In our high-tech society there is a great need for advanced knowledge about materials, because the materials often determine a product’s quality, durability, functionality etc. By studying in the Materials Technology programme of Aalborg University you can participate in the development of the materials of the future.


A cross-disciplinary Engineering programme

During the Materials Technology programme of Aalborg University, you will obtain an understanding of the issues that industrial production companies, consulting engineering companies, certification companies, and research institutions meet when they produce and use materials. Furthermore, you will learn how to apply this knowledge in practice.

You will gain knowledge of different engineering materials such as plastic, composite materials, alloys, and steel, while you also gain a competence profile in the field of solid mechanics.

The programme is cross-disciplinary and contains elements from physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and traditional mechanical engineering.

This is a full-time study programme, which is characterised by problem based project work in groups. You will be working closely with other students most of the time, and you are required to be present at the university on a daily basis and spend a vast majority of your day there.

As a graduate, you will be able to work in private or public companies where a central part of the job is an extensive knowledge of the properties of materials, knowledge of manufacturing and processing methods, and the interaction between these.
