Last edit: 09/03/2012
The Master of Science in Engineering programme in Vehicle Engineering consists of 300 credits, which at normal study speed corresponds to five years of full time study. The programme’s first three years are in the first cycle and can be concluded with a technology Bachelor’s Degree, if the student applies to do so. The last two years are concluded in the second cycle.
The programme provides a stable technical foundation as well as knowledge and abilities to further the development of all possible vehicles. Mathematics, mechanics, and solid mechanics are studied during the first two years. Years 3-5 focus on the specialisation areas. The programme gives students the ability to optimize the following factors: stability, solidity, security, environmentally friendly and comfort. This demands a combination of creative thinking and advanced calculation.
The first three years in the programme are mainly in Swedish; although, some English literature and occasional elements where English is used are present. The final two years of courses are mainly in English.
