Do you enjoy working with mechanics and technology? Do you want to design, develop and realise new products and production systems? And would you like to participate in the strengthening of a company’s competitiveness? Then the Master’s programme in Manufacturing Technology at Aalborg University may be the right education for you.


Studying Manufacturing Technology at Aalborg University, you learn how to develop and optimise products and production equipment and you gain tools and methods to deal with complex challenges within this field of study. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to explore topics such as:

  • Virtual product and process development
  • Material and process technology
  • Robotics and automation technology
  • Process modelling
  • Simulation
  • Production modelling and monitoring
  • Production planning and control
  • Intelligent manufacturing
  • Engineering optimisation
  • Product development and modelling

In recent years, there has been an increase in the focus on robotics, automation and digitalisation in the business community, which in turn increases the demand for new products, methods of production and services. This trend is called Industry 4.0 and AAU is particularly focused on preparing you for this development within the manufacturing industry. You and your fellow students learn how to handle the different issues that occur as a result of this new trend by e.g. working in AAU’s brand new smart lab, which is an imitation of a production line. The smart lab lets you experiment with programming, automation and digitalisation in relation to manufacturing technology.
