Materials and manufacturing engineering is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on the application of materials as well as process and production technologies in high-tech products within various fields, including energy production, the automotive and aeronautical industries, medical devices, and communication.
Study programme focus
The key to develop and optimize products with improved functionality and extended lifetime is the interplay between:
- the internal structure of materials
- process technologies for manufacturing and post-processing of a high-tech product
- product properties
- product performance under its operating conditions (see figure)
The programme offered at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) enables you to predict, control, and optimize material properties and to analyse and optimize the industrial process technologies, which are relevant for advanced products at both micro and macro scale.
The study programme contains no actual study line, but rather two focus areas: ‘Materials Engineering’ and ‘Manufacturing Engineering’. When choosing your courses and designing your study plan make sure to include both areas to ensure an ideal combination of both materials and manufacturing engineering.
