With a master’s degree in Product and Systems Engineering the future is unlimited. You can take part in shaping the future and contribute to solving challenges related to a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly supply of food, energy and clean water.

Welcome week 2022

Information and programme for the welcome week

This program of study focuses on the design of systems and equipment related to ocean industries, energy and water infrastructure. The applied design methods and technologies are generic and can be applied in a wide range of industries and applications.

You will learn about systems that address the complex interactions between technology and operators, and how to apply new methods and technologies. You will be challenged in developing new solutions that are smart, safe, environmentally friendly and efficient.

The program has the following study tracks:

  • Sustainable Energy Systems
  • Mechatronics
  • Smart Water and Environmental Engineering
