The Mechanical Engineering master's programme at Linköping University covers the entire product development cycle, from idea to the final product. With five specialisations and close industry collaborations, you will be qualified for work in any field of development, engineering or manufacturing.


Mechanical engineers are expected to be creative, have broad knowledge and work as members of multidisciplinary teams. With this Mechanical Engineering master's programme at Linköping University, you will become a problem-solver with a holistic perspective, ready to take part in today’s product development to create tomorrow’s sustainable society.

The first semester consists of mandatory courses in mechanical engineering, such as fluid power systems, computational mechanics, and deformation and fracture of engineering materials. They are combined with courses in product development and project management.

In the second semester, you may choose among five specialisations:

  • Applied Mechanics – classical and modern applied mechanics with a strong focus on the modelling and simulation of solid mechanics, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.
  • Engineering Design and Product Development – modern and advanced approaches in CAD, design optimisation and product development.
  • Engineering Materials – deep knowledge about the behaviour of classical metallic engineering materials, but also about plastics and new emerging materials.
  • Manufacturing Engineering – covers aspects from supply chain level down to automation and manufacturing processes. You will also learn about the factories of the future.
  • Mechatronics – how to design and analyse controlled mechanical systems such as hydraulic systems.
