Internal Combustion Engines education is focused on developing and engineering new and innovative combustion engine concepts in close co-operation with leading industrial enterprises.
Students in the Internal Combustion Engines track in the Engineering Design Master programme learn to develop engines for energy transformation in vehicle transmission systems, with an efficient aid and support from industrially relevant and state-of-the-art tools and methods.
With today’s environment legislation and environmental awareness, the internal combustion engine will have a major role in the future. The industry phases big challenges. This means big investments and many new exciting work opportunities.
Sweden has a very strong motor industry represented by Scania, Saab and Volvo, as well as consulting firms and sub-contractors specialising in combustion engines. The motor industry is in great need of engineers now that new emissions regulations and the increasingly stringent requirements with respect to lowering fuel consumption are making it necessary for the industry to invest in development to keep up with international competition.
The motor industry employs engineers from many different areas of specialisation. Graduates from the Internal combustion engines Master´s programme have many competitive advantages, such as their documented interest in the field and the combination of expert knowledge and an overall understanding. This broad-based expertise is hard to acquire in any other way.
