    Mechatronic System Design Mechatronic System Design

    After the completion of the Master´s Programme in Mechatronic System Design the student will acquire extensive knowledge of the design, hydraulics, control, dynamics and simulation of machines. A student will also learn about environmentally conscious design and the development of new technologies to solve current and future global problems. During the studies, a student will be able to apply simulation tools to analyse demanding machine systems. This expertise can be applied to the most demanding research and development processes of the global industry. 

    A student will: 
    • be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of dynamics of mechatronic machines, simulation tools and usage of them, multidisciplinary product development process.
    • have adopted the principles of applying theoretical methods into practice using virtual tools.
    • have ability to design and implement control systems for mechatronic machines.
    • be able to work with others in task-orientated groups participating and interacting in the group in a productive manner and lead and manage design projects
    • be able to logically think through industrial research and development problems and solve them, to contribute to innovative thinking
    • be able to understand the needs and special features of other disciplines out of core competence in mechanical engineering design
       

    The head of the Master´s programme in Mechatronic System Design is professor, D.Sc. (Tech.) Jussi Sopanen. 

    Welded Metal Structures Welded Metal Structures

    After completing Master’s Programme in Welded Metal Structures a student will learn about the design, analysis, fabrication and research of modern and competitive welded metal structures. A student will acquire a good understanding about the strength and ductility properties of metallic materials and their behaviour under long-term loading together with their weldability aspects. This will provide competencies to design different types of metal structures such as machine bodies, bridges, buildings, structural components and bodies for vehicles or supporting structures for different types of engineering applications.

    A student will:
    • be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of design and fabrication of welded metal structures for demanding applications
    • have adopted principles of fatigue failure analysis of welded metal structures and metallurgical theories describing the behavior of metallic materials due to different welding processes
    • have adopted the principles of innovative and critical thinking and purposeful problems solving
    • be able to work with others in task-orientated groups and participate and interact in the group in a productive manner and lead and manage design projects
    • be able to logically think through theoretical and practical problems and solve it
    • be able to contribute to innovative thinking to improve the properties and lifetime expectations of welded metal structures


    The head of the Master´s programme in Welded Metal Structures is professor, D.Sc. (Tech.) Antti Salminen. 

    Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering

    After completing Master’s Programme in Sustainable Production in Mechanical Engineering a student will be ready to engage in modern, world-class manufacturing for a sustainable future. A student will learn to see the possibilities and restrictions of sustainable production. During the studies, a student will develop skills enabling to participate in demanding global development tasks of product and production design. A student will be able to analyse challenging production tasks also by using simulation software.

    A student will:

    • be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of manufacturing as a whole and an essential part of the company business
    • have adopted the principles of the most common and widely used manufacturing processes
    • be able to work with others in task-orientated groups participating and interacting in the group in a productive manner and lead and manage individual production
    • be able to logically think through existing manufacturing problems in daily use and solve them, to contribute to innovative thinking
    • be able to understand possibilities of automation and robots for manufacturing stages
    • be able to understand the meaning of material selection and design for manufacturing of products and sustainability viewpoints
    • be able to rethink existing manufacturing methods and generate innovative new methods for improving the whole factory concept and production
    • be able to well understand economy of manufacturing.
