During this Manufacturing Engineering programme from University West, you will be trained to plan, design, develop and integrate processes, systems, machines and tools for production of high-quality products. 

Outstanding features include integration of real work situations, access to advanced manufacturing laboratories and a possible paid work placement.

University West is Sweden’s leading university for Work Integrated Learning (WIL). The university was tasked with the development of WIL by the Swedish government 15+ years ago and continues to lead the field today. WIL allows you to put your knowledge and skills into practice within real-world contexts.

Advanced Laboratory and Acces to Experts

As a Manufacturing Engineering student you will have access to the Production Technology Centre (PTC) during your studies. PTC is one of the largest and newest manufacturing laboratories in Sweden, equipped with industrial research facilities such as metal powder and wire additive manufacturing (3D printing), robot welding and thermal spraying cells, machine tools and materials analysis equipment. 

Here you will have the opportunity to do research and experimental work in collaboration with experienced researchers, engineers and technicians in the field of manufacturing engineering.


Companies of all sizes need manufacturing engineers to handle tasks and challenges relevant to manufacturing processes.
