On completion of the Mechanical Engineering with Emphasis on Structural Mechanics programme from Blekinge Institute of Technology, you should master a coordinated method of working with analysis to support decisions in the product development process, covering the elements of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation, and optimisation.

Informed by a specialised knowledge in mathematics, numerical calculation methods, measurement technology, analysis of vibrations, acoustics and fracture mechanics, you will have a solid basis for working with performance prediction and ensuring that new products achieve their intended function.

The aim of the programme is to prepare students for participation in advanced product development or research within mechanical engineering. The aim is that, on completion of the programme, the student will master a coordinated method of working with analysis for decision support in the product development process, the extensive modules of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation, and optimisation.

Students are expected to keep up to date with current research of relevance to the field and considerably increase their ability to communicate their own contributions of scientific facts and relations both orally and in writing with the help of modern aids for visualisation and documentation.

In brief, the coordinated working method can be described as: Virtual models for the description of interesting product properties and behaviours are developed, verified and used for simulations of the functionality of the system. The simulation result is compared with experimental results of studies on delimited, simultaneously developed physical models, or with experiences from previous developments, with the aim of validating the virtual models.

Job profiles

Students with a higher education qualification from the programme can work within many different application fields and not only within sectors of pure mechanical engineering. The focus, normally, lies mainly on theoretical and experimental technical analysis for assessing product functionality and performance, e g especially regarding vibrations of structures. Dependent on the student’s own interests, a career can lead to assignments as technical expert or project manager and other leadership roles. A number of students also go on to continued third-cycle programmes in the area. Teaching in a multinational environment prepares the student for international work.
