects. This provides a very good basis for the students who are interested in future doctoral studies.

Future and jobs

On completion of the programme you will be very competitive in the national and international labour market. You can work in industry as a highly-qualified expert, or pursue a research career in academia. At MDH there are a number of research teams, in product and process development, who are developing processes for competitive product realisation.
